A virtually pain free option to correct gum recession. Scapal free - Suture free - Conventional Graft Free Patients and Doctors love it because it's quick, easy and instantly pleasing The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours and patients are back in action the next day in most cases

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST), invented and patented by John Chao, DDS, MADG, is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole made by a needle, Dr. Chao uses specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
