Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique for Gum Recession Treatment in Bradenton and Sarasota
The Chao Pinhole Surgery Technique is a gum recession treatment technique you want to know about. It’s not just minimally invasive; it doesn’t require incisions, sutures, grafting or cutting. Recovery time is minimal, and results are amazing.
Breakthrough Minimally Invasive and Fast Treatment for Gum Recession
Not only do receding gums make you look old, it is vital that they be corrected if you are to have a healthy mouth. Gum recession causes the roots of teeth to be exposed, leaving them open to decay and damage. It also leaves your gum tissues subject to infection and disease.
Traditional gum recession treatment requires surgical procedures that use incisions to remove a piece of healthy tissue from the roof of your mouth, and further incisions to graft it into the area of recession. This is followed by sutures, a long healing time and sometimes considerable discomfort.
Some of our patients can now take advantage of an alternative minimally invasive treatment for gum recession known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgery Technique (PST). With PST, receding gums can be effectively repaired without the cutting, grafting, suturing and post-operative discomfort that is part of traditional surgery. Drs. Ryan, Tyler, and Thomas Rubino are a few of only a handful of dentists in the United States that are trained and licensed to deliver this breakthrough procedure.
A faster and more comfortable procedure
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique makes it possible for your doctor to treat up to 14 teeth at one time. Treatment is performed using a local anesthetic, and the entire procedure can be completed in about two hours. Since there is no cutting, grafting or suturing needed, there is virtually no pain and minimal downtime. In fact, most patients are back to their regular activities the next day.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique was developed by Dr. John Chao in 2006. It has been tested over many years and has been shown to uniformly produce stable and long-lasting results.

How the Pinhole Surgical Procedure Works
Before starting the procedure, the affected teeth are cleaned and prepared, after which the gum is numbed with a local anesthetic. An entry point, about the size of a pinhole, in the gum tissue over the affected teeth is then made. A special dental instrument is then placed through this pinhole and the gum tissue is gently freed so it can be repositioned. Once free, the gums are guided over the roots of the affected teeth and restored to a natural-looking and healthy gum line.
Your doctor will then use a small angled instrument to insert collagen strips through the entry point and place them inside the gums. This stabilizes the gums in position and assists healing.
