Pinhole Surgical Gumlift
Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique
What is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)?
This groundbreaking procedure represents the most cutting-edge process in dealing with gum recession. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique offers the most effective results while avoiding incisions and sutures, ensuring a minimally invasive process which leads to a better overall patient experience. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique was created by Dr. John Chao, who personally trained Dr. Weinstein.
This technique is significantly different than traditional grafting because it involves a far less intrusive process. Typical gum recession treatments utilize tissue grafts and/or donor tissue, which are used to fortify and stabilize the gumline. This procedure is far more involved and time-consuming, and is generally unpleasant for the typical patient. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique accomplishes comparable results while offering a much more pleasant overall experience – truly a “win-win”.
