Have You Been Diagnosed with Gum Disease?

Are you seeking the best treatment option for gum disease? Consider Pinhole Gum Surgery. This innovative procedure offers a minimally invasive solution to correct gum recession, without the need for scalpels, sutures, or grafts.

Pinhole® Gum Surgery, also known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique or Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®, was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, D.D.S. This breakthrough treatment provides a more comfortable and efficient way to restore your gums and enhance your oral health.


Less Invasive Than Traditional Gum Grafting

One of the significant benefits of the Chao Pinhole Technique is that it is far less invasive than traditional gum grafting surgery. Traditional gum grafting involves taking donor tissue or using artificial grafts to rebuild the gumline, requiring full oral surgery to attach the grafts. In contrast, the Chao Pinhole Technique requires no surgery.

No Need for Scalpels

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive procedure, eliminating the need for full-fledged oral surgery. The closest it comes to making incisions is placing a few precise pinholes in the gum tissue.

Fast Recovery Times

Traditional gum grafting surgery can take weeks to heal as the new tissue integrates with the existing gumline. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique offers a much faster recovery since no new tissue is placed and there are no incisions to heal.

Less Bleeding During Treatment

Since no incisions are needed, patients experience minimal blood loss during the procedure. This reduces the risks associated with bleeding, ensuring better patient wellness and stable vitals.

Minimal Discomfort During Healing

Minimally invasive procedures generally result in minimal discomfort post-treatment. Patients of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique experience minor side effects and typically do not require powerful pain medications or extended time off work.

Low Risk of Complications

With less bleeding and no need for scalpels or sutures, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique has a very low risk of complications both during the procedure and throughout the recovery period.

No Sutures Needed

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique does not require grafts, which means there is no need for stitches or sutures. The gum tissue is simply loosened and repositioned, and the pinholes heal naturally without the need for sutures.
