Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) Receding gum treatment performed by Dr Colin Houston in Staines, Middlesex

WHAT IS GUM RECESSION?

Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.

HOW IS PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE™ (PST™) PERFORMED?

During the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gum line to cover the exposed root structure.

There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. It involves simply the adjustment of the existing tissue.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHAO PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE (PST™)?

The benefits of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ are many:

  • Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
  • Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
  • No need for uncomfortable sutures
  • No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
  • No need to take donor tissue from the patient’s palate
  • Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results
