The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®)., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for the treatment of gum recession.
This procedure is performed by making a small access in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded parts of the teeth. Once the tissue is loosened and positioned over the receded areas, tiny collagen strips are inserted into the access to hold the gum tissue in position. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
