Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?

Pinhole surgery, developed by Dr. Chao, is a ground breaking technique for gum rejuvenation. Over time, some people develop receding gum tissue that can become unsightly and potentially lead to tooth loss. Dr. Brown is one of a few dentists worldwide who is certified by the Chao Pinhole Academy as a provider of this technique.

Pinhole Surgery vs Gum Grafting

Traditionally, treatment for this condition is with grafting procedures that involve removing tissue from the roof of the mouth and transplanting it to the teeth with recession. While this procedure is a predictable means to gain root surface coverage, it is also associated with pain from both surgical sites. The Chao Pinhole Technique does not rely upon taking tissue from the roof of the mouth. Instead, we place a small hole in the tissue above the gums and then we push the gums downwards to cover the recession. Collagen is placed to keep the tissue in place. No sutures, no donor site.
