Are the roots of your teeth exposed when you smile? Are you unhappy with the unsightliness of your receding gums? Are you experiencing discomfort or sensitivity due to gum recession? If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the questions above, the Chao Pinhole Procedure is your solution.

This procedure is the best alternative to all other gum surgeries. It is a scalpel free, suture free, graft free, and nearly pain-free experience towards improving gum recession. In addition, the minimally invasive nature of the procedure allows for a speedy recovery and presents immediate results.


How is the Chao Pinhole Procedure performed? Let us explain.

A pin-like instrument is used to puncture a small hole into the gums above the teeth, allowing the gum tissue to be loosened. The gums are then gently placed over all exposed areas of teeth. Once collagen is injected through the pin-sized holes, the gums are fastened into place. Our patient gets to leave our office readily equipped with a nice, healthy looking gum line and a confident smile. 


In what ways is this technique better than the standard technique for gum surgery? We have answers.

Connective Tissue Grafting is an invasive procedure where an incision is made on the roof of the patient’s mouth. The hard palate tissue is then stitched to cover the exposed areas of teeth. This procedure calls for a lengthy recovery time and the necessity of undergoing additional treatments, making the Chao Pinhole Procedure the best way to go!
