Pinhole Technique

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal postoperative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement. Dr. Ghayoumi is certified to perform Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This breakthrough treatment is also known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and Lunchtime Gum Lift.
