Chao Pinhole<sup>®</sup> Surgical Technique for Receded Gums

Breakthrough Minimally Invasive and Fast Treatment for Gum Recession

Chao Pinhole<sup>®</sup> Surgical Technique for Receded GumsNot only do receding gums make you look old, it is vital that they be corrected if you are to have a healthy mouth. Gum recession causes the roots of teeth to be exposed, leaving them open to decay and damage. It also leaves your gum tissues subject to infection and disease.

Traditional gum recession treatment requires surgical procedures that use incisions to remove a piece of healthy tissue from the roof of your mouth, and further incisions to graft it into the area of recession. This is followed by sutures, a long healing time and sometimes considerable discomfort.

Some of our patients can now take advantage of an alternative minimally invasive treatment for gum recession known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgery Technique (PST). With PST, receding gums can be effectively repaired without the cutting, grafting, suturing and post-operative discomfort that is part of traditional surgery. Dr. Rubino is one of only a handful of dentists in the United States that is trained and licensed to deliver this breakthrough procedure.

A faster and more comfortable procedure

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique makes it possible for Dr. Rubino to treat up to 14 teeth at one time. Treatment is performed using a local anesthetic, and the entire procedure can be completed in about two hours. Since there is no cutting, grafting or suturing needed, there is virtually no pain and minimal downtime. In fact, most patients are back to their regular activities the next day.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique was developed by Dr. John Chao in 2006. It has been tested over many years and has been shown to uniformly produce stable and long-lasting results.

How the Pinhole Surgical Procedure Works

Before starting the procedure, Dr. Rubino cleans and prepares the affected teeth, after which the gum is numbed with a local anesthetic. He then makes an entry point about the size of a pinhole in the gum tissue over the affected teeth. He places a special dental instrument through this pinhole and gently frees the gum tissue so it can be repositioned. Once free, he guides the gums over the roots of the affected teeth and restores a natural-looking and healthy gum line.

Dr. Rubino then uses a small angled instrument to insert collagen strips through the entry point and place them inside the gums. This stabilizes the gums in position and assists healing.
