The Pinhole Technique: A Revolutionary Way to Correct Gum Recession

Have you heard of “The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique,” also known as “Pinhole” or “PST™” (Pinhole Surgical Technique)? Recently its been taking on a new name, too: “Lunchtime Gumlift™” because gum recession can oftentimes be performed in one hour with minimal pain, no scalpels, and no sutures.

The Chao Pinhole PST procedure is designed specifically to address gum recession. Gum recession is when your gums pull away from their normal position. This gum recession can make your teeth look longer or taller, and can sometimes be unesthetic. There are many causes for it: gum disease, brushing too hard with abrasive toothpastes, incorrect brushing techniques, use of medium or hard toothbrushes, and a bad bite (occlusal disease). The Chao Pinhole PST can address this for you.

Not only can gum recession be unesthetic, but people will sometimes develop sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages. Sometimes just touching your tooth can be bothersome. On the esthetic side, the gum recession can cause your tooth to develop a brown or yellow appearance, and if you have a crown (cap) on the tooth, you may develop a black line.

Gum recession should be taken seriously. It allows the root of your tooth to become exposed. This means that tooth decay (cavities) can form much easier, since the protective enamel is not present on the root. Furthermore, you are probably losing bone, and without stopping the process, you may continue to lose more bone. This can lead to loss of your tooth.

The standard way of repairing this problem is with a surgery where gum tissue is cut with a scalpel from the roof of your mouth and sewn into the affected area with stiches. It can be a painful process. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique” (again, also known as “PST” or “Pinhole” or “Lunchtime Gumlift™)” was developed by Dr. Chao to eliminate many of these unattractive components.

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is nothing short of amazing. In just one hour, your gum recession can be corrected with no scalpels, no harvesting of tissue from the roof of your mouth, and no sutures. You have instant results!
