Learn about Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) with San Francisco, CA dentistPatients seeking receding gums treatment due to periodontal disease and other conditions who live in the area of San Francisco, CA are welcome to learn about the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique solution with our dedicated dental professional, Dr. Leo Arellano.
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a specialized, patented treatment for gum recession that was invented by Dr. John Chao. For patients who have gum recession, most may ask about gum grafting. However, this alternative treatment provides a solution that is suture-free and scalpel-free, ensuring a more pleasant experience, faster healing, and amazing results!
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a procedure that is performed differently than a traditional gum graft. A small hole is made in the gum tissue, and then specialized instruments designed and patented by Dr. John Chao are used to loosen the gum tissue before guiding it carefully over the area of recession. The entire procedure is done quickly and easily in our office without incision and suturing. The procedure provides cosmetic enhancement of the smile with minimal post-operative concerns such as swelling, discomfort, and bleeding.
