Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™

Get your smile back!
No Grafting - No Incisions - No Sutures - Instant Results


If you have been diagnosed with receding gums or are showing signs of gum recession, Dr. Lowy and Dr. Nelson may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ to restore your beautiful smile. This is an incision-free procedure that involves making a very small hole and special instruments to loosen the gum tissue and move it over the areas with gum recession. Many patients that undergo this procedure are surprised how simple and minimally invasive the entire process is, and PST™ may be just what you need to take care of receding gums and restore your smile.

Treating Gum Recession with The Pinhole Surgical Technique

The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ was invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. and has been deemed a ‘breakthrough’ technique for gum recession and treatment options for receding gums.

Gum recession is just one of the signs of gum disease, but can also be caused by using the wrong tooth brushing technique or as a side effect of certain medications that increase the risk of periodontal disease. Traditional gum surgery and some orthodontic treatments can also cause gum recession because healthy tissue has to be removed to eradicate the infection. The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ may be an attractive alternative to gum grafting because it is a non-invasive procedure. Unlike gum grafting procedures, there is no cutting of the gum tissue involved.

Benefits of The Pinhole Surgical Technique

Some of the key benefits of PST™ include:

• Minimally invasive alternative to gum surgery
• No bleeding, swelling, or pain that is associated with gum surgery
• Immediate cosmetic benefits
• Corrects gum recession without surgery
• No incisions or sutures involved
• Fast recovery and healing time
• Multiple teeth can be treated in a single visit
• Healthier and more attractive smile

Dr Lowy:

Thanks for introducing me to the new Pinhole Surgical Technique that you performed on me to help my gum recession. For years I had put off my dentists recommendation to get the old fashioned grafting done and finally got up the courage to come and discuss the oral surgery procedure with you. When you asked if I would be interested in a new technique you practice and after researching the procedure I was happy to call you back in less then two hours to say - sign me up! I learned about the elimination of cutting and stitching with this technique which is why I hesitated on getting this done years earlier. After you completed my procedure I had virtually no pain - yes, no pain - no pain meds. 

That was it and I will be coming back now to get the rest of my recessions fixed by you. I am very happy with you and your staff and would be glad to be a reference to any of your potential patients who would like to know my experience with this new procedure. Truly remarkable and revolutionary procedure. More need to know about this....
