A dental practice that provides Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique

Patients who have experienced gum recession due to the natural aging process, aggressive brushing, or periodontal disease may find that it leaves much of the natural tooth exposed. This exposed enamel is then much more susceptible to problems such as tooth decay. It can also impact the smile’s appearance, especially if the teeth appear much longer and not in balance with the rest of the teeth. To address this, most patients will learn about solutions such as gum grafting. Sandy, Utah dentists at Taylor Dental Care may recommend a unique technique instead called the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique.

What is the Chao pinhole gum rejuvenation technique?

Sometimes referred to as PST, the Chao pinhole surgical and rejuvenation technique is a less invasive alternative to grafting for patients who need to treat gum recession. Unlike more traditional gum grafting services, the Chao pinhole surgical technique does not require sutures and scalpels. This specialized technique, created by a dentist named Dr. John Chao, uses a small hole in the existing gum tissue to loosen the tissues and expand the gum line. That eliminates the need for actually grafting of gum tissue and utilizes the patient’s existing tissue to achieve the same results.

What are the benefits of the Chao PST?

There are several advantages to using this method of treatment for gum recession. This technique:

  • Ensures less discomfort for the patient
  • Provides faster recovery when compared to traditional gum grafting
  • Does not require donor tissue
  • Eliminates invasive surgical and dental tools
  • Does not require stitches
  • Provides natural-looking, long-lasting results
