If the gums wear away or recede for any reason, you may be at a higher risk of developing tooth sensitivity, cavities below the natural gum line and other oral health problems. Gum recession can also take away from the beauty of your smile. Receding gums are one of the side effects of periodontal disease, but may also occur for several other reasons including:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Teeth grinding or clenching habits
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned bite
  • Aggressive tooth brushing habits
  • Insufficient preventive care
  • Hormonal fluctuations

Benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

The Pinhole Surgical Technique offers numerous benefits to the patient, including:

  • Minimally invasive treatment option
  • Corrects receding gums without incisions
  • Fast healing time
  • Can treat multiple teeth in a single visit
  • No bleeding or swelling associated with gum surgery
  • Provides immediate cosmetic benefits
  • Helps patients achieve a healthier and attractive smile

How We Perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique

The PST™ treatment is relatively simple because there are no incisions or stitches involved. Dr. Eastman uses special instruments to make a tiny hole in the gums and loosens the gum tissue to move it over the areas with gum recession. The gums will heal in this new position very quickly and you will notice results immediately.

Dr. Eastman incorporates the latest techniques in reconstructive periodontics, tissue engineering, dental implants placement and was among the first group of dentists in the U.S. trained in computer guided implant surgery.
