The Pinhole Surgical Technique The latest in gum therapy and gum rejuvenation, the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) was invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S.. This procedure is revolutionary due to it being a scalpel-free and a suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. As seen in the video, the Pinhole® procedure is minimally invasive and performed by making a small hole in the gum tissue. The procedure requires specially designed instruments to gently free the gum tissue and position it over the receded part of the tooth. With no incision or suturing required with this method, patients benefit from minimal post-operative symptoms like pain, swelling, or bleeding.
