Pinhole Surgical Technique
Dr. John Chao invented the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) as an alternative to gum grafting for gum recession treatment in Wayne, NJ. This technique gains access through a pinhole opening in the gums to repair the recessed area. Traditionally, gum recession treatment involves grafting tissue from another portion of your mouth to cover the area in deficit. Tissue grafting, while effective, is invasive and can take weeks to heal. Receding gums treatment in Wayne, NJ on the other hand, does not require cutting and suturing, so post-operative discomfort and healing time are greatly reduced.
Gum recession treatment with PST™ involves first making a pinhole access to the receded area. Dr. Breiterman will then use specialized instruments to loosen the tissue and move it into its proper position. You will see an immediate cosmetic improvement and several areas can be treated at the same time, saving you the inconvenience of multiple appointments.
Patients from Franklin Lakes, Kinnelon, Montville, Oakland, Pompton Lakes with receding gums in Wayne, NJ are encouraged to schedule a PST™ consultation appointment today!
