Pinhole Gum Rejuvination
Several months ago, King 5 news aired a segment about a new treatment for receding gums. Although I did not see the original broadcast, several of our patients asked about the technique. I watched the segment on the King 5 Health Link website and found it very interesting. Dr. John Chao of Alhambra, CA developed his revolutionary “Pinhole Surgical Technique” many years ago and has reported on the remarkable results in published case studies from the mid 2000’s. After reviewing all of the studies, reports, and instructional videos, it seemed to be the best alternative to gum grafting I have encountered. On our website, under services, there are two representative case photo studies of before and after gum grafting procedure in our office. Our results have been excellent success since 2000 for our patients.
The Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure appears to offer that same success with more comfortable and faster healing for the patient as well as no sutures and shorter time in the dental chair. My recent training with Dr. John Chao, December 13 & 14, 2013 allowed me to join an elite group of the first 120 dentists in the world to offer this unique, remarkable solution to receding gums to our Olympia and surrounding area friends. Thank you for asking about it.
