Why Choose Traditional Gum Grafting When PST™ Is Available?

Traditionally, gum grafting surgeries are used to solve the problem of gum recession, but they have some serious drawbacks. The first is that they require a lot of surgical cutting, which causes trauma to the soft tissues of the mouth. The second is that because of the cuts, the gums have to be sutured after the procedure is finished. This leads to the third disadvantage: the healing takes a while, during which time the gums are swollen, may be discolored and look unnatural.

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) has changed the face of gum grafting by offering a minimally invasive solution to traditional gum grafting. During the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, Dr. Richard Amato will make a small hole in the gums. Through that hole, he will gently and carefully use specialized instruments to move the gums and connective tissues into a more natural placement. The end result? An immediate change in the look of your gums without cutting or stitches!
