The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession, invented by John Chao, DDS. Through a small hole made by a needle, specifically designed instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms of pain, swelling and bleeding. Most patients are surprised and grateful for the instant cosmetic improvement.
