No sutures or cutting. No second surgical site. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is the minimally invasive gum surgery alternative for gum recession!


Gum recession, a symptom of gum disease, can expose the root of the tooth and cause tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages. If left untreated, it can lead to loose or missing teeth.

• Minimally invasive
