Pinhole Surgical Technique

Pinhole Surgical Technique™

If you have gum recession, Dr. Browning may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to restore your healthy smile. With no cutting, no stitches, and no second surgical site, PST™ is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum recession surgery.

PST™ was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao. This breakthrough technique involves Dr. Browning making a pinhole opening in your gum tissue, through which he uses special instruments to loosen and reposition the gum tissue. This requires no cutting and no stitches. Patients may return to their normal routine the very same day with immediate results.

The chief benefits are

  • Several teeth can be treated in one appointment
  • No cutting or stitches
  • Less healing and recovery time
  • Corrects receding gums without traditional gum grafting surgery
  • Minimal bleeding and minor to no discomfort

If you are seeking treatment for receding gums, maybe the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is right for you. Call Dr. Browning to schedule your consultation.
