Did you know that Periodontal (gum) disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults? Chao Pinhole Gum Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that can treat gum disease and help prevent further tooth loss.
This type of surgery is also called “pinhole surgical technique” or “PST.” It is named after Dr. John Chao, who developed the procedure.
The goal of Chao Pinhole Gum Surgery is to treat gum disease and improve the overall health of your gums. Gum disease is caused by plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth. This can lead to inflammation, bleeding, and receding gums.
PST can be used to treat these symptoms and to help prevent further gum disease. The surgery is minimally invasive and can be performed in one visit.
During the procedure, our dentist will make a small incision in your gums. Then, they will insert a small tool called a “pinhole” into the incision. This will allow them to gently loosen the gum tissue around your tooth.
Once the gum tissue is loosened, our dentist will be able to gently reposition it. This will help to cover the roots of your teeth and to reduce the inflammation in your gums.
After the surgery, you will need to take care of your gums. This includes brushing and flossing regularly and avoiding tobacco products. Your dentist may also recommend that you use an antibacterial mouthwash.
In conclusion, Chao Pinhole Gum Surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. The procedure can be performed in one visit with little to no discomfort, and it has a very high success rate.
