PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) is a revolutionary new and minimally invasive technique which allows Dr. Green to restore the gum line of your smile. This technique does not utilize scalpels, sutures nor donor graft tissue. Unlike traditional gum grafting procedures which relies on donor tissue from the palate, this procedure offers minimal post-operative discomfort and more instant cosmetic results. This technique may be used to treat receding gums for single or multiple teeth. A small pinhole is created and patented instruments are utilized to correct the gum position and cover the receded areas to enhance your smile while improving the health of your teeth.
Dr. Green is specialty trained to treat gum problems since 1992 and he is now pleased to offer his patients a new treatment alternative for receding gums. Dr. Green is the first Periodontist in the Lancaster County area certified in the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). Please call our office to schedule a consultation to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure or if another treatment option would be better suited for your case
