The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique was developed as a treatment for gum recession. Using specially designed instruments, our dentist loosens the gum tissue and guides it over the areas where the gums have receded. Most patients are pleasantly surprised to discover that not only their oral health improves, but also their improvement.
