Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®)
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is a gum recession treatment, which was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, D.D.S. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST® is a pain-free, scalpel-free, and suture-free procedure that treats gum recession, which occurs as a result of periodontal diseases, teeth grinding habits, and natural aging. Dr. Steffany Mohan received special training from Dr. John Chao on this technique.
The complete procedure of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) treatment does not require incision, and hence patients can expect no issues post-operation. Symptoms like pain, swelling, and bleeding are least expected with this technique. This treatment procedure includes making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. After which, specially designed instruments are used to loosen tissues and then are guided over the receded part of the tooth. The tools and techniques used in Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) are designed and created by Dr. John Chao himself.
The traditional gum recession treatments involved either the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts for rebuilding the gumline. While, the PST® involves the adjustment of the existing tissue only, this ensures effective results with a better patient experience. Most of the patients who received the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique treatment were pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement. These specially designed tools are used to expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.
