Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation in downtown Denver, Colorado: The Lunchtime Gum Lift
For decades, severe cases of gum recession have been treated with the traditional cut & stitch gum grafting method, a nasty procedure that tends to leave patients in significant pain for weeks after the surgery. Barotz Dental is delighted to announce the introduction of a brand new, revolutionary gum recession treatment. The Pinhole Surgical Technique now offers patients with gum recession a noninvasive and extremely effective solution for correcting this problem. In certain instances in the past, Dr. Barotz has been reticent to recommend correcting severe cases of gum recession because of the painful ordeal it puts patients through. Thanks to the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we are enthusiastically recommending gum recession correction since it can be achieved in the modern, noninvasive manner that patients of Barotz Dental have come to expect over the last 35 years.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique, is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole, specially designed instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Rather than cutting out a piece of the palate to stitch to the area of recession, this elegant procedure uses a tiny pinhole to adjust the gum line and then rejuvenates the gums with the insertion of collagen. Because there are no scalpels, incisions, and sutures, patients sustain minimal pain and enjoy a rapid recovery, and many report feeling just fine the day after surgery. Most patients are also pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
Why is the Pinhole Technique so Revolutionary?
Traditionally, the recommended treatment for severe cases of gum recession was the cut and stitch grafting surgery, a gruesome and painful procedure that usually leaves patients in a state of misery during the (approximately) two week recovery period. Because the PST does not involve a scalpel and can rejuvenate the gums through a tiny pinhole, the body isn’t required to accomplish nearly the same amount of healing. It’s not the grafting in the area of recession that makes the cut and stitch surgery so awful. The real pain is endured in the area where healthy gum tissue has been removed from the palate: it is this excision that tends to cause two plus weeks of intense and unrelenting pain from the neck up. Not only can the PST help you avoid the misery of traditional gum grafting, it will yield superior results. More effective gum recession treatment, less time at the dentist, WAY less pain, and shorter recovery times? That’s a revolution.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is gum recession?
Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.
Why should gum recession be taken seriously?
When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
What is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is scalpel and suture free.
All of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique were created by Dr. John Chao.
How does Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique differ from traditional gum grafting?
Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
How is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique performed?
During the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient's existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure. There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
What are the benefits of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?
The benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are many:
- Less Discomfort for the patient after treatment.
- Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting.
- No need for uncomfortable sutures.
- No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools.
- No need to take donor tissue from the patients palate.
- Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results.
