Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

At Sheppard Yorkland Dental in North York, we offer the Pinhole Surgery Technique which is a scalpel-free, suture-free solution for receding gums.


How does it work?

Gum recession breakthrough treatment also known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ and Lunchtime Gum Lift™

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.


This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.

If you experience painful gums, sensitivity to hold and cold beverages, exposed tooth roots or gaps between the top of your tooth and gums, then you may be a candidate for Pinhole Surgery.
