Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation


Dr. Stephanie Trottnow has been trained in the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, also known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation.  It is a procedure invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S.  It is a scalpel-free, graft-free, suture-free, minimally invasive procedure for correcting gum recession and saving teeth. 


Through a tiny hole made by a needle, specially designed instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth.  Since there is no stitching or cutting, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms which could include pain, swelling and/or bleeding. 


Patients are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.  Most patients are able to resume light normal activities within 24-48 hours after treatment.
