How the Pinhole Surgical Technique works

During the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a tiny needle is used to make a small hole in your gum tissue. Through this pinhole, we use special instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue to help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.
