Certified Pinhole Surgical Technique Provider
Get Back to Life
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST™ is incision and suture free. There are no visible wounds and healing is fast, so you can get back to what really matters.
Minimally invasive technique uses only microscopic pinholes.
Does not require taking donor tissue from your palate
No visible stitches that need to heal.
Heals the next day and is virtually undetectable
Performed by a trained & certified PST provider
South San Francisco Dental Care is one of only a handful of fully trained Pinhole Surgical Technique providers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
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.

Gum Grafting vs. Pinhole Surgical Technique
How Much is Pinhole Surgical Technique?
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique cost is comparable to traditional gum grafting procedures. In fact, the total cost can be less expensive because we can treat multiple teeth during a single treatment.
What are the risks?
All surgical procedures carry the risk of bleeding, discomfort, and infection. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® minimizes these risks, and you can further minimize them by choosing an outstanding doctor. Dr. Stanley Sun, who performs this procedure at our practice, is licensed by the creator of the technique.

Why patients love Dr. Stanley Sun
I am a patient of Dr. Stanley Sun and he performed gum grafting surgery on me twice. The first time was with the tunnel grafting technique and the second time was with the newer Pinhole Surgical Technique. I prefer the Pinhole Surgical Technique over tunnel grafting as the recovery time was tremendously shorter. I had it done on a Friday and was recovered by Monday. Also, my face did not swell up as much. The overall procedure went very smooth. Dr. Sun is very professional and I am pleased with his service. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his excellent work. I would definitely recommend him and the Pinhole Surgical Technique to others. Thanks again!
"Dr. Sun was amazing! I went in a little anxious and nervous, but as usual they took care of me and were very informative. I walked out a little swollen but fully able to talk and felt great! They've called me to follow up a couple of times and I have to say it's been a couple of days since the procedure and I feel completely fine with no swelling or soreness. Great work and service!
