Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PGR) vs. Traditional Gum Recession Surgery

Minimally Invasive & Low Pain
PGR is a scalpel free and suture free procedure offered in our calming, relaxing atmosphere. You’ll look and feel better fast!
Heals Slowly
Many surgical gum recession treatments require days or even weeks to heal.
Heals Quickly. Minimal Recovery

Immediate Results
One treatment is enough to see immediate results and improvements in your gum line.

Did You Know:

Gum recession can lead to many undesirable health effects, including loose teeth, sensitive teeth, or tooth loss. Your teeth may also appear unnaturally long. Over time, untreated gum recession can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and other health problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is gum recession and why does it happen?

Gum recession is the loss of gum tissue on the gumline. Gum recession can be caused by:

  • Incorrect brushing technique
  • Hormonal changes
  • Tobacco use
  • Tooth grinding
  • Misaligned bite

When gums recede, a portion of the tooth’s root is exposed, providing a new target for tooth decay and bacteria growth.


What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and how does it differ from other gum recession treatments?

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally-invasive gum recession treatment. Traditional gum recession treatments require the use of soft tissue grafts to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and connect with existing gum tissue during healing.

Better results and a better experience can be achieved thanks to the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.


Is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation covered by insurance?

Some dental insurance plans cover part or all of the cost of your gum recession treatment (also sometimes called the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation or Lunchtime Gum Lift). The front office staff at Green Dentistry will help you understand your benefits.
