If you suffer from gum recession, call us today at 512-352-5577 to schedule your appointment.
What is the Pinhole® Surgical Technique?
Pioneered by Dr. John Chao in 2012, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a breakthrough medical procedure that serves as a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional gum recession surgeries. Dr. Falke of Taylor Dental Associates is adept at performing this technique for the benefit of patients suffering from gum recession.
In two treatments of about two hours each (depending on the severity of the case), Dr. Falke will correct gum recession by creating tiny holes in the gums through which special tools can be inserted to adjust the gum line. There are no scalpels or stitches involved. With the aid of collagen, gums will once again cover exposed roots, restoring your smile and protecting your oral health. All you have to do is call Taylor Dental Associates today at 512-352-5577 to schedule your appointment and get started.
BENEFITS OF PINHOLE® SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
Traditional gum grafting surgery is an invasive and painful procedure requiring extensive healing time. The advanced Pinhole® Surgical Technique offered by Taylor Dental Associates provides a minimally-invasive alternative with a wide variety of benefits. First and foremost, the procedure is far less damaging to surrounding tissue, meaning patients will suffer less pain and downtime.
Not only will you enjoy a speedy recovery, but you’ll see immediate and lasting results. According to a 33-month study by Dr. Chao, the Pinhole® Surgical Technique is on par with the highest success rates of traditional procedures, at 90% success, while providing additional benefits such as reduced pain, healing time, and damage to surrounding tissue.
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique can rejuvenate your smile by helping to rebuild gum tissue and restore optimal oral health. Patients will see immediate improvement to appearance following the procedure and enjoy protection against bacteria that might otherwise infiltrate exposed roots and eventually get into the bloodstream.

WHO SHOULD HAVE THE PINHOLE® SURGICAL TECHNIQUE?
Receding gums occur when the gum tissue retracts, leaving roots exposed and open to infection. The condition is commonly caused by genetics, misaligned teeth, bruxism (teeth grinding), overly aggressive oral care (brushing and flossing), or advanced gum disease. When you suffer from gum recession, proper dental care from the trained and caring professionals at Taylor Dental Associates is the answer.
We proudly provide every patient with comprehensive care and advanced dentistry procedures to ensure a positive, pain-free experience, speedy recovery, and successful outcomes. Our office on N Main Street is currently the only location where residents of Taylor, TX can receive the advanced Pinhole® Surgical Technique, and we also offer assistance for other dental concerns like gingivitis and periodontal disease.
