Pinhole Surgical Technique (P.S.T.)
This procedure is a modern, gentle technique designed to reduce pain and healing time. It involves using a 0.1 inch “pinhole” to relax gum tissue and slide it back over the teeth to reduce recession. P.S.T. doesn’t require stitches or grafts from the top of your mouth, and it produces immediate results with very few side effects. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can bring back your normal gum line and restore your confidence!
To perform this procedure, both Dr. Barry Parish and Dr. Brandy Hutchens have been thoroughly trained by its developer, Dr. John Chao.
