If you have been diagnosed with receding gums or are showing signs of gum recession, your doctor may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ to restore your beautiful smile. This is an incision-free procedure that involves making a very small hole and special instruments to loosen the gum tissue and move it over the areas with gum recession. Many patients that undergo this procedure are surprised how simple and minimally invasive the entire process is, and PST™ may be just what you need to take care of receding gums and restore your smile.
Treating Gum Recession with the Pinhole Surgical Technique
The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ was invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. and has been deemed a ‘breakthrough’ technique for gum recession and treatment options for receding gums.
Gum recession is just one of the signs of gum disease, but can also be caused by using the wrong tooth brushing technique or as a side effect of certain medications that increase the risk of periodontal disease. Traditional gum surgery and some orthodontic treatments can also cause gum recession because healthy tissue has to be removed to eradicate the infection. The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ may be an attractive alternative to gum grafting because it is a non-invasive procedure. Unlike gum grafting procedures, there is no cutting of the gum tissue involved.

Our patients opinions
It’s always the word of mouth that’sthe best advice.
Here are some of our…
" First impression, polite and friendly. Second impression, very professional and thorough. The doctor explained my treatment plan and asked if I had any questions.. I did not as he was very clear as to what I should expect. A very good experience and glad that my dentist of 30 plus years referred me to Dr. Gutt.
A week post op follow up after gum graft this morning. Donor site sutures removed and new gums are perfect. Next week the new tissue site will be free of sutures.. very painless. Highly recommend his practice.
81 days after surgery and just left my final follow-up. New gums look great. Doctor reiterated flossing and brushing techniques to keep them healthy.. Dr Gutt is a very talented surgeon "
"Dr. Gutt is kind, patient and thorough. He took his time explaining to me what needed to be done to help repair my gums. He didn't try to sell me expensive procedures or treatments but instead focused on the basics like dental cleanings. I definitely just found a great periodontist in Miami Beach! "
" Dr. Gutt and his entire office team are not only among the most qualified and best trained professionals in their specialized field of periodontics but they are also genuinely interested and caring for their patients. Their professionalism, their expertise and their caring for patients of the office are evident from beginning to end. In my opinion, Dr. Gutt and his team are the very best."
