Pinhole Surgery Scottsdale - Reverse Gum Recession​

One of the distinguishing services provided by Dr. Roya Zojaji is the Pinhole Surgical Technique.   Residents of Scottsdale and surrounding communities will be glad to know that Dr. Zojaji is one of the few periodontists in the state of Arizona certified to offer this minimally invasive treatment option to reverse gingival recession.

 

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.

This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
