New Alternative To Gum Grafting To Be Featured On The Dr. Steve Show

Dr. John Chao says Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ is a simpler and easier way to treat receding gums.

Online PR News – 10-September-2013 – New York, NY – New York, NY - Dentist, educator and inventor John Chao. DDS appears on the Dr. Steve Show this week with Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, also known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a minimally invasive treatment for receding gums without cutting, sutures or downtime. The show airs Sunday, Sept. 15th at 6:00 p.m. on WPIX 11 in New York City and will be shown on other dates and times in selected cities across the country, says Dr. Chao.

“I invented the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ (PST) to gently guide receding gums back into their proper place without gum grafting,” says Dr. Chao. “Rather than cutting and grafting gum tissue, PST takes just a few minutes per tooth treated and up to ten teeth can be treated within an hour. There is virtually no pain and no downtime,” he says.

“In August, the first group of dentists and periodontists from across the country visited Los Angeles to receive training in the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™,” says Dr. Chao, who practices in Alhambra, CA. “One dentist came all the way from Spain to attend the course,” he says.

These professionals who have been trained by Dr. Chao in PST can now offer what many are calling the best alternative to gum grafting that has been developed. “All of the attendees expressed enthusiasm for PST,” says Dr. Chao. “Our next two courses are nearly full as more professionals seek to be trained in PST to benefit their patients,” he says.

For more information on the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ or to locate a dentist or periodontist who has been trained in PST visit or call 888-603-2953.
