National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® Month was created to increase public awareness of receding gums and the Pinhole® treatment.

National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® Month launches November 2018 to increase public awareness of receding gums and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®, the minimally invasive treatment to reverse gum recession. Also known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® or simply Pinhole®, this breakthrough technique is changing the way dentists are treating receding gums while making it easier for patients to have needed treatment. National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® Month is now listed in the website of the National Day Archives: http://www.nationaldayarchives.com/day/national-pinhole-gum-rejuvenation-month.

A national “Ask Your Dentist About Pinhole®” campaign has also been launched with a new website: http://www.askyourdentistaboutpinhole.com.

The website provides useful information on gum recession and shows how Pinhole® is done. The website also features a “Find A Dentist” service.

“Receding gums are unattractive, can cause tooth sensitivity to cold and may increase the risk of other dental issues,” says Dr. John Chao, dentist, educator and inventor of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®.

“Many people don’t notice the signs of receding gums until the recession is moderate to severe,” says Dr. Chao. “Often, the first symptom is a sharp pain when biting into something cold or drinking something hot. This hypersensitivity occurs because the roots of the teeth are no longer properly protected by the gums. Over time, the sensitivity can worsen and the pain may be triggered by sweet, spicy or sour foods as well.”

“The need for an easier, less painful treatment for gum recession motivated me to invent Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®,” says Dr. Chao. “Pinhole® is scalpel free, suture free and graft free. The entire procedure is done through small pinholes made in the gums.”

Using specially designed dental instruments designed and patented by Dr. Chao, dentists guide the patient’s receded gums down to improve root coverage in a process that takes just minutes per tooth. “The pinholes heal quickly and most patients report little or no pain and require minimal or no post-op downtime,” says Dr. Chao.

As of November 2018 Dr. Chao has personally trained over 3,100 doctors from around the world at ongoing bimonthly training seminars held at the Pinhole® Academy in Alhambra, CA.
