The Lunchtime Gum Lift

What if you could rejuvenate your gums during your lunch break? A new revolutionary procedure patented by Dr. John Chao, DDS, allows you to do just that. The best part is that the procedure is minimally invasive, requires no cutting or sutures, and you can be back to work or resume your daily activities following your procedure. 

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, PST™, is a method of treating gum recession without the need for traditional gum surgery. Before the invention of the PST™, traditional gum surgery was the only method of repairing gum recession. This meant that patients had to undergo an extensive surgery in which the dentist removed healthy gum tissue from another area inside the patient’s mouth, and then suture the tissue to the area being treated. Due to the invasive nature of traditional gum surgery, patients could only have a couple of teeth treated in one visit. Recovery is reported to be painful and uncomfortable, which meant it could take months to transform the mouth.

Dr. Chao’s method does not use a scalpel and does not require any surgery. Known as the “lunchtime gum lift,” this procedure can transform your smile, and preserve your oral health for the long-term. Since gum recession increases the risk of tooth decay, tooth sensitivity, and tooth loss, it is vital to have it repaired.

Nearly half of all Americans, including teens and the elderly, experience gum recession. It can begin as a result of brushing too hard or using a toothbrush that is too rough. Also, gum disease causes significant gum recession, especially if not treated. There may be other factors related to gum recession including medications, a particular medical condition, hormone changes, or the natural aging process.

Many people simply ignore their gum recession, figuring that extensive gum surgery is the only solution or that their gums will repair themselves. However, this is not the case. Gum recession will not reverse on its own. It requires professional dental treatment. With the “lunchtime gum lift,” we can treat your gum recession without the need for surgery.

How does the lunchtime gum lift work?

  • The area being treated is made numb
  • Tiny entry points are made in the gum tissue by using a special patented instrument
  • Gum tissue is guided gently into place
  • Collagen fibers are placed under the gums to hold the tissue in place, and to facilitate healing

The procedure can be completed in as little as an hour, depending on how many teeth are being treated. You will be able to resume your normal activities the next day following the procedure with little to no discomfort.

Only certified dentists can perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Inventor of the PST™, Dr. Chao himself, personally teaches each course. Dr. Garcia and Dr. Sanchez-Garcia of Miami Designer Smiles are certified to perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique, providing patients with exceptional results.
