Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

A Minimally-Invasive Treatment with Instant Results!

If you have receding gums, you’re not alone! Over 50% of the U.S. population suffers from gum disease and receding gums. Traditional treatments for receding gums are generally painful and require multiple treatments before you’ll see any results.

Today, however, there’s a more effective, minimally-invasive way to treat receding gums.


The Advantages of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Therapy


Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PGR™), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is an incision-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. Dr. Kelly Blodgett was the first dentist in the Pacific Northwest (and one of the first 20 dentists in the world!) licensed to perform PGR™.

Traditional gum surgery involves grafting soft tissue from somewhere else on your body and suturing it in place along your gumline. The procedure usually results in a long recovery and a very sore mouth.

With Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, you no longer have to choose between living with the discomfort caused by gum recession and painful oral surgery.


  Traditional Oral Surgery Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
Minimally-Invasive? Scalpels and stitches required.

Traditional therapy options are invasive and require grafting tissue from elsewhere on your body.

No incisions and no stitches.

Specially designed instruments gently loosen gum tissue and guide it into place over the exposed root of your teeth.

 Instant Results? Long healing times and multiple treatments often needed.

Scalpel-based gum recession treatments may require up to 6-weeks of recovery time. Your diet must be significantly modified.

Less soreness and immediate cosmetic improvements.

Most of our patients only take Advil after the Pinhole procedure and feel fine the next day. You are able to eat most foods after the first 24 hours of healing.

 Patient Satisfaction? Oral surgery is painful and inconvenient.

Many people avoid treating their receding gums simply because the treatment is so painful and invasive.

Patients report little pain, no bleeding & love the results!

The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry published a study proving the effectiveness of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation therapy.

What is Gum Recession?


Gum recession refers to a loss of gum tissue around your teeth. When the roots of your teeth are exposed, they become extremely sensitive to hot, cold, sweet or acidic foods. In fact, living with tooth recession can lead to chronic tooth sensitivity and make your teeth more prone to erosion and decay.

Gum recession can be caused by:

• Periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis)
• The natural aging process
• Negative consequences of traditional orthodontic treatment
• Brushing your teeth too hard
• Misaligned bite

If you’re suffering from gum recession, Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation therapy (PGR™) is the answer you’ve been looking for.
