Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™

The Pinhole Surgical Technique or PST™ has been called a ‘breakthrough’ technique to treat gum recession. If you are concerned about receding gums and want to explore alternatives to a gum grafting procedure, then The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ could be the solution you’ve been looking for.


The first step is sitting down with one of our dental professionals to determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Gum Recession Process

In the past, whenever any of our patients were showing signs of receding gums, they would worry about the potential oral health risks like teeth loss. When those patients consulted with Dr. Tan, it was clear that the options, while mostly effective, were not very appealing.


The choices were:

  • long-term maintenance of the deteriorating condition
  • surgical correction with gum grafts that were excruciatingly painful
  • take no action and accept the eventual loss of those teeth.


Solutions to dental problems shouldn’t cause stress, but these often did, preventing the patient from moving forward and working to improve their condition. Dr. Tan introduced a better option to Georgian Dental® with Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation!


Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a way to rejuvenate receding gums. This procedure reduces the likelihood of tooth loss by re-establishing the height of the gum to cover any exposed root surface. There is revolutionary process that happens after the rejuvenation procedure is performed where special stem cells called mesenchymal stem cells develop and become specialized new gum cells. Dr. Tan’s applies a unique process to encourage cellular development and the resulting rejuvenated gum is thicker and more resistant to further recession. All our patients that undergo the process are amazed at how quickly they see results!


The best part of Dr. Tan’s unique process is that it is virtually painless. Every patient that experiences PST™, has reported minimal pain and very little discomfort. This technique is remarkable, especially compared to the more traditional approaches to gum graft surgery that sometimes requires two surgical sites. Patients that have undergone gum graft surgery feel a sensation of rawness and pain on the roof of their mouth. This patented process includes a series of recovery visits to encourage the highest probability of successful results.
