About Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PGR)

John Chao, D.D.S. developed the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure— revolutionizing how gum recession is treated. Dr. Blodgett was trained personally by Dr. Chao, learning this incredible procedure that few dentists even know about.

Today, the procedure is also known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). It is the only way to treat gum recession without scalpels and stitches. There’s no painful recovery and results are immediate.

At his Portland office, Dr. Blodgett treats gum recession by:

  1. Making a nearly invisible hole in your gum tissue
  2. Gently repositioning your gums using high-tech tools
  3. That’s it— your smile will look better and your gum health will improve immediately

“My husband and I have gone to Blodgett Dental Care for 4 years. The care, skill, and attention to health and aesthetics is amazing. The staff is friendly and supportive, which also reflects highly on Dr. Blodgett. After less then satisfactory experiences with other dentists, Dr. Blodgett has succeeded in giving my husband a wonderful new smile. We are so pleased!”

– Jan J.

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation FAQ

What is gum recession?

Gum recession occurs gum line retreats, pulling away from your teeth. Causes include:

  • Gum diseases, including gingivitis or periodontitis
  • Genetics and the natural aging process
  • Overly aggressive and rough brushing and flossing

When gums recede, the root of the tooth is exposed. You’ll be at increased risk of tooth decay, overly sensitive teeth, serious gum disease, and other troubling dental health issues.

Healthy gums are necessary to have a healthy mouth and body. You must treat your gum recession to achieve lasting dental wellness and whole body health.


What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and how does it differ from other gum recession treatments?

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally-invasive way to reverse gum recession near Eugene. All of the instruments and techniques used to perform PST were created by Dr. John Chao, who personally taught Dr. Blodgett, Oregon’s most trusted gum disease expert.

Traditional gum rejuvenation treatments require the use of donor tissue or tissue grafts to restore missing gum tissue. This soft tissue would then be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with a better overall patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.

You may find that your dental insurance plans will cover part or all of the cost of the procedure. Dr. Blodgett’s office staff can help you better understand your policy and benefits.
