The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Procedure
Developed by John Chao, D.D.S., Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PGR) is the latest in high-tech and non-surgical gum recession treatments. Dr. Blodgett learned the technique from Dr. Chao himself! You may also know it as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). PGR/PST is the only way to treat gum recession without a scalpel and stitches.
Here’s how it works:
- A nearly invisible hole is made in your gum tissue with a special tool
- Dr. Blodgett gently repositions your gums over the exposed tooth root
“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!”

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation FAQ
What is gum recession?
Gum recession occurs when your gum line retreats, pulling away from your teeth. This can be caused by:
- Gum disease like gingivitis or periodontitis
- Your body’s natural aging process
- Overly aggressive flossing and brushing
When your gums recede, the root of the tooth becomes exposed. You may start to experience:
- Tooth decay
- Sensitive teeth
- Advanced gum disease
- Many other serious dental and whole-body health issues.
Healthy gums are needed to have a healthy body. You must treat gum recession to achieve lasting dental wellness.
What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and how does it differ from other gum recession treatments?
PGR is a minimally-invasive gum recession treatment near Salem. All of the tools and techniques used to perform the procedure were created by Dr. John Chao, who personally taught Dr. Blodgett, Oregon’s most trusted gum recession expert.
Traditional gum recession treatments require the use of donor tissue or tissue grafts to restore your gum line. This soft tissue would then be sutured in place and become part of your own natural gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results and a much better patient experience are possible with the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure.
Is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation covered by insurance in Salem?
You may find that your dental insurance plans will cover part or all of the cost of PGR. Our front office staff can help you better understand your policy and benefits. Call (503) 285-3620 to learn more. Dr. Blodgett has helped hundreds of patients from around Oregon, including Salem, reverse gum recession.
