About Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation was invented by John Chao, D.D.S. He personally taught the procedure to Dr. Blodgett. Also known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) or PGR, it’s the only way to treat gum recession without a scalpel and stitches.

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

  1. Using an ultra-fine needle to make a nearly invisible hole in your gum tissue.
  2. Using high-tech and gentle tools to reposition your gums over the exposed tooth.

“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

How serious is gum recession?
Gum recession occurs when your gum line retreats, pulling away from your teeth. This can be caused by:

  • Gum diseases like gingivitis or periodontitis
  • The body’s natural aging process
  • Rough and aggressive flossing and brushing

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

You simply must treat gum recession in order to achieve lasting health.

What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation. How is it different from gum recession surgery?
PGR isn’t surgery. It’s a minimally-invasive treatment for reversing gum recession near Tacoma. All of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique were created by Dr. John Chao, who personally taught Dr. Blodgett, Washington and Oregon’s most-experienced gum disease dentist.

Traditional gum rejuvenation treatments use donor tissue or tissue grafts to restore your gum line. This soft tissue is sutured in place and takes time to heal properly. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.

Is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation covered by dental insurance in Tacoma?
Your insurance might cover some or all of the cost of PGR. If you’re confused about your policy, your benefits, and what might be covered, Dr. Blodgett’s office staff is here to help you. Call (503) 285-3620 to learn more. Dr. Blodgett has helped hundreds of patients from around the Northwest, including Tacoma, cure their gum recession.
