Evansville Dentist – What is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive pain free option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is scalpel and suture free. The benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are many:

• Less patient discomfort
• Faster patient recovery
• No sutures
• No scalpels or other invasive surgical tools
• No tissue removed from the patient’s palate
• Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST) is the pain free way to treat gum recession. Dr. Max Lingo uses this state of the art, minimally invasive procedure that is scalpel-free and suture-free to treat gum recession. Using instruments specially designed for PST, Dr. Max Lingo makes a tiny opening (the size of a pin, hence the name “pinhole”) in the gum above the teeth affected by the gum recession and the patient’s existing healthy gum tissue is delicately pushed into place, covering the exposed part of the tooth. Dr. Max Lingo is proud to offer this pain free procedure in his Evansville Dental Office to treat gum recession.

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® offers an exciting breakthrough in the treatment of gum recession. Traditionally, gum recession is treated with periodontal grafting which can cause the patient great discomfort. PST is a restorative based treatment that produces as-good or better results than traditional gum grafting without the discomfort and faster recovery.

If you suffer from receding gums due to periodontal disease and would like to explore how this minimally invasive technique can benefit you, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lingo.

Their Staff

Sam, Dr. Lingo’s son, graduated cum laude from the University of Southern Indiana in 2005, earned an MBA in 2008 from the University of North Florida, and has been a part of our practice since he was 16. As a teenager, he learned to assist with dental tooth charting using the “old school” red and blue pencil method, years before computers were used in dental operatories. Having a strong background in dental assisting, Sam understands the clinical side of dentistry; he has the ability to see and explain treatment in a logical way that is easy for patients to understand. Sam began learning about practice management when he was a teenager and was instrumental in setting up our first computer. Over the years, he has proved himself invaluable as our technology expert. Sam administrates the day to day operations and business of our practice. He has extensive knowledge of the insurance industry and works hard to help our patients maximize their insurance plan benefits. Sam is especially empathetic to patients who have dental fear and request sedation. He understands fear is a road block to optimal dental health and goes above and beyond to ensure our patients’ comfort and care and will forfeit his own lunch time if needed to drive a sedated patient home following a procedure. When not working, Sam enjoys cooking, spoiling his two dogs Jasmine and Georgia, traveling and attending Miami Hurricane football and UK basketball games.
