Minimally Invasive Treatment for Gum Recession
Receding gums treatment with the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™)
Common Causes of Gum Recession
Many patients with gum disease experience some degree of gum recession because the gums start to wear away or pull away from the tooth structure. If you have noticeable gum recession and want to restore the beauty of your smile, talk to Dr. Meghna Dassani about the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This minimally invasive alternative to gum recession surgery can restore the gum line and enhance your smile.
How the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) Works
If your gums are wearing away because you have been using the wrong tooth-brushing technique or because of the effects of gum recession, you may be a good candidate for PST™. Dr. Dassani can treat a single tooth or several teeth with this procedure, and patients undergoing treatment can enjoy immediate cosmetic results.
Benefits of PST™
This procedure is performed without any incisions or trauma to the gum tissue. It involves making tiny holes above the areas where the gums have receded and gently pulling down existing gum tissue to reshape the gum line. This technique can be an attractive alternative to gum recession surgery, which involves gum tissue grafting and suturing the tissue in place. Some of the key benefits of PST™ include:
- Fast healing and recovery time
- Restoration of the gum line with natural-looking results
- Little or no bleeding or swelling of the gums
- Immediate cosmetic benefits
- Attractive alternative to gum surgery
