Maintaining a proper oral health routine is vital to ensuring your gums are strong and not prone to receding. Activities that can help prevent gum recession are regular dental checkups, flossing, proper brushing and avoiding certain habits like smoking. If you have been diagnosed with receding gums or are showing signs of gum recession, your doctor may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ to restore your beautiful smile. Previous gum recession treatments were invasive and used grafting to rebuild the gumline. The results were positive but the treatment was painful and involved sutures and long healing times. This new technique is a game-changer; making the process more efficient, comfortable, natural-looking and with long-lasting results.
Many people dread dental procedures out of a fear that they will cause pain or the healing process will be too much of a hindrance. But with revolutionary treatments like the Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™, they don’t have to worry. This incision-free procedure involves making a very small hole and using special instruments to loosen the gum tissue. The gum tissue is then moved to the areas where the gum has receded. Many patients that undergo this procedure are surprised with how simple and minimally invasive the entire process is—you won’t even need sutures!
PST™ is a vast improvement over conventional gum grafting. It’s great for people of all ages and can help restore your gums to health.
