It is obvious that a beautiful, healthy smile includes straight, white teeth. However, did you know that your gums play an important role in both the appearance and wellness of your smile?
Your gums are the anchor that hold your teeth in place, so it is vital to ensure they are in optimum shape. However, at times, gums begin to recede, which can cause a host of issues. Fortunately, we can help.
Read on for more about an elite procedure at Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry.
PST Gum Treatment
When gums recede, not only can your tooth appear oddly shaped or your entire smile look “toothy,” it can cause pain, sensitivity and even infection when the tooth’s root becomes exposed.
Gum recession can be caused by several factors, including aggressive brushing, genetics, teeth grinding and gingivitis. If left untreated, the supportive tissue of the teeth can become damaged and eventually cause tooth loss.
In the past, surgery was the only viable option for repairing receding gums. However, Dr. Milan is an expert on an intricate gum procedure called the Pinhole Surgical Technique (or PST Gum Treatment).
As one of only several dentists trained in this procedure, Dr. Milan is pleased to help patients from near and far achieve a healthy smile through healthy gums.
This minimally invasive treatment was created by John Chao, DDS, MADG and offers a gum solution without the use of a scalpel or the need for sutures.
During the procedure, Dr. Milan makes a tiny hole in the gum with a needle. This is where he then loosens the tissue of the gum and pulls it over the portion that is receding. Not only does this correct the appearance of the gums and relieves pain, but there is also minimal bleeding and results are instant! That is why this treatment is often referred to as the lunchtime gum lift.
This breakthrough procedure has been widely covered in the media as there is nothing else of its kind available and Dr. Milan is proud to be an expert in this cutting-edge treatment.
