Receding gums are gums that start to pull away from the teeth. This can happen for a variety of reasons: poor dental care, harsh brushing or even periodontal disease.
If you suffer from receding gums, you may experience tooth sensitivity and, worse, a build-up of bacteria that can cause disease and damage your tooth’s supporting bone structure. Of all the treatments for receding gums, PST, or the Pinhole Surgical Technique is the most advanced. Read on to learn more.
What is PST Gum Treatment?
For many years, the only way to treat receding gums was a handful of invasive treatments that often were painful and lengthy in process. Today, the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), created by Dr. Chao, D.D.S., is an advanced treatment that offers immediate results.
Dr. Milan is one of just a few other dentists who is highly trained in this intricate gum treatment. The beauty of this treatment is that it is, surprisingly, minimally invasive and quick.
Also referred to as the lunchtime gum lift, this revolutionary treatment consists of making a small entry point in the gum tissue to reposition your tissue to an ideal level. During the process, collagen strips are strategically placed to help secure the tissue until it heals itself.
Recovery from PST Gum Treatment is fast, and results can be seen right away. After the treatment, you may resume normal activity. In the six weeks following the treatment, a prescription mouthwash will be used instead of toothbrushing, as brushing can irritate the treated area. Soft foods should be eaten in the near term and discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter pain reliever.
Dr. Milan’s patients are consistently pleased with the ease of the treatment as well as how it transforms their smiles. The benefits of this treatment are that the gums are free from bleeding, pain and swelling, no incisions or stitches are necessary, and more than one tooth can be treated during your appointment.
Overall, the treatment provides fast and effective treatment that offers a healthier and more beautiful smile.
