For many, receding gums are a concern for a variety of reasons. Gums that recede can cause teeth to become sensitive and even cause bacteria build-up, which can in turn lead to other issues. In year’s past, very little could be done for the gums once they recede aside from highly invasive measures that were painful and drawn out in process.
But today, a select few dentists including Dr. Milan, are skilled in the Pinhole Surgical Technique or PST Gum Treatment — a game changer for receding gums. Keep reading for more on this advanced procedure.
The treatment process
Whether caused by brushing too harshly, periodontal disease or even improper oral care, receding gums affects a vast amount of people. And studies indicate that it worsens with age.
The PST Gum Treatment is an intricate dental procedure that can fix receding gums nearly immediately. This treatment was created by Dr. John Chao, DDS, MAGD and is revolutionary in that it doesn’t require the use of sutures or even a scalpel.
Also known as the “lunchtime gum lift” because it is so quick, Dr. Milan creates a small hole in the gums with a needle and loosens it to pull it over the recession. Collagen strips are then positioned to secure your gum tissue until healing is complete.
The beauty of this treatment is that downtime is very minimal since there is no stitching or cutting involved and results are immediate. Following your PST Gum Treatment, you may resume normal activity. Dr. Milan will provide a prescription mouthwash to use, as you will need to refrain from brushing as the gums heal. The results are long lasting and natural looking, and your gums won’t be swollen or even bleed.
