Are Receding Gums Aging Your Smile?
Restore Gum Health Instantly with the Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™
Gum recession is commonly associated with periodontal disease. Did you know that 30% of us are predisposed to oral infection, even with impeccable oral care? Gums infected by the bacteria slowly erode, seemingly shrinking down the length of your teeth and while receding gums may seem like a cosmetic issue, they should be corrected as soon as possible to avoid the following:
- Chronic inflammation of the gum tissue
- Tooth sensitivity
- Greater risk of disease and decay due to increased exposure of your tooth surface
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Pain and discomfort
Quickly and Conveniently Restore Gum Health with the Pinhole Surgical Technique™
Dr. Sunny Drake offers the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to return your smile to its earlier beauty in a single visit. With PST™ a small opening is created in the gum tissue surrounding your affected tooth. A special dental tool is then used to loosen the connective tissue, allowing Dr. Drake to gently re-position the gum line without scalpels or stitches. Benefits of PST™ include:
- Correct receding gums in one treatment
- Treats multiple areas
- No incisions
- Faster recovery
- Little to no downtime
- No bleeding or inflammation
- Immediately more attractive smile
Pinhole Surgical Technique™ vs. Gum Grafting
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ offers an alternative to traditional receding gums treatment, like gum grafting. While gum grafting is a safe and effective technique, PST™ provides you with a better experience:
- Convenience: PST™ can be performed on any number of teeth in a single visit but gum grafting may require additional surgeries.
- Comfort: Gum grafting necessitates no less than two surgical sites, one for collection of tissue and the treatment site. PST™ is performed without scalpels.
- Recovery: After PST™, you will have minimal risk of bleeding, inflammation, or discomfort. Gum grafting surgery, however, may require some downtime while the surgical and donor sites heal.
