You think of yourself as being a happy person, but you are most unhappy with your smile. Your gums have receded, leaving you with an odd-looking smile that shows a little too much of your teeth and roots. You may be considering gum grafting to restore the look of a healthy smile, but there is a minimally invasive alternative. Dr. Parviz Roshanzamir, a dentist with Wall Centre Dental in Vancouver, is highly skilled in restoring gum recession using the innovative Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.  
Gum Recession 
Natural aging and abrasive toothbrushes can all cause gums to recede beyond the normal gum line. This recession exposes the root structure of your teeth and leaves them open to decay that can be hard to treat and even lead to tooth loss. Traditional treatment of recession requires gum grafting of either donor or soft tissue, sutured in place, where it joins existing tissue.  
With PST, your dentist uses a needle to create a tiny hole in your gum tissue. Next, he uses the hole to access and loosen tissue, expanding it and sliding it over to cover the exposed tooth roots. There is no cutting, no sutures, and the entire process takes a single visit to the dentist.  
Benefits of PST™
Dental patients receive a variety of benefits from the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, including less post-operative pain and discomfort and a much quicker recovery period. Traditional grafting includes removing tissue from the patient’s palate; with PST™, this is no longer needed. Recovery time from grafting decreases from several days to a single day, and best of all, patients enjoy natural-looking, long-lasting results.  
Following treatment, you can care for your gums and teeth with brushing and flossing, as well as twice-yearly cleanings by a dental professional.
