Receding gums are often a symptom of periodontal disease. Gum recession typically occurs due to genetics, hormonal changes, smoking tobacco, aggressive brushing or hardened buildup of plaque. Although you should be able to see a change in the appearance of your gum line, you will also notice a difference due to loose teeth, pain on the gum line, red gum tissue and constant bleeding. You will need to schedule an appointment at the office of Dr. Parviz Roshanzamir to reverse the effects through the Chao Pinhole® SurgicalTechnique.Read More

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.
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. Make an appointment to speak with Dr. Roshanzamir about this amazing procedure and whether it is right for treating your gum recession by contacting our office in Vancouver, BC.

It is essential that you treat gum disease early to avoid some of the consequences, including tooth decay and lost teeth. The traditional treatment incorporates something known as scaling and root planning, or SRP. This cleans the surface of the teeth and any exposed roots that occur due to the recession of the gums. It also removes any buildup of bacteria, tartar and plaque to promote healthy tissue growth. In more severe cases, gum flap surgery is needed to expose the roots. This can be painful and take time to heal. That is why Dr. Roshanzamir at Wall Centre Dental offers laser dentistryoptions to clients, which has many benefits over traditional dentistry.Read More
