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.
Traditional Gum Grafting Is Intimidating
Gum grafting is more invasive than some people may be comfortable with. This procedure typically has to be done under general anesthesia. The dentist will need to make a small incision, remove the inflamed tissue and suture the opening. Recovery generally takes about six weeks with this treatment.
PST® Comes With Many Advantages
The main reason why patients ask about PST® is that it doesn’t require your dentist to actually remove any gum tissues. Instead, our dentist will create extremely small holes in the tissue to loosen it. It then gets moved over the area where recession has occurred. With this procedure, the gum tissue heals much more quickly.
The actual time you will spend in the dentist’s chair decreases substantially. You will also enjoy a shorter recovery period, and overall, there will be less discomfort associated with the treatment. Additionally, since less pain comes with PST®, our dentist can work on several areas in one sitting instead of stretching out the appointments.
