Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™
Receding gums are an issue for dental patients of all ages, and their cause can vary greatly. In fact, many people may not realize how easy it can be to unintentionally affect the healthiness of their gums.
For instance, simply brushing your teeth incorrectly or clenching them during sleep can lead to gum recession. On the other hand, receding gums can be a strong indication of a more serious underlying issue, such as progressive periodontal disease or insufficient long-term care of the mouth. That is why it is essential for anyone with receding gums in Glendale, AZ to contact Dr. Steven Chang right away.
Dr. Chang utilizes a minimally-invasive pinhole gum rejuvenation methodology known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to restore and repair the gums of his patients. Unlike traditional gum graft surgery, PST™ involves only one small pinhole created in the gum tissue, which means downtime is minimalized for patients. Additionally, PST™’s pinhole gum rejuvenation offers advantages that include:
• Much less of the swelling and pain associated with oral surgery.
• No need for sutures to be used, even when multiple teeth and gums are treated during one office visit.
• Speedier recovery time for patients.
• Instantaneous cosmetic results that can be enjoyed the same day that PST™ is done.
