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.


Receding Gums Cannot Heal Themselves. They Need the Help of Dr. Steven Chang and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Dr. Chang strongly recommends that any person suffering from receding gums make an appointment with him to discuss treatment options like PST™. Gums that have already receded cannot repair themselves, and once they have begun to recede, they will typically continue to recede without medical intervention.

PST™ provides a patented, proven pinhole gum rejuvenation method to revitalize your smile without the need for invasive procedures or gum grafting. Trust Dr. Chang to partner with you as you start your journey to state that involves a happier, healthier mouth.
