In order to have healthy teeth, you need healthy gums. Therefore, if you have gums that are receding, you need to go to a Tustin dentist like ours at Chu & Yang Dental to get them treated right away. Left untreated, gum recession will get worsen and eventually will cause tooth loss.
Historically, if you need gum recession treatment due to an advanced gum recession condition, the only treatment that your Tustin dentist could recommend to you was an invasive, uncomfortable surgical procedure because that was the only method available for treating advanced gum recession. Fortunately, due to many advancements in the field of modern dentistry, this is no longer the case. Now, there is a breakthrough treatment available that is minimally invasive called the Pinhole Surgical Technique. This technique offers many benefits to patients and makes dealing with advanced gum recession much more tolerable. Unlike the traditional grafting technique, the Pinhole Surgical Technique, also called PST, does not require any surgical incisions. Since the procedure is both scalpel-free and suture-free, it is much better for patients. The revolutionary technique was invented and patented by John Chao, DDS. It provides patients with numerous benefits which include: minimized patient discomfort after treatment, a faster recovery time for patients in comparison to traditional grafting, no use of uncomfortable sutures, no use of scalpels or any other invasive tools, unlike the traditional procedure, it does not require donor tissue from the patient’s palate, and it provides exceptional, natural-looking, long-lasting results. The Pinhole Surgical Technique is very helpful to patients who have dental or surgery anxiety. If you have advanced gum recession, you should discuss the Pinhole Surgical Technique with an experienced, professional dentist like ours at Chun & Yang Dental.
