How We Reverse Receding Gums With PST™
This procedure is performed without any scalpels or sutures. Dr. Astolfi will make a small hole in the gums using a special instrument and gently move some of the loose tissue over the areas that have receded. The gums can then heal in their new position without the use of stitches, special gels, connective tissue grafts, or other materials. Everything is done quickly and painlessly right in our office.
Benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique
PST™ offers numerous benefits to the patient and can be an attractive alternative to traditional surgery. It is a proven and effective method for restoring the gum line and can help you maintain that beautiful smile after periodontal disease or other oral health issues that have damaged the gum line. You will recover quickly from this procedure and we can treat multiple teeth in a single visit. Although this is a minimally invasive procedure, there may be slight bleeding, swelling, or discomfort involved.
