Gum Recession Treatment: Dr. Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)

Gum Recession Treatment: Dr. Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)

Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth. When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness. PST is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is incision and suture free.
