Frequently Asked Questions
The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ was invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. and has been deemed a ‘breakthrough’ technique for gum recession and treatment options for receding gums.
Gum recession is just one of the signs of gum disease. There are many different reasons that cause gum recession: Aggressive brushing, tooth grinding, perio disease, lack of gingival tissue which gives you the appearance of very long teeth, or as a side effect of certain medications that increase the risk of periodontal disease. Nothing ages a smile more than receding gums.
Receding gums can also cause tooth sensitivity along with decay. If left untreated it could lead to teeth loss. Gum recession affects over 50% of the population to some degree. Why should receding gums be taken seriously? When receding gums occur, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gum line and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST™ is incision and suture free.
(PST™) differ from traditional gum grafting? Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gum line. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Pinhole Surgical Technique™.
