PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE - Aliso Viejo, CA
PST™ begins with the creation of a pinhole sized opening in the gum tissue near the area of recession. Through this opening, Dr. Cho will introduce specialized instruments that will enable her to gently loosen the tissue and reposition it over areas in need. Collagen strips are then placed which will hold the newly positioned gum tissue during healing. Since this procedure is minimally invasive and requires no sutures, the gums heal quickly. Patients enjoy a fast recovery time and we can treat several teeth in a single visit.
Causes of Gum Recession
Many people need to undergo a gum surgery procedure to restore receding gums. Some of the common causes of receding gums include:
• Gum disease
• Improper tooth brushing technique
• Poor dental care habits
• Hormonal fluctuations
• Misaligned bite
• Body piercings
Receding gums are one of the warning signs and symptoms of gum disease. Gum recession can also result from a number of factors, such as overaggressive tooth brushing, clenching or grinding of the teeth, or lifestyle choices like oral piercings and tobacco use. PST™ is a breakthrough procedure for treating receding gums and offers immediate cosmetic benefits. It was developed and patented by an experienced dentist, and is very effective for restoring your beautiful smile without extensive surgery.
If you are looking for an alternative to traditional gum grafting surgery and want to restore your smile after gum recession has occurred, schedule your appointment in Aliso Viejo, CA with Dr. Cho today! PST™ may be the ideal solution to treat your receding gums.
Our Google Patient Review
Awesome Experience! I was very impressed with how Dr. Cho is keeping up the the latest techniques in her field. She performed gum rejuvenation surgery for my receding gums with new "pinhole technique" that requires no cutting from the roof of your mouth. I was very happy with the results and the excellent "team philosophy" of the staff. I have continued to use Dr. Cho for cleanings, filings, and new mouth guard. Very happy and would recommend to use Dr. Cho!
