Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ - Berkeley, CA
Treat Your Receding Gums
Treating Gum Recession with PST™
Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth and recedes down the root of the tooth structure. The roots are then exposed to the oral environment, which often causes temperature sensitivity while increasing the risk of root surface decay. Receding gums are one of the first signs of periodontal disease and can be triggered by the wrong tooth brushing technique, hormonal fluctuations, or even a misaligned bite. However, periodontal disease is the leading cause of this condition.
PST™ has been deemed a breakthrough procedure for treating gum recession without the need for traditional gum surgery because it is minimally invasive and provides immediate benefits. It was developed by John Chao, D.D.S. and is a patented procedure.
Once the gum tissues recede, they do not grow back. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional gum surgery for gum recession and want to maintain a beautiful smile, schedule your consultation with Dr. Chertok in Berkeley, CA today!
