Gum recession occurs so gradually that you may not notice your lowered gum line until there has been a significant change, and the health of your teeth is already at risk. Receding gums can expose more of your tooth surface to bacteria and plaque, and result in tooth sensitivity and root decay. Healthier, more attractive gum lines can be achieved immediately with the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This innovative gum recession surgery is performed without scalpels or sutures and can restore your gums to healthier levels in just one session. If you need treatment for receding gums in Laurel, MD, schedule an appointment with Dr. Stewart Rosenberg at Laurel Laser Dentistry
to learn about PST™ gum recession surgery. The benefits of PST™ include:
- Instantly enhanced appearance
- Faster recovery times than those of traditional gum recession surgery
- Little to no bleeding or swelling
- Multiple sites can be treated in one session
- Minimally invasive
PST™ Treatment for Receding Gums in Laurel, MD
During the procedure, a small opening in the gum tissue will be created near the tooth that needs treatment. A dental tool is then inserted and used to manipulate the connective tissue that holds your gums in place. Once the tissue is loosened, it can be lowered (or raised) to cover the exposed tooth root. Collagen is placed at the site to maintain the new position of the gum tissue while it heals. You will leave our office with an instantly improved smile, after just one visit.
PST™ Gum Recession Surgery Compared with Gum Grafting Procedures
Gum grafts require two surgical sites – a collection site and a treatment site. This limits the number of teeth that may be treated in one gum recession surgery visit. PST™, however, can be performed on multiple sites in one session due to its minimally invasive nature. PST™ also delivers immediate results without the lengthy downtime and discomfort associated with gum grafting.
PST™ is quickly becoming the preferred method of restoring receded gum tissues. For your consultation in Laurel, MD, contact Laurel Laser Dentistry
