Effective and Safe
Allowing gum recession to continue without treatment is dangerous to overall dental health. Dr. Salloum recommends treating receding gums to protect surrounding gum tissue, the roots of teeth, and prevent teeth from becoming loose. If not reversed, periodontal disease could develop, eventually leading to tooth loss.
As opposed to traditional gum grafts, the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) is a less invasive form of gum recession surgery. Instead of cutting and restoring gum tissue using stitches, the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) utilizes a simple instrument to pull gum tissue into place, where it is fastened into place so that it can heal.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) has been proven effective and safe, resulting in less pain and discomfort, as well as faster healing time.
