Receding gums are a common consequence of gum disease, although the gums can also recede with age or other factors. Gum recession can not only make your teeth look too long, but it can cause disruptive teeth sensitivity as well. In the past, gum grafting was the only option to restore receding gums. However, today’s advanced techniques now give patients the opportunity to correct their receding gums without the scalpels and sutures of gum grafting surgery.
Atlantic Dental Partners proudly offers the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) as a minimally invasive solution to address gum recession. This innovative approach uses a small pinhole needle to loosen the gum tissue and gently adjust it over the receding area of the tooth. This procedure greatly reduces postoperative discomfort and dramatically accelerates healing compared to past methods. If you want to learn more about how you can get long-lasting results in gum recession treatment without the use of scalpels or painful incisions, contact our office today to schedule a consult and learn more about the Pinhole Surgical Technique at Atlantic Dental Partners.
