Minimally Invasive Gum Recession Treatment to Restore a Healthy Smile

Gum recession can not only make you feel self-conscious about your smile, it can also affect your oral health! You need a certain level of gum tissue around the teeth to reduce tooth sensitivity and to protect your tooth roots. If you notice your gums are receding, you may be a candidate for a gum grafting or gum restoration procedure. Receding gum surgery is now gentler, easier and faster using Pinhole® Surgical Technique™ (PST™). Dr. Sanjabi in Downey, CA is fully trained to perform this minimally invasive procedure.

How Does the Pinhole Surgical Technique Work?

Dr. Sanjabi may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) if you have lost some of your gum tissue from gum disease or other factors such as teeth grinding habits or by using the wrong tooth brushing technique. Traditional gum grafting surgery typically involves removing a sample of healthy tissue from the palate and suturing it to the gum line, however PST can be an attractive noninvasive option for patients who want immediate cosmetic benefits. PST can restore the gum line without incisions or sutures.

To perform this procedure, Dr. Sanjabi makes a very small hole in the gum tissue, through which he uses special instruments to loosen healthy gum tissue and move it to cover exposed root surfaces. The process is relatively simple and effective enough to restore the gum line without extensive surgery. With PST, Dr. Sanjabi can treat several teeth in a single visit.

Receding Gum Surgery with PST

Receding gum surgery is a common procedure that many patients require in order to correct noticeable recession caused by periodontal disease, traditional gum disease treatment and orthodontic procedures, genetics, or from brushing the teeth too harshly over long periods of time. Correcting the problem is important because gum recession causes significant tooth root exposure, which changes the way the smile appears and functions. Teeth may look poorly shaped, larger than normal, develop gaps and spaces, and feel more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Loss of gum tissue also puts teeth at higher risk for decay and other complications.

Causes of Receding Gums

Gum recession typically occurs as a side effect of periodontal disease but may also be the result of brushing too aggressively or other factors. We can address your concerns during your visit.

Beautiful, Healthy Gums in Less Time

Conventional receding gum surgery replaces lost gum tissue by taking healthy tissue from the roof of the mouth or a tissue bank and relocating it to the receded areas. The process works well but can be painful and require several office visits, depending on the amount of recession that has occurred.

PST for receding gum surgery is different. Pioneered by Dr. John Chao, PST simplifies the entire surgical process with new technologies and tools that deliver amazing results in less time and with more comfort. Dr. Sanjabi is fully trained and experienced in providing this advanced and innovative technique. With PST, there is no grafting involved. Special tools are used to create a very small hole on the gum line. The tissue is gently handled until it becomes loose enough to be pulled over the tooth roots. The technique is very tolerable, making it possible for us to perform the procedure in several areas during your visit. Recovery is much faster than traditional receding gum surgery and patients are thrilled with the immediate results.

If you need receding gum surgery, pinhole surgical treatment in Downey, CA with Dr. Sanjabi is worth considering. Call us today to arrange your appointment.
