Receding gums are much more common than most people realize, and the condition affects a large portion of the population. Many individuals choose not to seek treatment from a periodontist near Valdosta, GA, because they do not want to deal with the discomfort and down time that naturally accompany traditional gum recession treatments. However, Valdosta residents can now receive the highly effective PST™ treatment from Dr. Wood that causes minimal trauma to gum tissue and does not require invasive gum grafting procedures or uncomfortable and unattractive sutures.
PST™ is a revolutionary treatment that involves making a very small hole in the patient’s gums near the receded areas and then carefully introducing a special instrument into the opening. The instrument is gently manipulated by Dr. Wood in order to loosen the gum tissue from the tooth and reposition it over the receded area. The entire procedure is very quick and causes minimal trauma and bleeding to the gum tissue and surrounding areas. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the technique, patients can immediately return to their normal daily activities after receiving the procedure, and they do not have to deal with the pain and traumatized tissue that accompany traditional gum recession treatments. They also do not have to worry about unsightly sutures in their gums or complications that sometimes occur after invasive dental procedures.
