Dr. Steven C. Chang is pleased to invite all local residents who are dealing with gum recession in Glendale, AZ to call his office and find out more about the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) treatment option. Patients who have receding gums and do not want to undergo traditional gum grafting procedures can now receive minimally invasive gum recession treatment from Dr. Chang that does not involve incisions or sutures.
Gum recession is a common ailment that affects a large portion of the population in the United States. Many individuals who are affected by this condition do not seek treatment right away because they do not wish to undergo traditional gum grafting procedures that can be quite painful and invasive. While many patients experience long term success with traditional treatment for gum recession in Glendale, AZ, the recovery time can be lengthy and the required sutures can be both uncomfortable and unsightly until the area is fully healed. PST™ minimizes some of these drawbacks and makes it possible to receive treatment for receding gums in a quick and minimally invasive manner. Due to the fact that it does not involve gum grafting or sutures, patients who receive this treatment option are able to heal more quickly and with minimal discomfort compared to those who receive traditional gum recession treatments.
During PST™, a very small hole is made in the soft gum tissue near the affected site. A specially designed tool is then inserted into the hole and gently moved back and forth in order to slacken the gum tissue from around the teeth. Once the tissue is loosened, it can then be repositioned gently over the teeth in order to reduce and cover up any recession. The simple and effective technique can be completed very quickly, and it does not cause swelling, bleeding, or excessive pain. Additionally, because there are no unsightly sutures involved, patients enjoy an immediate improvement in the appearance of their smiles once the procedure is completed.
Residents who are suffering from gum recession in Glendale, AZ are invited to find out more about using PST™ to treat their receding gums by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Chang’s office.
