Drs. Amar Katranji and Kelly Misch offer a new treatment for receding gums that is highly effective and involves very little discomfort. This treatment, called the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), replaces traditional gum grafting procedures. Drs. Katranji and Misch are excited about the oral health and cosmetic benefits that this gum recession treatment in Ann Arbor, MI provides their patients. As periodontists practicing together at Michigan Implants and Periodontics, they are trained and certified to perform this minimally invasive, highly innovative procedure.

PST™ replaces traditional gum grafting surgery. With this procedure, there is no cutting, stitching, or grafting required. Drs. Katranji and Misch create a very small pinhole entry point in the gums near areas of recession. Through this opening, they use their small instruments to loosen and detach the receding gums from the unhealthy position that left the roots of the teeth exposed. It is then a simple matter for Drs. Katranji and Misch to move the loose gum tissue to its ideal location. In as little as one day, the only sign of treatment is a beautiful, improved gum line.

Many residents mistakenly view gum recession treatment as purely cosmetic. While it is certainly true that a healthy gum line is more appealing than recession, far more is involved than aesthetics. Anyone who has suffered from recession will attest to the fact that the problem is often uncomfortable. The roots of the teeth do not have a protective layer of enamel, which means that when receded tissues leave them exposed, sweets and extreme temperatures can cause severe sensitivity. In addition to the discomfort that patients experience, receding gums can also lead to root decay and the potential for eventual tooth loss. As problems compound, they become increasingly likely to negatively affect the diet and general health. The decision to treat recession is one that improves health and aesthetics simultaneously.
