Dr. Robert Johnson, a leading dentist in Salmon Arm, BC, now offers a new solution to patients experiencing receding gums, through a quick and effective treatment at Johnson Dental. Using the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), Dr. Johnson is now able to help patients see improved gum line appearance, usually with one simple office visit. Gum recession is a serious problem that affects millions, many of whom avoid treatment out of fear of the invasive cutting and stitching of traditional gum grafting treatments.

The minimally invasive PST™ involves a tiny pinhole in the gum tissue through which Dr. Johnson uses special dental tools to gently lift the healthy tissue and move it to cover areas of recession. Because there is no cutting or stitching of the gums, there is little to no bleeding, swelling, or discomfort with the procedure. Patients report the ability to return to work and life activities within a day of the surgery, with no need for strong sedatives or pain medications.

Dentists in Salmon Arm, BC who offer the PST™, such as Dr. Johnson, must first be specially trained in the patented process of this receding gums treatment. This procedure helps patients see an improved smile in a simple office visit. Dr. Johnson received the advanced training and certification to use the procedure to enhance his patients' oral health and appearance with this new technique.

The problem of receding gums is not only unsightly, but can contribute to further dental health problems. Progressive damage to gum tissue occurs with gum recession that will not grow back once it has receded. Areas where the teeth or roots are exposed with extreme recession allow damage to advance, possibly leading to loss of teeth and even bone damage. With PST™, gum recession is treated with a simple procedure that allows the patient to see improvement the same day, with no lengthy recovery time.
