Dr. Jacqueline Subka is now offering the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), which is a minimally invasive treatment for gum recession, to people who suffer from receding gums in Simi Valley, CA. This new technique minimizes unwanted side effects, such as bleeding or pain, that may accompany a conventional gum graft. The procedure also can help protect against various health risks associated with gum recession, including infections and tooth loss.

Before the invention of PST™, dental professionals often treated severe gum recession by harvesting healthy tissue and placing it beneath the receding gum tissue. After this type of grafting procedure, patients typically require up to two weeks to heal. Some patients also may reqiure multiple gum graft procedures, since only a limited amount of tissue can be grafted at a time. PST™ allows Dr. Subka to avoid many of these issues by performing a less-invasive procedure that does not require any tissue grafting. Many patients with receding gums in Simi Valley, CA, may receive full corrective treatment and enjoy immediate cosmetic improvements after just one appointment with Dr. Subka.

To perform PST™, Dr. Subka makes a tiny incision in the gum tissue that needs to be repositioned. By inserting a tiny instrument through this incision, Dr. Subka can carefully loosen the connective gum tissue, until she can move it to a more natural position. This minimally invasive technique reduces the likelihood of patients developing infections after the procedure. Additionally, many patients can resume their regular activities within a day, which is more of an expedited time frame than that which is advisable after a gum graft. After the procedure, Dr. Subka’s patients typically experience relief from unwanted gum recession symptoms, such as tooth sensitivity. Patients also are less likely to develop health problems that can occur when the teeth or roots are overly exposed, including loosened teeth and decay.

Aside from subjecting patients to a greater risk for tooth loss, gum recession can be a warning sign of more detrimental oral health issues. Gum disease is a common cause of gum recession, but inadequate hygiene habits, tooth clenching, and over-brushing may also promote this condition. For this reason, Dr. Subka encourages patients who notice signs of receding gums in Simi Valley, CA, to seek treatment promptly. Dr. Subka can then plan a course of treatment for the recession and any related health problems. Patients are encouraged to schedule consultations today by calling Dr. Subka’s office or visiting her website.
