People who suffer from gum recession in Birmingham, AL, and wish to receive treatment in the spirit of Self-Improvement Month during September are invited to visit Dr. Leigh Kent for the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™). This new procedure allows Dr. Kent to correct severe gum recession in as little as one appointment, without any large incisions or sutures. Patients typically experience immediate cosmetic improvements after receiving receding gums treatment, decreasing the risk of short- or long-term complications.

PST™ provides Dr. Kent’s patients a precise and less invasive alternative to gum grafting. During this procedure, Dr. Kent creates a small pinhole incision in the receding gums and then reaches through the incision with a specialized instrument. Dr. Kent then gently loosens the gum tissue, restoring it to a healthier position. Patients do not require sutures, therefore enjoy improved smiles immediately after undergoing this treatment for gum recession, in Birmingham, AL. Additionally, many people experience minimal unpleasant side effects, such as bleeding, pain or infection, following PST™.    

Gum recession treatment can assist many people with improving their oral health, as well as the aesthetic appearance of their smiles. In some cases, receding gums may reveal an early sign of other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease or bite misalignment. Patients who seek treatment for gum recession can be assured that any underlying causes will be detected and addressed promptly. PST™ may also directly reduce the danger of certain health problems commonly associated with gum recession, including tooth infection and decay, ensuring that the teeth remain adequately protected.

People who wish to transform their smiles and improve their oral health, during Self-Improvement Month, are encouraged to call Dr. Kent’s office to schedule consultations about treatment for gum recession in Birmingham, AL.
