In honor of Self-Improvement Month this September, Dr. Jacqueline Subka encourages all of her patients with gum recession to seek treatment, using the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™). This procedure provides patients with a less invasive option for treating their condition, without using incisions or sutures. It can allow patients with sensitive teeth, in Thousand Oaks, CA, to regain their smiles without having to endure the painful aftermath of traditional gum surgery.

The first symptoms patients often experience with recession are increased tooth sensitivity and an elongated appearance of their teeth. This occurs because the gums begin to pull away from the teeth, exposing the roots. The root is not meant to endure the harsh environment of the mouth, subjecting patients in Thousand Oaks, CA, with the condition of sensitive teeth.

While many aspects may be responsible for causing gum recession, the most common cause is periodontal disease. Genetics, brushing too aggressively, and grinding the teeth are also common factors leading to gum recession. No matter what has led to the condition, Dr. Subka encourages many of her patients to undergo PST™ to reclaim their smiles. It is a procedure so simple, that it only requires about an hour to complete, and patients generally resume normal routines immediately. To perform the technique, Dr. Subka simply places a small hole in the gums, working with specialized tools through the hole to gently maneuver the gums back to their appropriate locations. Small strips of collagen hold the gums in place and are eventually absorbed by the body, once the healing process is complete.

Patients with sensitive teeth in Thousand Oaks, CA, do not have to live with the effects of gum recession. Affected individuals who would like to take advantage of Self-Improvement Month, by seeking treatment from Dr. Subka, can contact her office to schedule an appointment.
