Dr. Adam Tan, a dentist with a special interest in periodontics, is honoring Self-Improvement Month this September by encouraging patients with receding gums in Barrie, ON, to undergo the Chao Pinhole ® Surgical Technique (PST™). This type of procedure becomes necessary when periodontal disease progresses to such a degree, where the gums have receded to a detrimental point, or no longer cover the gums sufficiently. If the condition is ignored, the risk increases for loosened or lost teeth.

Periodontal disease is a serious condition that affects millions of Canadians every year. If the teeth are not properly cared for with daily brushing and flossing, bacteria can infect the gums, consistently leaving open wounds that worsen over time. As the disease progresses, recession can occur and immediate action may be necessary to prevent the condition from worsening. Receding gums may cause many patients in Barrie, ON, to experience increased pain and sensitivity, without prompt treatment.

PST™ can help treat the effects of gum disease by bringing the gums back to their original position, covering the roots of the teeth. This is traditionally remedied by utilizing extremely invasive and uncomfortable measures, such as gum grafting and surgery. In these procedures, tissue is extracted from the roof of the mouth to graft onto the gums, covering any visible root. This involves an extensive healing period and may be prove to be incredibly painful. Conversely, PST™ requires no cutting or sutures, and is completed in as little as an hour, depending on the number of teeth that require treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Tan simply uses small, specialized tools, to manipulate the gums accordingly into their proper position.

Those with periodontal disease are especially encouraged to call and initiate the route to better oral health today.
