Receding gums can have a big impact on your smile and your health. Gum recession can be caused by a variety of factors, and it can lead to gum disease, tooth sensitivity, and even lost teeth. While gum grafting used to be the standard treatment for receding gums, there is a minimally invasive alternative for today’s patients: the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™).
Dr. Mark Iacobelli is proud to provide the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) for his patients in North Royalton, OH. Instead of surgically grafting gum tissue from another site in your mouth, PST™ uses a tiny pinhole in your gums to reposition your remaining gum tissue so that the root of your tooth is once again covered. Multiple teeth can be treated during one visit so multiple visits may not be necessary. In addition, no sutures are required and the recovery time is remarkably fast.
Advances in dental techniques are now reducing the need for invasive surgeries. Minimally invasive techniques like the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique allow Dr. Iacobelli to provide effective dental treatments with less pain, less bleeding, and a faster recovery time.
Benefits of PST™
If gum recession has exposed the root of your tooth or if you experience sensitivity, it is important to schedule a consultation to treat your receding gums. Dr. Iacobelli will determine whether treatment is necessary and explain your treatment options to you. Call today to schedule a consultation.
