Benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique® | Camp Hill Dentist

176997237Do you have receding gums causing your teeth to become more sensitive to cold and hot temperatures? Do your teeth seem to look longer? These are common signs of gum recession; and the adverse effects of gum recession go far beyond just cosmetics. Gum recession can lead to several problems from chronic tooth sensitivity to making your teeth more prone to tooth decay and erosion. Also, once gum recession occurs your gums cannot naturally return to their proper place.

Fortunately, there’s been fascinating advancements in the dental field that can correct and repair your receding gums. The Pinhole Surgical Technique®, also known as PST®, has been deemed the “revolutionary” technique for treating gum recession. Unlike gum grafting procedures, the Pinhole Surgical Technique is a scalpel- free, suture-free procedure resulting in almost immediate results.
