Understanding Gum Recession

If you have receding gums because of gum disease or from other oral health issues, you may be a good candidate for receding gums treatment with the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This is a minimally invasive alternative to gum graft surgery and can be a very effective way to restore the gum line. Dr. Jin Kim may recommend this procedure as an alternative to gum graft surgery because of its numerous benefits.

The Minimally Invasive Treatment Option for Gum Recession

 



How the PST™ Works

Dr. Kim has extensive experience performing this procedure and can treat several areas in a single appointment. Dr. Kim will first create a pinhole in the receded area. Specialized instruments are then used to loosen the tissue and move it to a more natural position. The healing process is relatively quick and patients enjoy immediate cosmetic benefits. Dr. Kim can help to restore your beautiful smile with a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting. He may recommend PST™ as part of your treatment plan to restore receding gums and enhance your smile.
