The Troubling Effects of Gum Recession on Your Smile
If you suffer from gum recession, you may be noticing that your teeth appear longer and can be sensitive to hot or cold beverages. But a receding gum line can hurt more than the aesthetics of your smile. Gum recession can be the result of gum disease, a progressive condition that if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and systemic complications. Dr. Alexander Volchonok is certified to perform the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), a minimally-invasive procedure that treats gum recession by restoring your gum tissue and smile back to a healthy state.
Experience Immediate Results with a Minimally-Invasive Option
The minimally-invasive and virtually pain-free PST protocol is a great alternative to traditional gum grafting, and can treat multiple affected teeth in a single appointment. Performed with specialized and patented instruments, this advanced approach eliminates the need for scalpels, incisions, or sutures. During the procedure, Dr. Volchonok creates a tiny hole in the gum line above the affected tooth. With careful precision, he gently loosens the gum tissue and repositions it to effectively cover the exposed tooth root. Under his experienced care, you will receive immediate aesthetic and functional results with a fast recovery and healing time.
