Some of the key benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) include:
If you are noticing signs of gingival recession and are ready for treatment, Dr. Nick Seddon and Dr. Dhillon may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to restore your gum line. This innovative technique does not require making incisions and is a minimally-invasive alternative to gum grafting.
The procedure was invented by a dentist and can be very effective for treating receding gums. If you have lost gum tissue because of gum disease, using the wrong brushing technique, or because of bruxism, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
PST™ is an attractive alternative to the traditional gum grafting procedure because there is no swelling or bleeding involved. Dr. Seddon and Dr. Dhillon will not need to make any incisions or cut away healthy gum tissue to perform this procedure. The technique delivers immediate cosmetic benefits so you will see results after your visit. We can treat multiple teeth at the same time, so multiple office visits may not be needed. This procedure corrects gingival recession to create a healthier and more attractive smile.
