Countless people currently suffer from gum recession in Louisville, KY. Thus, you should never feel alone in this struggle. Many others face the same issues of worrying about developing unsightly patches of exposed tooth enamel or the potential to lose teeth altogether due to their receding gums. Yet you’re not without options when it comes to fighting back against this condition.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique™

The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) offers you a potentially better alternative to treating gum recession than through conventional gum grafting. While grafting in donor gum tissue has proven to be effective, it’s been shown that many can easily achieve the same results with PST™ while having a much better overall surgical experience. For starters, you don’t have to worry about incisions, sutures, or grafts with PST™. Rather, PST™ is simply focused on treating your existing gum tissue through as minimally-invasive means as possible. That means that you’ll not only enjoy a faster recovery with much less post-operative discomfort and pain, but the results of your procedure will be immediately evident. Follow-up care with patients has shown those results to be easily sustained over time.

How it Works

There’s really no great mystery to PST™; it simply makes the process of adjusting existing gum tissue much more efficient. Here’s how it works:

  • Drs. Nelson and Lowy use a needle to make a small hole in the gum tissue surrounding the affected area.
  • Once the hole has been made, special surgical tools can then be advanced through it to help gently loosen the tissue.
  • The tools then expand and slide the gumline to cover any exposed root structure.

That’s it. There’s no more having to worry about using sharp surgical scalpels, and no more time needed in order to care for a graft or a surgical site incision. PST™ can be a great option to combat gum recession. Drs. Nelson and Lowy put the potential of benefitting from this treatment right at your fingertips. Isn’t it time that you took advantage of it? Once you see your corrected smile, you’ll certainly be glad that you did.
