The Pinhole Surgical Technique for Receding Gums in Austin, TX

Do you have sensitive teeth caused by receding gums? Gum grafting was previously the most recommended treatment to restore gum lines. Grafting enjoys predictable success yet requires two surgical sites, a donor site and the treatment site.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), however, corrects gum recession without incisions or sutures. It is a minimally invasive method of returning your gums to earlier, healthy levels. If you are suffering from receding gums in Austin, TX, schedule an appointment with Dr. Corinne Scalzitti for PST™. This new procedure offers the following advantages to our patients:

• Instantly improved appearance
• Faster healing time
• Less sensitive teeth
• Corrects single or multiple teeth
• Minimized bleeding and swelling
• Reduced pain and discomfort

How PST™ Can Correct Receding Gums in Austin, TX

The most common cause of gum recession is periodontal disease. Symptoms include sensitive teeth, bleeding or swollen gums, receding gums, and loose teeth. If periodontal disease is the source of your gum recession, treatment will be necessary to address the infection before your PST™ session may be scheduled with Dr. Scalzitti.

When you arrive for your PST™ appointment, Dr. Scalzitti will create a small opening in the gum tissue close to the exposed tooth root. Using special dental tools, Dr. Scalzitti will loosen the connective tissue until your gums reposition to the normal level that correctly frames your teeth. Your gum tissue is then held in place with a collagen material while it heals in its new position.

This technique can be performed for one tooth or multiple teeth. PST™ is performed using your own gum tissue at the treatment site and does not require the use of scalpels or sutures. Its minimally invasive nature affords reduced pain and less downtime for our patients, as well as an immediately more attractive smile.

Gum recession treatment has been revolutionized with the implementation of PST™. For your consultation in Austin, TX, contact Dr. Scalzitti today.
