Dr. Mu has received special training in gum recession treatment, using the Dr. Chow pinhole surgical technique (PST). Our dentist near San Diego is now able to easily treat patients who are suffering from gum recession problems. Gum recession is the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. This can happen for several different reasons including: the patient has periodontal disease; gum recession has occurred as a natural result of aging; or a person has abrasive habits regarding brushing their teeth. When gum recession takes place, the root of the tooth becomes exposed. This makes the tooth very vulnerable to tooth decay and other problems along the gum line, and even beneath it. Since healthy gums are very important to having a healthy mouth and healthy teeth, gum recession treatment is important to help ensure lasting good dental health. PST is a minimally-invasive treatment for gum recession and is often preferred when compared to traditional gum grafting techniques. Patients enjoy receiving PST treatment because there is no need for surgical incisions or sutures during and after the treatment.
During treatment, a small hole is made by a needle which gently loosens the gum tissue and gently glides it over the area of the tooth which has experienced receipted gums. Since this procedure does not use any cutting or stitching, there is very little pain, swelling, or bleeding for the patient after the procedure is completed. Patients also get to experience an instant cosmetic improvement. Gum recession is a very common problem which affects a large size of the US population.
