Receding Gums Treatment Rochester, MI

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) is a scalpel and suture-free treatment for receding gums. This highly specialized technique can only be offered by dentists who have become certified through the successful completion of an intensive training course. Rochester dentist Dr. Kurt A. Doolin is now certified to perform PST and pleased to offer this new service to our patients.

If your gums have begun to recede, please contact Rochester Advanced Dentistry online or by calling 248-656-2020 today to schedule your PST evaluation with Dr. Doolin.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique

PST is performed using special instruments that gently loosen and reposition gum tissue over exposed roots. With this technique, Dr. Doolin can immediately eliminate the discomfort caused by exposed tooth roots while also greatly improving the appearance of your smile. However, gum tissue needn’t have receded to the point where it is aesthetically displeasing for PST to be performed. In fact, many patients may benefit from this treatment long before obvious signs of recession are present.

During your next appointment, Dr. Doolin can discuss this treatment with you in greater detail to help you determine if it is suitable for your needs.

Advantages of Our Receding Gums Treatment

PST does not require any cutting of gum tissue and eliminates the need for sutures following your procedure. What’s more, this technique reduces the risks of bleeding, swelling, and postoperative discomfort that often follow more invasive treatments such as tissue grafting and other surgical procedures.

PST is a wonderful solution for many of our patients, but it may not be right for all needs. The best way to determine if this noninvasive gum recession treatment is ideal for you is through a one-on-one consultation at our comfortable Rochester office.

To schedule your initial consultation with our certified Rochester PST dentist, please e-mail or call us at (248) 656-2020. We welcome patients living throughout Oakland County, Macomb County, and surrounding areas of Michigan.
