Gum recession is common in patients who have developed conditions such as gum disease. The gum tissue begins to shrink due to the infection and can leave the teeth more exposed. This can result in an increased risk of cavities. With the help of a dedicated dental professional at Avanti Dentistry in Tysons, Virginia, you can treat your gum recession and restore your healthy, beautiful smile with special gum rejuvenation treatments such as the Chao pinhole gum recession service.
Developed by Dr. John Chao, this gum recession treatment eliminates the need for grafting or stitches. It uses a small access hole in the gum tissue to pull the gums through to reposition it. It can then be positioned over the crown of a tooth to cover the exposed areas. Also known as PST, this gum rejuvenation method allows for results without scalpels or surgery. It has completely revolutionized how patients restore their smiles after periodontal disease or periodontitis and protects their natural teeth from further damage.
There are some benefits that make this treatment a reliable and trusted option for many of the patients who visit Avanti Dentistry. The Chao PST:
First, our team starts by ensuring you are comfortable with proper sedation and anesthetics. Then, our dentist begins to work on the smile. It can take a few minutes per tooth to complete the procedure, depending on the severity of your gum recession. After the gum treatment, you can expect mild to moderate swelling and discomfort for a few days. Our team provides detailed aftercare instructions for patients to help with healing and ensure optimal results.
Just like with any dental procedure, proper oral hygiene is critical to maintaining oral health and reducing the potential for complications following this and other dental treatments provided by our team at Avanti Dentistry.
Our dentists at Avanti Dentistry work with patients in and around the area, considering ways to address gum recession and find reliable rejuvenation options.
