Living with receding gums is not an occurrence to take casually. Although you may not be initially concerned about the appearance of your teeth, leaving this condition untreated will likely result in the development of more dental complications that can adversely affect your way of life.

What You Should Know About Gum Recession

Gum recession does not discriminate against individuals. Once it begins, the only way to cease its progression is to receive treatment, which may include treatment for the underlying cause as well. Recession can develop at any time, especially with any of the following risk factors:

 ·         Untreated periodontal disease
 ·         Genetics
 ·         Brushing teeth too hard
 ·         Hormones
 ·         Smoking

There is no cure for gum recession. However, Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross offer an effective and minimally invasive treatment, for anyone who suffers from receding gums in Miami, FL. This treatment is the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™).

What is PST™

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a gum recession treatment that does not require any incisions or sutures. Patients who opt to undergo the procedure choose this treatment because it provides a quick and efficient way to resolve their receding gums, without having to undertake oral surgery. Since the procedure is completed within a few hours, many patients enjoy the convenience of resuming their normal activities, as soon as the following day.

Reasons to consider the procedure:

 ·         Helps to preserve teeth
 ·         Prevents progression of gum recession
 ·         Prevents and resolves teeth sensitivity
 ·         Reverses appearance of elongated teeth

It is important for prospective PST™ patients to understand that the procedure is not suitable for everyone. Dr. Ross would assess your dental health and history prior to developing a customized plan of treatment. If it is determined you may benefit from the procedure, a commitment to periodic dental treatments, along with an improvement in oral hygiene in the future, will assist to maintain your results.
