A number of factors can cause receding gums but the most common cause of gingival recession is periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a vicious cycle of bacteria growing and spreading throughout your mouth and its health affects have been shown to spread through your bloodstream, and worsen other serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Without a protective barrier of gum tissue our teeth and bone are far more susceptible to the damage of outside stimuli causing decay and disease.
What is Gum Recession and Can It Treated?
TRADITIONAL GUM RECESSION SURGERY
Until now, traditional surgery to correct receding gums has involved cutting tissue from another part of the mouth and stitching it onto the areas of recession. This procedure can be painful and rather invasive. Dr. Bradley Ross is happy to offer his patients a minimally-invasive alternative with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™).
PST™: THE MINIMALLY INVASIVE ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL GUM RECESSION SURGERY

Dr. Bradley Ross is PST™ certified and trained to bring you this breakthrough procedure to correct receding gums without surgery. Invented by John Chao D.D.S., PST™ is minimally invasive because it requires no cutting, no stitches, and no second surgical site. For the procedure, a small pinhole is made in your gums and special instruments are used to pull down excess gum tissue to cover the areas of recession.
