PST™ is Today’s Alternative to Traditional Gum Surgery

Receding gums is often caused by periodontal disease but genetics, lifestyle habits such as smoking, changing hormones, oral piercings, orthodontic treatment, and other dental procedures including traditional gum disease surgery can also cause recession. Repairing gum recession is important to making the smile not only look better but to also restore protection to the teeth.

More patients are pleased to discover an alternative to traditional gum surgery, or tissue grafting, with Dr. Sohn called the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This innovative procedure delivers results faster than grafting, with less bleeding and minimal discomfort.

PST™ was developed and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. and is designed to repair recessed gum tissue through a small entry point at the recession site. Via this small entry point, the gum tissue is loosened enough to be pulled over the exposed tooth roots to provide a more attractive appearance and a healthier, protective gum line. Collagen strips are then placed to hold the newly repositioned tissue in place during the healing phase.

Results are rendered much quicker than tissue grafting because there are no incisions or sutures needed, and Dr. Sohn can treat more than one area in a single office visit. Patients who have PST™ instead of regular gum surgery are always pleased with the immediate results and fast recovery.
