Why Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ Can Be an Attractive Alternative

The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ may be an attractive alternative to gum grafting because it is a non-invasive procedure. Unlike gum grafting procedures, there is no cutting of the gum tissue involved.

There are many different reasons that cause gum recession, aggressive brushing, orthodontics, tooth grinding, perio disease or lack of gingival tissue which gives you the appearance of very long teeth. Nothing ages a smile and face more than receding gums. Receding gums can also cause tooth sensitivity along with decay. If left untreated could lead to tooth/teeth loss. Gum recession affects over 50% of the population to some degree.

The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique

Dr. Steven Chang is proud to offer this innovative new solution for gum recession known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) in Arizona at five (5) dental office locations (see locations below). Traditionally, a periodontist needed to harvest gum tissue from the roof of the patients mouth. A flap or tunnel was made in the front of the teeth and the tissue sewn on. Only two to three teeth could be treated at one time as the donor site had to heal, which was so painful. Patients would need to be out of work for a week or on narcotics. What makes the PST so revolutionary it uses a 0.1 inch “pinhole” opening to move a patients gumline to its healthy, and natural positioning. With this technique up to 14 teeth can be corrected in one to two hours. Healing time is reduced from 3 weeks for traditional gum surgery using gum grafting to one day with the gum rejuvenation technique.

Success Rate of PST

Rate of success of the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) is comparable to the highest rate of 90% attributed to traditional methods, according to a 33-month study of 43 patients. PST not only treats natural teeth affected by gum recession, but also crowns and bridges. With PST the crown or bridge can be restored to a natural, well-fitting look.
