Pinhole Surgical Technique - Arkansas Periodontal & Implant Associates
No Sutures. No Second Surgical Site. Pinhole Surgical Technique is the Minimally Invasive Gum Surgery Alternative!
Benefits of PST Procedure
Traditional gum grafting procedures can be invasive and painful, often requiring a second surgical site. Pinhole Surgical Technique does not require a second surgical site and is minimally invasive.
Arkansas Periodontal and Implant Associates Now Offer The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™)
If you have any signs of gingival recession, we may recommend gum surgery with PST™ to improve your smile. This is a minimally invasive procedure with a fast recovery time and patients enjoy immediate results. It can be an attractive alternative to traditional gum surgery because there is little to no trauma to the gum tissue.
Gingival Recession Treatment with PST™
The procedure for PST™ is fairly simple. We will create a very small opening in the gum tissue, near the area of recession, through which we will introduce specialized instruments to enable us to gently reposition the gum tissue over exposed root surfaces. Collagen strips will then be placed to hold the newly repositioned tissue while it heals. Results are immediate and recovery is insignificant. PST™ has proven to be a very effective treatment option for restoring receding gums and can improve your smile without extensive dental procedures. If you are looking for the most effective gingival recession treatment options in Arkansas, schedule your gum surgery consultation with Dr. Pierce Osborne, Dr. Michael Curry, and Dr. Wes Shelton today!
