Restore Your Gumline
with Minimally-Invasive PST™

If your gums have started to wear away or you have significant gum recession, you may be self-conscious or concerned about your smile. While slight gum recession is manageable, moderate to severe recession should be addressed to improve aesthetics and oral health. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) is a breakthrough treatment that restores the gum line without any synthetic grafts. We use your own gum tissue to re-balance the gum line and the entire procedure is minimally-invasive and performed in our office.

Benefits of the
Pinhole Surgical Technique

Even though it’s described as a surgery, PST™ does not involve any surgical cutting of the tissue or sutures. Our doctor uses special tools to gently pull guide gum tissue over areas with recession which reshapes the gum line. Key benefits of this procedure include:

  • Minimally-invasive treatment
  • Minimal bleeding and discomfort
  • No grafts
  • No cutting of the gum tissue
  • Fast recovery
  • Minimal downtime
  • Immediate results

The Proof is in Our Patients

What to Expect With PST™

Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure, the gums will start to heal immediately after treatment. Most patients see instant results which is why this is such a popular treatment. There is minimal bleeding, swelling, and puffiness to worry about and we will give you post-op instructions to ensure a fast recovery. If you don’t have the time to undergo traditional gum grafting surgery, PST™ may be the ideal treatment for you.
