What Can I Expect With PST?
Dr. Bradd Yoshioka may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) if you have receding gums because of periodontal disease,
teeth grinding habits, or because of tobacco usage. To
perform this procedure, Dr. Yoshioka makes a small hole using special instruments
and loosens the gum tissue so he can move it to areas where the gums are
receding. This treatment process is relatively simple and can be very effective
for restoring the gum line without surgery. Dr. Yoshioka can perform this procedure
on one or several teeth in a single visit and patients can enjoy immediate cosmetic
benefits. Healing time is much shorter than traditional gum surgery and there
is minimal or no bleeding or pain.
