We understand that there can be some anxiety associated with the treatment of gum disease
. This is why our periodontal practice in Ormond Beach
uses leading edge technology to provide less invasive treatments to ensure our patients’ comfort.
One of the less invasive periodontal treatments offered at Ormond Beach Periodontics and Implant Dentistry is the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). The technique of using PST grafts was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, D.D.S, and offers an effective solution to treat receding gums without the need for incisions or sutures. By making a small pinhole in the gums, we are able to gently loosen gum tissue and carefully glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Because this is a less invasive periodontal treatment
, patients experience minimal discomfort and a quick recovery. In addition, most patients are pleasantly surprised with the instant cosmetic improvement that this treatment provides.
