The Farber Center for Periodontics utilizes the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), an advanced, minimally invasive technique for root coverage that is often needed due to gum recession.

Gum recession is a common dental problem that occurs over time. Gum recession causes more exposure of the tooth or the tooth’s root. Gum recession is an indication of an underlying issue and should be treated accordingly.

Traditional surgery that requires a large incision using a scalpel may require multiple visits with longer appointment times.

PST uses very small pinholes with special instruments. Those instruments are inserted through the pinhole to separate and loosen the tissue. The periodontist then mobilizes the tissue and uses it to cover the exposed roots. Collagen strips are placed under the soft tissue to help stabilize that tissue.

PST Offers You 3 Significant Advantages:

1

No Cutting, Stitching, or Sutures

Patients are amazed that the procedure is so simple and that recovery is so fast. Patients often only take Ibuprofen after the procedure and quickly resume normal activities.

2

Great Time-Saver

In the past, conventional root coverage procedures for different areas of the mouth, or an entire arch, required multiple visits. With PST, you can have root coverage in multiple areas in just one visit. Having one procedure rather than several to treat an arch is a great time-saver for you.

3

Its So Simple

Traditional gum grafts involve either using cadaver tissue or taking tissue from the roof of the mouth and thus creating another area that has to heal. With PST the roots are covered without cadaver tissue or an incision in the roof of your mouth. The procedure is truly a breakthrough that benefits you.
