When a patient suffers from gum recession, they’re often worried about undergoing treatment for fear of pain, swelling, and missing too much time from work. Often, these patients decided to simply live with their unsightly black triangles and exposed roots -- simply because they were too fearful of the proposed treatment.
But that’s no longer a concern, because Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka is trained and certified in the Chao's Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), which is a minimally-invasive alternative for treating gum recession.
With this groundbreaking procedure, our patients experience far less pain, swelling, and discomfort -- and enjoy a fasting healing process.
Conventional gum grafting requires cutting tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth, cutting and lifting the gums, and attaching the new tissue with sutures. It’s an invasive procedure with a fair amount of discomfort and a long healing period.
With this new technique, there’s absolutely no cutting, no stitching, no sutures, and no harvesting tissue from the palate. Using a tiny pinhole, Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka is able to use specially-designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the recessed part of the tooth.
It’s quick, easy, and gives the patient an instant cosmetic improvement.
If you have gum recession and you’re ready to address it, please contact Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka today to learn more about this life-changing procedure.
