About Gum Recession
Gum recession is one of the many side effects and outcomes of periodontal disease. Some people develop receding gums because they are using the wrong tooth brushing technique, have a habit of grinding or clenching their teeth, or they are neglecting their oral hygiene. If you have a misaligned bite or have tongue piercings, you may also experience some degree of gum recession. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) is a minimally-invasive treatment that can restore the gum line without incisions, bleeding, and sutures.
