What is Gum
Gum recession is when the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth, exposing the sensitive tooth roots and compromising the health of your teeth. Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons, including gum disease, aggressive toothbrushing, oral trauma or teeth grinding and clenching. Without treating gum recession, your teeth are at risk of damage or even tooth loss. Dr. Brand Ahn offers our patients the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) as a form of minimally invasive gum recession treatment. PST can restore your gumline without the need for sutures, grafts or bleeding.
