During the holidays, most people focus on others. This is natural, but remember it’s important to take care of yourself as well. If your smile needs improvement, don’t wait until after the holidays to give it some love. Improving your smile and oral health is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and can help you enter the New Year with renewed confidence. If you’re one of the many people who live with uncomfortable and unsightly gum recession, consider giving yourself the gift of treatment with the minimally invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique. 
Symptoms of Gum Recession
Gum recession isn’t always obvious, especially if it’s located near the back of your mouth. However, if you’ve experienced the following symptoms, you may want to schedule a gum recession consultation with your periodontist in Larkspur, CA:
Increased tooth sensitivity
Appearance of elongated teeth
Exposed tooth roots
Tender, swollen gums
Loose teeth
Incidentally, some of the gum recession symptoms listed above are also symptoms of gum disease, so it’s important to schedule an appointment with your periodontist as soon as you notice them. 
How the Pinhole Surgical Technique Can Help
The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) restores the gum line in a minimally invasive manner. The procedure involves using a small hole to gain access to the receded gum tissue, then gently move it down over the tooth’s surface. You won’t need to receive stitches or worry about the pain of large incisions when you opt for this procedure. 
Schedule Your Appointment Today
If you’re tempted to delay treatment until long after the holidays are over, consider the fact that it’s typically easier to schedule an appointment during the holiday season. You can also reserve your appointment with Drs. Brand Ahn and Jay Salzman on workdays during your lunch break.
