Treatment with PST™

If you have receding gums, Dr. Trujillo may recommend PST™ to restore your smile. This incision free procedure involves making a small hole in the gums through which he will gently reposition the gums over the area that has receded. Collagen strips are then placed to hold the tissue in place while healing. Many patients who undergo this procedure are surprised at how painless this procedure is and great the results are. PST™ could be just what you need to restore the gum line and achieve a beautiful new smile.

Treating Gum Recession with PST™

Receding gums can be restored with a minimally invasive procedure that does not damage healthy tissue. Many people experience receding gums when they are using the wrong brushing technique, if they have gum disease, or if they engage in grinding the teeth. Traditional gum surgery and other procedures can wear away healthy tissue during the treatment process. PST™ can be an attractive alternative to the traditional gum grafting procedure because it is a noninvasive procedure and does not require cutting away any gum tissue.

If you are concerned about gum recession, PST™ may be the treatment option for you in Merced, CA. To learn more about effective gum restoration procedures, schedule your consultation for receding gums with Dr. Trujillo today!
