PST Can Correct Recession, No Matter its Cause
Receding gums happen when the gums pull away from the teeth, revealing more of the tooth and its roots. It commonly causes sensitivity and makes the teeth appear longer than the others. Gum recession may be caused by:
- Gum disease
- Brushing too aggressively
- Trauma to the gums
While many believe seeking treatment for gum recession is unnecessary, recession can lead to decay, extreme sensitivity and tooth loss if left to progress. Many of our patients fear undergoing surgery to correct recession, but at Canal Calem Periodontics we offer a virtually pain-free alternative to traditional gum grafting surgery, the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™).
