A Visit for PST™ Receding Gums Treatment in Independence, OH
When you visit Dr. Bilski for PST™, he will begin the gum recession surgery by making a small opening in the gum tissue near the exposed tooth. A special dental tool is then inserted and used to loosen the connective tissue that holds your gum tissue in place. This tissue is then moved to the desired position and is held in place with a small amount of collagen material, encouraging attachment in the new position. Dr. Bilski can then perform this technique on other areas of exposed teeth, as any number of teeth may be treated in a single appointment. You will leave our office with a healthier and more beautiful smile.
PST™ offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum recession surgery. With a gum grafting procedure, for example, there are two surgical sites, a treatment site and a donor tissue site. This need for two sites also limits the number of areas that may be treated in one session. In addition, PST™ delivers faster recovery and reduced bleeding and inflammation when compared with traditional gum recession surgery, allowing our patients to enjoy greater convenience and comfort.
You no longer need to avoid gum recession surgery due to the anticipation of an uncomfortable experience. Contact Dr. Bilski today to schedule your consultation for PST™ in Independence, OH.
