John Chao D.D.S. invented and patented PST™, a minimally invasive technique, and has been training dentists all over the world to be able to save their patients’ teeth and gums with this innovative treatment. Receding gums are a sign of periodontal disease but can also be caused by other factors such as aggressive tooth brushing, hormonal changes, bruxism (teeth grinding), crooked teeth, and oral piercings. Whatever the reason, you should seek treatment immediately if you have receding gums. Your gums will not grow back by themselves and you will need the help of Dr. Subka to restore your mouth to optimal oral health.

Dr. Subka Shares Gum Grafting vs Pinhole Surgical Technique in Thousand Oaks, CA

Comfortable and Effective

With PST™, Dr. Subka will make sure the area to be treated is numb to ensure a comfortable visit. A small ‘pinhole’ is made in the gums, through which special instruments are used to loosen and position your gum tissue to cover the areas of recession. Collagen strips are inserted for healing. Patients receive immediate cosmetic benefits and can often return to their daily routine. Unlike traditional gum recession surgery, there are no large incisions, no stitches, and no second surgical site.
