PST™: Today's Preferred Gum Surgery
Treating gum recession is comfortable and faster than ever before with PST™ from Dr. Richter. Traditional treatments, like tissue grafting, can be uncomfortable and take up to several treatments. But with the patented PST™, you can enjoy healthier, more attractive gums in just one office visit.
Why Patients Choose Gum Surgery:
Receding gums are often a sign of gum disease, a bacterial infection that attacks bone and healthy gum tissue, causing it to pull away from the roots of the teeth. When this happens, the gum line starts to look smaller and teeth may appear misshaped and often feel more sensitive. Treating gum disease itself can also lead to recession if scalpel gum surgery is performed – which is one reason Dr. Richter recommends laser gum surgery for periodontal disease. Other factors that may cause a need for corrective gum surgery for recession include chronic tooth grinding, orthodontic treatment, genetics, hormones, and certain lifestyle choices like smoking.
How to Replace Lost Gum Tissue:
PST™ is an innovative and minimally invasive way to perform gum surgery today. Dr. Richter is one of few periodontists in the region who is fully trained and experienced in providing this patented treatment for patients seeking alternatives to traditional gum grafting. Unlike tissue grafts, which require cutting soft tissue away from other areas in the mouth or sourcing it from a tissue bank and suturing the material to the gum line, PST™ makes it possible to do all of the reconstructive treatment right at the recession site without scalpels or sutures. Dr. Richter uses patented dental tools to create a very small hole on the gum line and then loosens the tissue and stretches it over the exposed tooth roots. This method is safe, efficient, and causes only minimal discomfort and bleeding, so Dr. Richter can usually repair the entire gum line in just one office visit. Healing from PST™ gum surgery is quick and comfortable.
