Treating Gum Recession With PST™

PST™ was developed by a dentist and is now considered to be an attractive alternative to gum grafting. If you have receding gums because you have been using the wrong tooth brushing technique, as a result of gum disease, or from other factors, you may need to undergo a procedure to restore the gum line.

The PST™ procedure for gum rejuvenation involves the creation of a small opening in the gum tissue near the area of recession. Through this opening, patented instruments are introduced that enable us to move the gum tissue into a more favorable position on the tooth. Collagen strips are then used to hold the tissue in place as it goes through the short healing process.

PST™ can be performed on multiple teeth in a single visit. Patients enjoy immediate cosmetic benefits and a fast healing time. There is no bleeding or swelling involved, so most patients end up going back to their regular schedule after their visit.

We can help you achieve a more attractive and healthier smile with PST™. Learn more about incision free gum rejuvenation procedures by scheduling your consultation with Dr. Fard and Dr. Dary. Contact our office in Oakley, CA for more information on gum recession treatment today.
