PST™ Gum Recession Surgery in Matthews, NC

If you have gum recession, Dr. Green may recommend PST™ to restore your gum line. This is an incision free procedure that involves loosening existing gum tissue and repositioning it over the areas that have gum recession. It is a minimally invasive procedure and can be very effective for restoring your smile.

Treating Gum Recession With PST™

This innovative, patented procedure for treating gum recession was invented by a dentist, Dr. John Chao. Receding gums can take away from the beauty of your smile and may make you self-conscious about your appearance. Unlike traditional gum grafting procedures, there is no cutting of the tissue involved so the recovery and healing time is very short.

  • Gum disease
  • Incorrect tooth brushing technique
  • Genetic predisposition to developing receding gums
  • Hormonal fluctuations
