Dr. Wehle and Dr. Chao, Inventor of PST
There are several things that could be causing your receding gums. Some factors could be out of your hands while others can be easily identified and managed with proper oral hygiene techniques and healthy lifestyle habits. Whatever the cause for your receding gums, a gum rejuvenation treatment should be high on your priority list! Dr. Danielle Wehle offers her patients receding gums treatment in San Jose, CA.
Without their protective gum tissue surrounding them, your teeth are at a much higher risk for sensitivity, decay, and periodontal disease. Dr. Wehle is trained and certified to provide her patients the unique gum rejuvenation treatment known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). PST™ is a ‘breakthrough’ technique invented by John Chao D.D.S. that is a much less invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. With PST™ Dr. Wehle does not have to make large incisions, use stitches, or take any tissue from a second surgical site!
Before treatment Dr. Wehle will ensure the area to receive the gum rejuvenation is properly numb allowing for the most comfortable experience possible. A small ‘pinhole’ is made in the gum tissue and special instruments are used to loosen and pull down viable gum tissue over the areas of recession. Collagen strips are placed to encourage healing and an immediate cosmetic result can be seen before you even leave the chair! Many patients can even resume their daily routine shortly after leaving the office.
