Gum Grafting vs Pinhole Surgical Technique

Faster Results with The Pinhole Surgical Technique™: A Gum Grafting Alternative in Indianapolis

If you suffer from gum recession, immediate treatment may be necessary to prevent irreversible damage to your teeth. Traditionally, the treatment recommended to reverse receding gums has been gum grafting, a surgery that transfers gum tissue from one area of the mouth to the treatment site. However, the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), a minimally invasive procedure, can restore your gum levels with minimal discomfort and downtime. With PST™, existing gum lines are raised or lowered to desired levels with the aid of unique dental tools. If you want to reverse receding gums, schedule a consultation with Dr. Dale Behner for the PST™ gum grafting alternative in Fishers, IN. PST™ offers numerous advantages over gum grafting procedures, including the following:

  • No incisions or sutures
  • Immediate results
  • Fast recovery
  • Multiple sites treated in one session
  • No need for additional surgical sites

Benefits of the PST™ Gum Grafting Alternative in Fishers, IN

No Incisions or Sutures

PST™ is performed without the use of scalpels. Dr. Behner will create an opening in the gum tissue at the treatment site, loosening the tissue until it slides over the tooth root to reverse receding gums. Grafts, conversely, require that tissue be collected from a donor site and then sutured to cover the recession.

Immediate Results

A gum graft must be given time to heal, integrating with the tissue at the site. PST™, on the other hand, delivers an instantly improved appearance.

Fast Recovery

Without a surgical wound or incisions to care for, PST™ patients can enjoy a speedier recovery than those who opt for a gum graft to reverse receding gums.

Multiple Sites Treated in One Session

No Need for Additional Surgical Sites

Unlike grafting procedures, PST™ does not require a second surgical site for the collection of donor tissue, which also reduces recovery time.

PST™ offers numerous advantages over traditional gum grafting procedures. Contact Dr. Behner in Fishers today for your consultation to reverse receding gums. He and his staff are happy to go over the benefits of the procedure if you are in the Indianapolis area, from Fishers to Carmel!

I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

Cindy M.

My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!
