Frequently Asked Questions About Gum Recession Surgery in Indianapolis

What is PST™?

PST™ is a minimally invasive treatment that allows Dr. Behner to restore gum levels through a small opening in the gum tissue, eliminating the need for incisions and sutures.

Who Needs PST™?

Patients with receding gums are candidates for gum recession surgery.
Anyone experiencing gum recession can benefit from PST™. Even if gum levels have not exposed the tooth root, they may have eroded to the point where the aesthetic of your smile is compromised. PST™ can quickly restore the health and youthful appearance of the gums.

How is the Procedure Performed?

PST™ is performed through a pinhole sized opening created in the gum tissue. A unique dental tool is implemented to loosen the gum tissue enough to pull it over the exposed area. The tissue is then held in place with collagen while it permanently heals in its new position.

Does PST™ Gum Recession Surgery Cost More Than Other Options?

This type of gum recession surgery costs roughly the same as gum grafting procedures. However, due to the fact that PST™ can treat multiple sites in a single visit while gum grafting requires multiple visits for the treatment of multiple sites, PST™ gum recession costs may be reduced for those who need extensive treatment.

Does PST™ Treat Periodontal Disease?

PST™ treats gum recession, which is a known side effect of gum disease. If you are experiencing the symptoms of gum disease, you will need to schedule treatment for your infection with Dr. Behner before PST™ can be performed.

    Jeanie M.

    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.

    —Leslee D.

    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!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!
