January 16th is National Without Scalpel Day. In honor of this special day, Dr. Singh, a periodontist in Chicago, IL, is encouraging everyone to learn more about the Chao Pinhole™ Surgical Technique, which is also commonly referred to as PST™ and how it can benefit their oral health and lives.

How Is the Chao Pinhole™ Surgical Technique Performed

Many people who suffer from gum disease and have receding gums are good candidates for PST™. It is a dental procedure that can be used to reverse the effects of gum recession. Previously, people who suffered from gum disease and gum recession only had the option of undergoing traditional gum grafting surgery. Although this method is very successful, many people tend to avoid it because they do not enjoy the thought of having their gums operated on with a scalpel. Now that PST™ is available, there is no need for gum disease and recession suffers to fear the knife anymore.

PST™ offer patients many benefits, including:

  • No scalpels
  • No sutures
  • Less bleeding
  • Minimally invasive
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Less treatment time
  • No grafts

During the procedure, the periodontist uses a special needle to make a tiny hole in your gums. He then gently loosens and expands the area so he can readjust the tissue to cover any exposed roots, thus eliminating the appearance of elongated teeth. Many patients who receive PST™ have a much better treatment experience than patients who undergo traditional treatment options. They are also able to enjoy longer lasting results and a healthier looking smile.

Although this procedure can be highly beneficial for most people, it is not ideal for everyone. To determine if you can benefit from having the procedure, you will need to have a comprehensive periodontal exam done by a periodontist in Chicago, IL.

Use National Without a Scalpel Day as your motivation to contact Periodontal Implant Associates at (630) 233-9278 to make an appointment for a periodontal exam and PST™ consultation with Dr. Singh.
