Non-Invasive Gum Restoration
Dr. McCormick is certified to perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) for correcting receding gum lines. PST is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure. Through a small hole made by a needle, Dr. McCormick uses specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
