Receding Gums Surgery in San Francisco

If you have noticed your teeth are looking longer than normal or your gum line has receded significantly over the course of a few months or years, you may need to undergo a gum-rejuvenation procedure to restore your smile. Aging is commonly associated with gum recession, but receding gums are actually the result of unintentional wear on the teeth and gums, gum disease, and teeth grinding habits.

You might be a candidate for gum recession treatment with PST™ if you have:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Bruxism
  • Aggressive brushing habits
  • Teeth that appear longer than normal
  • Daily habits that wear down the teeth

If you have gum disease, you may have lost a significant amount of gum tissue, which has exposed the root surfaces of the teeth. PST™ can restore the gum line to create a more attractive and healthier smile. To receive gum-disease treatment or if you think you may be a good candidate for a gum-rejuvenation procedure, schedule your consultation with Dr. Pihur today.
