Have you noticed a change in your smile? Do your teeth feel more sensitive to hot/cold foods or when brushing? Gum recession is a common concern among many patients and happens when the gumline recedes to a lower position on the teeth. This can expose the root surface, causing pain, sensitivity and damage to the supporting bone and tissue structures. Dr. Marko Kamel is part of a select group of dentists certified to correct gum recession with both traditional gum grafting and the new, minimally-invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™). These procedures can not only improve your appearance and reduce symptoms, they can protect your smile from decay and gum disease.
Do you notice any of these signs and symptoms?

Gum Grafting and PST™ Treatment Options
Dr. Kamel is highly skilled at repairing gum recession through both traditional gum grafting techniques and the cutting-edge Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), depending on your unique situation. He also offers sedation options in combination with these procedures for those anxious or fearful of dental care. Gum grafting typically utilizes tissue from within the patient’s own mouth, which is applied to cover root surfaces in areas of recession. PST works by gently moving the receded gum line to a more favorable position on the tooth.
