There’s nothing quite so comparable to the uninvited sensation you feel, when ice cream or cold drinks come in contact with your sensitive teeth. Sept. 1 marks the start of National Self-Improvement Month, so rather than grimacing in every occasion where you ingest cold items, consider taking a stand against tooth sensitivity by inquiring about your ideal candidacy, for what is known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

Designed and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., PST™ is a great treatment option for the many residents in and around the Fort Lauderdale area, who suffer from sensitive teeth caused by receding gums. Should you choose to undergo the process, Dr. Thomas K. McCawley, D.D.S., or Dr. Mark N. McCawley, D.M.D., will make a small incision in your gums using a needle. They will then reposition your gum tissue so that it covers any exposed areas caused by recession, minimizing discomfort and reducing sensitivity to cold foods.

PST™ Perks

The PST™ offers many benefits to patients in addition to an improved smile and reduced tooth sensitivity. The process is quick and minimally invasive by design, because no actual cutting or suturing of your gums is necessary. This means of recovery for the patient proves to be expedited and relatively painless for the patient. Additionally, the results of the PST™ are apparent immediately after your visit, ensuring that waiting weeks or even months, no longer becomes necessary to reap the rewards. Another vital benefit of the PST™ proves to be its convenience, with the capacity to be performed in only one visit, even if multiple areas of your mouth require treatment.

Considering the PST™? Contact the McCauley Center for Laser Periodontics and Implants Today

While our professional periodontists will assess your candidacy for a sensitive teeth remedy, using the PST™, the patients who most often benefit from this method are generally affected by gum recession, but otherwise maintain relatively normal oral health care. Each situation is different, however, so a consultation is necessary to start the self-improvement process this September.
