What Causes Gum Recession?
There are many dental issues that can cause gum recession, including:
- Periodontal disease.
- Genetic predisposition.
- Aggressive tooth brushing.
- Inadequate or insufficient preventive care.
- Hormonal fluctuations caused by puberty, pregnancy or menopause.
- Teeth grinding or clenching.
- Crooked teeth or a misaligned bite.
- Body piercing in the lip or tongue.

Why Gingival Recession Happens
Gum recession can result from genetic issues, bruxism, health problems, lifestyle habits, and previous dental treatment. However, it is usually symptomatic of gum disease. Gum disease is caused by bacteria that proliferate under the gum line and between the teeth. Without professional treatment, the gum tissue can start to recede, leaving less coverage for sensitive tooth roots.
Tooth root exposure can be painful and unsightly but it also puts teeth in danger of root decay or damage. If you do have gum disease, Dr. Penhaskashi can address it first with gentle laser therapy before your gingival recession treatment.
Treatment for Periodontitis
Tissue grafting with the PST™ procedure does not require transplanting any tissue to the recession areas—all of the treatment is performed on the gum line instead, with the addition of collagen, special biomaterial, and plasma fibrin with stem cells.
Small, negligible holes are made near the recession areas and tools are used to loosen the tissue and pull it over the roots. The process makes it possible for gums to heal, regenerate, and grow without stitches. Patients with gingival recession see beautiful results the same day.
