If you have receding  gums but have avoided treatment because you’ve heard how painful it is, there may hope. Dr. Rick Glassman, DDS and co-director of the California Health and Longevity Institute in Westlake Village tells us about a breakthrough in dentistry called the “Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique or PST.”

There are only 200 dentists in the world trained to do this procedure and Glassman is one of them.  To see more of what he’s explaining, check out the KCAL show “The Doctors.”

The Doctors are joined by Rocio, who recently underwent a new procedure to correct her receding gums. Watch as Dr. John Chao performs the receding gum lift procedure on Rocio.This video contains footage from a live surgical procedure. Viewer discretion is advised.
