Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gum line, exposing the root of the tooth. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth and bruxism (grinding teeth). When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth will become exposed, making your teeth more sensitive and prone to decay. Healthy gums are essential in maintaining a healthy mouth and due to Dr. Shokri’s keen focus on preventative treatment, she tends to target the gums as soon as signs and symptoms of abnormalities are noticeable.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is an incision and suture free alternative. All of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique were created by Dr. John Chao, who trained Dr. Shokri. In order to be considered as a candidate, patients need to be evaluated for the appropriate method of treatment.
There are many benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique:
Dr. Shokri was one of the first groups of doctors that were trained by Dr. Chao for pinhole surgery using his technique when it was first introduced. This has given Dr. Shokri an advantageous edge, coupled with her extensive background in cosmetic dentistry and gum treatment, to be one of the pioneers of this field.
I love this place, i was recommended by a friend of mines, The vip experience they deliver is epic.... Very caring and attentive, and super clean i love the staff specially the dentist.... Cant wait to go back
Dr Shokri has been my dentist for 17 years. When I first started seeing her she had an office in Brentwood. Even though it now takes me sometimes an hour to drive to see her, I cannot imagine seeing another dentist. She is caring & professional & has a gentle touch. Highly recommended!!!!
Just had a crown and two cavities filled. Both Dr. Shokri and Sami are extremely professional and friendly. My two hour appointment went flawless. I highly recommend Dr. Shokri for any dental procedure you need as she is one of the best dentist I ever had worked on my teeth.
