You need to have healthy gums in order to have healthy teeth. Therefore, if your gums are receding, they’ll need to be treated at a Baldwin periodontal office right away. If gum recession is left untreated, it will eventually lead and worse condition and ultimately; tooth loss. Fortunately, it is treatable and can be treated with soft tissue grafts.
In the past, if you needed gum recession treatment for advanced gum recession at a Baldwin periodontal office, you would need to undergo invasive, uncomfortable surgical procedures. Invasive surgery wasn’t an options; it used to be required to treat advanced gum recession. The good news is, that has changed, and today, due to advancements in the field of dentistry. There is now a breakthrough treatment available called the Pinhole Surgical Technique. It is a minimally invasive treatment option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting technique, Pinhole Surgical Technique or PST does not require any incisions whatsoever. The procedure is much better for patients because it’s scalpel-free and suture-free. This revolutionary technique that was invented and patented by John Chao, DDS is advantageous to patients. Some of the many benefits it offers include: minimized patient discomfort after treatment, a faster recovery time for patients compared to traditional grafting, no use of comfortable sutures, no use of scalpels or other invasive tools necessary, doesn’t require donor tissue from the patient’s palate, and exceptional, natural-looking, long-lasting results. It is especially beneficial to patients who have dental or surgery anxiety. If you suffer from gum recession, you should consider the Pinhole Surgical Technique as a potential solution. The first step you need to take is to contact an experienced, professional dentist like ours at Dental Implants & Periodontology of Rockville Center to set up a consultation and evaluation.
