Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Dr. Raymond Kenzik, an Ormond Beach, FL periodontist, now offers a minimally invasive treatment alternative for repairing gum recession. As one of the first dental professionals in the country to undergo training for The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Dr. Kenzik is at the forefront of a completely new approach to gum recession treatment, spearheaded by its inventor, Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao.
Receding gums occur when the tissue surrounding the teeth begins to wear away, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth’s root. Gum recession causes periodontal pockets or gaps to form between the teeth and gum, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Gum recession affects people of all ages due to a multitude of reasons, including overly aggressive brushing, hormonal changes, grinding and clenching, and gum disease. Receding gums are often the first physical manifestation of periodontal disease. If left untreated, the infection will progress and severely damage the supporting tissue and bone structures, ultimately resulting in tooth loss.
Prior to The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, conventional gum grafting surgery was the only option available for restoring patients’ gum lines. This traditional gum recession treatment method necessitates cutting tissue from the palate and suturing it to the receded areas. Because gum grafting surgery is invasive, painful, and requires a recovery period for healing, doctors can only treat a couple of teeth in a single session. Consequently, it could take months or even years for a patient with significant recession to complete treatment using conventional gum grafting surgery.
With The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, treatment can be completed in a single session, which typically lasts between 20 minutes and an hour. Dr. Kenzik can treat multiple teeth simultaneously with Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ and each teeth takes only minutes to complete. In addition to minimal pain, bleeding, or swelling, most patients see an instant cosmetic improvement following the minimally invasive procedure.
When performing The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Dr. Kenzik creates a tiny pinhole near the receded areas. Using a patented dental instrument, he then gently guides the loosened tissue over the affected areas and back to a normal, healthy position. The last step entails placing tiny strips of collagen through the entry point under the gums to help keep them in place during the healing process. By the next day, the pinhole is almost undetectable and the point of entry quickly heals. Any mild swelling dissipates within a few days.
