Braintree, MA (PRWEB) April 05, 2014
Dr. Thomas Mone, a periodontist in Braintree, MA at Mone Periodontics, now offers an advanced surgical method to combat gum recession called Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). The minimally invasive procedure consists of a small hole in the gums and special tools to loosen the tissue. The healthy gum tissue is then slid over areas of recession where it heals quickly for a healthy new smile.
Some causes of gum recession include gum disease, improper brushing technique, teeth grinding patterns and side effects of medications. Dr. Mone utilizes this breakthrough technique that offers hope to patients with gum loss. The PST™ allows patients to receive treatment on multiple teeth in a single visit and to recover rapidly after the minimally invasive procedure.
The dangers of advanced gum recession include risk of tooth loss, root damage and eventual changes to the look of the face. Lost teeth cause the facial muscle structure to sag in areas over the long term. Beyond cosmetic issues, some studies have linked gum disease to other serious health risks, including cancers, heart disease and increased risk of stroke.
