Dr. Ryan Mendro now provides patients who have receding gums an alternative to undergoing a gum graft. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ provides a minimally invasive means of treatment for patients with receding gums in Orlando, FL. The procedure minimizes post-procedure side effects such as inflammation and bleeding, and patients can immediately enjoy the improved appearance of their gums and smiles.
When he performs PST™, Dr. Mendro only has to make a small hole in the gum tissue. Then, he uses a small instrument to reach through the incision, loosen the gum tissue, and gently move it down over the exposed area. The procedure does not call for any cutting with scalpels or suturing. A gum graft, in contrast, involves removing gum tissue from another part of the mouth and layering it beneath the gum tissue that has receded. Although gum grafts are effective and safe, patients may experience side effects such as pain, inflammation, and a slow healing time. Infection is also a risk with any invasive procedure. Since PST™ is minimally invasive, it greatly lowers the risk of complications.
Many patients may pursue treatment for receding gums in Orlando, FL, primarily because of cosmetic concerns, but there are many other reasons that treating gum recession is important. Gum recession leaves teeth vulnerable to harmful bacteria. If the gums recede far enough, the roots of the affected teeth may become exposed, causing pain and increasing the risk of infection or tooth loss. Gum recession can also lead to gaps between the teeth and gums, putting people at a higher risk of infections such as periodontal disease. This is why it is crucial for patients with receding gums to receive PST™.
For patients who notice mild gum recession, there are a few measures that can lower the risk of the condition becoming worse. Practicing gentle but effective oral hygiene and reducing tobacco use can help prevent gum recession. People who notice signs of gum recession are encouraged to visit Dr. Mendro to discuss treatments for receding gums in Orlando, FL.
