Little Silver, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Dr. Bruce Bilow now offers his patients a new procedure known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ for the treatment of gum recession in Little Silver, NJ. This procedure offers the same cosmetic and oral health benefits as a gum graft, which is the most common treatment for receding gums. However, PST™ is only minimally invasive, so patients can expect to experience reduced pain and a quicker recovery time.
It is important that people with receding gums seek treatment because of the risks associated with gum recession. When the gums recede, the roots become exposed and are at a significantly higher risk of developing decay. Gum recession is often caused by periodontal disease, which has various adverse effects. Periodontal disease can damage bone and gum tissue, ultimately resulting in teeth being lost and jaw bone density decreasing. Research has also shown that gum disease is associated with a higher risk of various systemic health problems. Visiting Dr. Bilow for treatment of gum recession in Little Silver, NJ can help people suffering from gum disease and receding gums protect their oral and even general health.
PST™ may appeal to many patients because it minimizes discomfort and tissue trauma. Dr. Bilow does not have to use a scalpel or relocate any tissue when he performs the procedure. Instead, he uses an instrument to make a very small hole in the gum tissue that has receded. He then inserts a special instrument to carefully loosen the gum tissue until he can slide it into a healthier position. Patients usually have a quick recovery following the procedure, since no sutures are placed and very little tissue is exposed to potential infections.
Dr. Bilow encourages his patients to schedule a consultation regarding treatment for gum recession in Little Silver, NJ if they notice changes in the health or appearance of their gums. People with receding gums may see visible changes in the gum line, or they may notice increased tooth sensitivity or pain. People who experience these symptoms should seek treatment early to protect their teeth and lower the risk of further oral complications. Anyone who needs to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bilow may do so through his website or by calling his office.
