Southfield, MI (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
Periodontist, Dr. Joseph Nemeth now offers patients in the Detroit, MI area with receding gums, treatment using The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This treatment is minimally invasive and treats gum recession without surgery. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is usually incision-free and suture-free, meaning minimal bleeding, swelling or pain for the patient.
Gum recession is common and takes place gradually, and can be caused by a number of factors such as periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, or genetics. It occurs when gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away, and exposes more of the tooth or the root. Many patients complain of increased sensitivity, and notice one tooth that looks longer than normal. If left untreated gum recession can cause tooth decay, bone loss or tissue damage.
Using The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ Dr. Nemeth can help treat gum recession in the Detroit, MI area by creating a small hole in the gums, where special instruments are used to loosen the gum tissue and guide it where it is most needed. After the procedure most patients have minimal discomfort, and generally have a faster recovery time than patients undergoing traditional gum grafting surgery. Unlike the traditional method, there are typically no incisions or sutures needed and multiple teeth can be treated at once.
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ was created and patented by Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao. It requires specially designed tools that can bring the gum line back to its original position, without cutting the tissue.
