Dr. Reid Nelson and Dr. Doug Lowy of Nelson & Lowy, PSC offer gum recession treatment for Jeffersontown area patients who may be dealing with issues relating to receding gums. Commonly caused by periodontal disease, gum recession can also be caused by a number of other factors as well. Regardless of the cause, Dr. Nelson and Dr. Lowy are able to offer a number of treatment options, including the use of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This is an effective option for patients seeking a minimally invasive procedure to rectify the issue of gum recession, one which does not require the use of an incision or of sutures.
Receding gums and gum disease in general is a common affliction in the United States, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that over 47 percent of all American adults suffer from some form of gum disease. With the prevalence of gum disease being so high, the need for an effective and minimally invasive gum recession treatment for Jeffersontown residents, as many Americans fail to seek treatment despite the presence of many symptoms of gum disease. This may be the result of a hesitancy to undergo traditional procedures, but the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ does not result in any of the swelling, bleeding, or pain that is sometimes attributed to gum surgery.
In addition to the fact that the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is minimally invasive, Dr. Nelson and Dr. Lowy note that this technique also results in immediate cosmetic benefits, along with a quick recovery and healing time. While the presence of receding gums may cause pain and discomfort to patients suffering from gum disease, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is available as a solution to correct gum recession effectively and without the use of a scalpel or sutures.
