Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Residents who have a “toothy smile” due to gum recession in Winter Park can now choose a method free of cuts and stitches as a way of treating the problem thanks to periodontists Dr. Richard Chace, Jr., Dr. Rodney F. Horvat, and Dr. Scott G. Cohen. These doctors are among the first professionals to offer the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) as a way of reversing the look and impact of receding gums to improve cosmetic appearance and prevent against tooth loss and other dental problems.
Receding gums can be caused by many things including gum disease which leads to bone loss, overly aggressive brushing of teeth, poor preventative dental care, and teeth grinding. The presence of lip or tongue piercings and hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, or menopause can also influence gum recession in Winter Park patients. A receding gum line can be of cosmetic concern to patients, and understandably so. However, its effects can be even more serious, as lack of sufficient gum tissue around the teeth may prevent proper stabilization for teeth and lead to eventual tooth loss. If sufficient gum and bone tissue are not present to support teeth, the chances for implants to be used as replacements is reduced.
Jaw bone needs either teeth or implant posts to keep it stimulated and healthy. When neither of these is present, the bone eventually resorbs, which essentially means it erodes away. The face will take on a sunken sort of shape and both speech and eating can be hampered. Treating receding gums is one way to help prevent against these serious problems. PST™ gives residents with gum recession in Winter Park a way to combat against these effects without needing to endure lengthy, painful surgeries. With the use of specialized instruments, a portion of gum tissue can be stretched over exposed tooth roots to provide the right level of support and coverage. No cuts and no sutures are needed and recovery time is minimal.
Winter Park residents who are concerned about their cosmetic appearance and overall dental health should contact Dr. Richard Chace, Jr., Dr. Rodney F. Horvat, and Dr. Scott G. Cohen to learn more about treatment for receding gums and how PST™ may be able to help them.
