Springfield, MO (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
Dr. Jody B. Vance offers a number of treatment options for patients suffering from gum recession in the Springfield area. While there are a number of factors that may result in receding gums, the presence of gum recession is often associated with gum disease. Given that periodontal disease has been linked to a number of potentially devastating conditions through recent studies, it is important that treatment is sought as soon as possible. For individuals seeking a minimally invasive option, Dr. Vance now offers the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ for the treatment of gum recession.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is an innovative solution for sufferers of receding gums, as the procedure does not require the doctor to use a scalpel or sutures. Instead, Dr. Vance is able to treat gum recession through the use of a small hole and special tools, loosening the gum tissue and moving it to the areas affected by recession. The procedure minimizes the amount of recovery and healing time that is necessary, and patients usually benefit from immediate cosmetic results. For patients looking for a minimally invasive treatment for gum recession in Springfield, MO, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ may be the optimal solution.
Gum disease has been and continues to be a major issue in the United States. According to a report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of gum disease in American adults is over 47 percent. While there are a number of individuals who are experiencing symptoms that include receding gums, there are far too many who do not seek treatment. Allowing gum disease and the symptoms of gum disease to go untreated may result in an increased risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease, pancreatic cancer, and diabetes. Given the severity of the potential outcomes and the minimally invasive nature of available procedures like the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, it is surprising that so many individuals neglect to treat their symptoms.
Current and prospective patients of Dr. Vance who are interested in exploring their options with regard to the treatment of gum recession in Springfield, MO should call the doctor’s office to schedule an appointment for consultation. Gum recession may be a sign of serious underlying issues, so it is very important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
