Lexington, KY (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
Dr. Reid Nelson and Dr. Doug Lowy of Nelson & Lowy, PSC are working to meet the growing need for effective and minimally invasive treatment options for receding gums and gum disease, as the doctors now accept patients from the Lexington area. Through this service area expansion, Drs. Nelson and Lowy are hoping to reduce the incidence of gum recession in Lexington and other areas. One treatment option that is available through the doctors’ practice is an innovative procedure known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This treatment option is not only minimally invasive, but it is also an effective and expedient option.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly half (47 percent) of all American adults are dealing with some form of gum disease. Since receding gums are one of the most common signs of this affliction, it is likely that individuals experiencing this symptom may also be at risk for the many serious conditions that are linked to gum disease, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. While some of the individuals suffering from gum recession in Lexington are indeed afflicted with gum disease, others may be experiencing this issue due to improper brushing, side effects of certain medications, or other gum surgery procedures. In any case, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is able to rectify the issue of gum recession in a minimally invasive manner.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is not considered very invasive due to the fact that there is no need for scalpels or sutures throughout the process. The doctor uses a very small hole and specialized instruments in order to loosen the gum tissue. This loosened tissue is then moved to the areas that are experiencing gum recession. In this way, cosmetic results are achieved instantly and the patient experiences minimal discomfort.
Individuals who are interested in treating their receding gums through the use of the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ should call the office of Nelson & Lowy, PSC at (502) 653-8185 to make an appointment for consultation, or visit their website at http://www.louisvilleperio.com/ for more information. This treatment option for patients experiencing gum recession in Lexington is considered exceptionally effective and minimally invasive, which should be welcome news to anyone who is dealing with the issue of gum recession.
