Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
Individuals suffering from gum recession in Clearwater can turn to Dr. Dan Knellinger of Knellinger Dental Excellence. Dr. Knellinger now accepts patients from the Clearwater area, so any prospective patients in this area can now benefit from the many innovative treatment options that are available through Dr. Knellinger’s practice. One such treatment option is the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, which is a particularly effective option for patients with receding gums. This treatment option is not only effective, but it is also considered minimally invasive for patients undergoing the treatment.
Gum recession is most often associated with gum disease, which is incredibly prevalent in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 47 percent of adults suffer from some form of gum disease. Most of these individuals will not seek treatment, which can lead to a number of serious complications that include cardiovascular disease and cancer. Patients who are experiencing receding gums should seek treatment as quickly as possible so as to avoid these very serious consequences.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ does not require the doctor to use a scalpel or sutures during the course of the procedure, which is very appealing to prospective patients seeking treatment options for gum recession in Clearwater. A very small hole, along with specialized instruments, is used to perform the surgical technique. The doctor loosens the healthy gum tissue and moves it to the affected areas, which eliminates the need for grafting techniques and extended healing times.
Individuals affected by gum recession in Clearwater should contact the office of Dr. Knellinger if they wish to explore the treatment options that may be available to them. In order to determine a patient’s eligibility, it is necessary for an initial consultation to evaluate each patient on a case-by-case basis. If eligible, the patient can benefit from the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ offered by Dr. Knellinger and his practice. For patients suffering from receding gums, the availability of this minimally invasive technique should be very welcome news, as the technique is able to deliver immediate cosmetic results without the use of scalpels or sutures.
