Highland, MI (PRWEB) July 07, 2014
Dr. James E. LoCascio of Highland Advanced Dental Care performs the new Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). As a dentist in Highland, MI who continually seeks education on cutting edge techniques, Dr. LoCascio embraces the benefits this procedure offers his patients. PST™ combats gum recession as an effective alternative to gum surgery. Recession is a common problem throughout the United States, but with the help of PST™, Dr. LoCascio offers real solutions to all those who suffer from the negative cosmetic and oral effects of recession.
PST™ is the latest treatment available for gum recession, and Dr. LoCascio is happy to help patients by offering this highly effective alternative to gum surgery. He replaces traditional gum surgery with this treatment, which removes the need for painful gum grafts and long healing times. Rather than utilize incisions and sutures to treat gum recession, Dr. LoCascio creates only a small opening in the affected gums. He repositions the gums into healthy locations on the teeth, and patients return to their normal activities with only minor discomfort. No longer must patients dread pain and swelling when they see their dentist in Highland, MI for gum recession problems.
Approximately half of US adults suffer from gum recession due to a wide variety of causes. Yet, the fact that it is common does not mean that recession is not serious. The enamel that protects teeth does not cover their roots, making patients with recession vulnerable to decay and damage. As gum recession progresses, teeth become highly sensitive because their roots are no longer protected. Eating and brushing become painful enough that diet and hygiene are both affected. If left untreated, the problem often worsens until further dental treatment is necessary for all affected teeth. As serious as these health problems are, it is often the cosmetic problems associated with recession that lead many to seek help from a dentist in Highland, MI. Many people are embarrassed by their smiles because exposed roots are yellowish or darker in color.
Dr. LoCascio recommends that anyone interested in learning more about PST™ as an alternative to gum surgery visit his website or contact his office by phone. He is excited about this procedure now available to patients and is happy to educate patients on their treatment options.
