Pasadena, TX (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
Patients in Pasadena, TX can now benefit from an innovative gum recession treatment when they visit Dr. J. Robert Friedberg, a leading periodontist in the area. Dr. Friedberg uses the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to quickly restore gums after they have begun receding. This incision-free procedure involves no suturing or cutting, and offers patients an alternative to traditional gum recession surgery.
Gum recession can result from many factors, including genetic predisposition, misaligned bite, grinding or clenching of the jaw, periodontal disease, and crooked teeth. When this occurs, gums can look lengthened and the teeth can be at an increased risk for sensitivity, tooth damage and eventually tooth loss if the condition reaches its most serious levels. When teeth are lost, the jaw no longer receives proper stimulation from the teeth and serious complications can arise, including additional lost teeth, erosion of the jawbone, and residual issues with eating and speaking.
When many Pasadena patients realize their smiles are being affected by recession, they often put off seeing a periodontist or receiving gum recession treatment because they fear getting traditional gum surgery and the side effects that usually follow. However, when Dr. Friedberg performs the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, his patients usually report very little post-operative bleeding, swelling or pain. The procedure has a fast recovery and healing time and it is so simple that many teeth can be treated at a single office visit. Due to the suture-free nature of the technique, it offers patients an instant improvement on their smiles.
The technique works by encouraging a patient’s existing gum tissue to cover the exposed roots of the teeth. When performing the procedure, Dr. Friedberg uses a small pinhole in the gum above the recessed area. Using special tools, he is able to manipulate the tissue until it properly covers the area exposed by the gum recession. Pasadena residents that are in need of a quick, less intense gum recession treatment can contact Dr. Friedberg, a periodontist with training and experience in performing the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Those who are interested can contact his office or visit his website for more information.
