Patients suffering with gum recession in New Albany, KY now have access to a revolutionary gum recession treatment option with Doctors Doug Lowy and Reid Nelson of Nelson & Lowy, PSC This alternative to gum surgery provides patients with a scalpel and suture free option that offers the advantage of minimal post-operative symptoms like swelling, pain, and bleeding.

Gum recession, although seemingly insignificant, can cause many serious oral health and cosmetic issues, including tooth loss and low self-esteem due to the look of the receded gum line. Gum recession can be a side effect of many things including gum disease, some medications, improper brushing techniques, and genetic factors. No matter the cause, gum recession can lead to other uncomfortable and unpleasant problems including severe tooth sensitivity and tooth loss. The cosmetic facet of gum recession is equally unpleasant because teeth appear strangely elongated due to the pulling back of the gums.

In order to help prevent tooth loss and sensitivity caused by gum recession, rapid and effective treatment is imperative. Traditional gum recession treatment, surgical gum grafting, requires intensive cutting and suturing of the gum tissue accompanied by a long recovery time with significant post-operative discomfort.

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ utilizes specialized instruments that work in an incision site as small as a pinhole to gently loosen and relocate healthy gum tissue to the natural gum line. After this relocation is complete, the site is then covered with specialized collagen strips that aid in faster healing and allow patients to resume their daily life immediately following the procedure.

Traditional gum recession treatment options can be highly invasive and require cutting and suturing as well as a long healing time, pain and discomfort. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ alternative to gum surgery offers patients a much less invasive and less painful option to successfully treat their receding gums. This technique does not require any cutting or suturing of the gum tissue, making it the ideal choice for many patients, especially those afraid of surgery.

Patients suffering with gum recession in New Albany, KY and are looking for an alternative to gum surgery should set up a consultation with Nelson & Lowy, PSC as soon as possible.
