Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Patients with receding gums who are looking for a minimally invasive receding gum treatment are now invited to schedule an appointment with Dr. Coury Staadecker and learn more about the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). Dr. Staadecker is a periodontist in Newport Beach, CA who is one of a select few worldwide qualified to perform this highly innovative and effective treatment.
Patients can develop receding gums for many different reasons, including untreated gum disease, genetic predispositions to gum recession, and brushing too aggressively, among others. If left untreated by a periodontist, Newport Beach, CA patients with gum recession can experience discomfort and tooth sensitivity that can make it difficult to eat and drink, an increased risk of root decay and damage, and issues with self-esteem. Traditional receding gum treatment includes taking a sample of tissue from the roof of the mouth and then attaching it via a grafting procedure to the receded gums with the help of stitches. If the gum recession is located in the front of the mouth, stitches can be very unattractive and uncomfortable and can take weeks to heal. PST™ is a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting treatments and does not require any cutting or stitches. Due to the simple nature of the procedure, patients experience very little bleeding and recover quickly.
When performing PST™, Dr. Staadecker uses a very small, specialized tool to create a pinhole-sized opening in the gums through which he inserts a tiny tool that is designed to push the gums gently away from the teeth. Once the gums are pushed away from the teeth, Dr. Staadecker then repositions them so that they cover up the exposed root surfaces and the area no longer shows signs of recession. To promote healing, small strips of collagen are applied to hold the repositioned tissues into place during this period. Patients who receive PST™ have a low risk of experiencing complications due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure.
