Tyler, TX (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Residents who struggle with ongoing gum recession can now look to Dr. Loyd Dowd of Tyler Dental Care in Tyler, TX and his use of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to bring back normal and healthy gum levels with no cuts or stitches and with very little discomfort. By making it easier than ever before to repair receding gums, Dr. Dowd hopes that this September’s Self-Improvement Month can motivate more area residents to seek help for this problem.
Gum recession is a common side effect and symptom of periodontal infection. It can be very serious because if the gums recede too far, the teeth will not be supported properly and may be lost. This can be unsettling to patients who do not want the cosmetic appearance of missing teeth. It can also open up the possibility root surface decay and damage, as these areas become more susceptible as the gum line recedes. When seeking dental care in Tyler, TX, patients should understand the importance of gum health and how it can protect against many other oral health issues such as root decay and tooth loss.
Most surgeries that addressed gum recession in the past required painful grafting processes. They took healthy gum from other parts of the mouth and stitched it into place where recession was severe. The Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ method, however, changes all of that. It uses no scalpels, makes no cuts, and requires no stitches. Instead, Dr. Dowd is able to use a small opening in the gum tissue nearby the area of recession to gently reposition the tissue over the exposed root to restore a natural gum line. Bleeding, pain, and swelling are generally minimal and the visible results are noticeable immediately.
Residents are encouraged to visit Dr. Loyd Dowd at Tyler Dental Care in Tyler, TX to discuss how they can get help with their receding gums and have the smiles they once had, making September their best Self-Improvement Month yet. More information on the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is also available on Dr. Dowd’s website.
