Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
For people who have considered gum recession treatment in Winter Park, FL, there is exciting news regarding a new option available that is changing minds about gum surgery. Among the many damaging effects of periodontal disease, receding gums are unsightly and unhealthy. With the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ performed by Dr. Scott G. Cohen, Winter Park residents can have improved oral health and better appearance of the gum line with a simple office procedure. In honor of Self-Improvement Month, Dr. Cohen encourages patients to seek minimally invasive treatment for receding gums to improve oral health.
Previous solutions for gum recession treatment in Winter Park, FL such as gum tissue grafting involved significant cutting and stitching, and often required a long and painful recovery time for the patient. For Self-Improvement Month, Dr. Cohen educates his patients about oral health and the connection to overall body healthy. Dr. Cohen is now able to treat gum recession caused by periodontal disease with quick and effective methods that let patients see the difference the same day. With rapid recovery time, the minimally invasive procedure lets patients start enjoying their healthy new smile immediately.
Gum recession can result from periodontal disease, chronic tooth grinding, oral jewelry, or from improper or inadequate oral hygiene techniques. Receding gums allows access for bacteria to impact the roots of the teeth, risking dental health. Left untreated, gum recession is usually progressive, continuing to damage the teeth and roots as the gum line recedes on the teeth.
With the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Dr. Cohen creates a tiny opening in the gum tissue to allow him to gently lift the tissue with special tools, and slightly shift it to cover the areas of recession. With the benefit of special training in this revolutionary new treatment, Dr. Cohen helps patients enjoy improved oral health that contributes directly to overall health.
Studies have linked gum health to other health conditions, including some types of cancers and heart disease. Dr. Cohen teaches patients why they should not ignore the health of their gums in the overall picture of bodily health.
