Sun Prairie, WI (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
All individuals who are living with the uncomfortable and unattractive symptoms of periodontal disease are encouraged by Dr. Chris Stevens to seek prompt treatment for their condition. Those with receding gums in Sun Prairie, WI are invited to learn more about available treatment options for gum recession, including the highly advanced, minimally invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™).
Periodontal disease is one of the most common oral conditions facing the population today, but many individuals do not seek treatment for the condition right away. As a result, minor annoying symptoms that are typical of the beginning stages of the disease are often allowed to advance to more serious stages. A receding gum line is a very common symptom of gum disease, and if not addressed, can lead to aesthetic drawbacks as well as highly sensitive teeth. Residents with receding gums in Sun Prairie, WI are encouraged to find out more about the PST™ option for treating gum recession.
During the PST™ procedure, Dr. Stevens creates a very small opening in the gums with a specialized tool. The opening is located near the receding area and allows just enough space for a tiny instrument to be inserted into the gums. Once the instrument is inserted, it can be gently maneuvered back and forth to release the attachment of the gums to the teeth. Once the attachment is released, the gums can then be freely repositioned over the teeth to eliminate any signs of a receding gum line. The entire procedure causes very little discomfort and bleeding and requires almost no recovery time. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within hours of their procedure.
Patients with receding gums in Sun Prairie, WI no longer have to rely on invasive surgical procedures that involve removing portions of healthy gum tissue and grafting them onto areas of receding gums. By setting up a PST™ appointment with Dr. Stevens, patients with receding gums due to periodontal disease can have their old smiles back without being subjected to the lengthy recovery times or complications that sometimes accompany traditional gum grafting procedures. Those who are interested in learning more can contact Dr. Stevens by phone or via his website.
