Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 22, 2014
In honor of Self-Improvement Month this September, Raymond A. Kenzik, DDS, offers the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to patients in Ormond Beach, FL. PST™ is a receding gum treatment that does not involve cutting and suturing. This alternative to gum graft surgery uses a special tool that can correct the unsightly effects of receding gums usually in one short appointment.
Dr. Kenzik invites patients to look into this new technique for covering long roots on multiple teeth. The roots of teeth need the protection of the gums because they do not have the hard enamel coating that covers the crowns of teeth. Gums pull away from the roots for a number of reasons, including aggressive tooth brushing, tobacco use and gum disease. Once the dentin is exposed, the nerves in the center of the teeth receive the direct effects of hot, cold or sweet foods and drinks. This causes such a painful reaction that force many people to change their eating habits in order to compensate.
Dr. Kenzik is qualified to provide patients in Ormond Beach, FL with both gum grafting surgery and PST™ receding gum treatment, which can eliminate the need to use palatal tissue. PST™ requires only a tiny hole in the gums, and with a special tool, Dr. Kenzik loosens the gum tissue and guides the gums back over the exposed root. Rather than sutures, collagen strips hold the gums in place and stimulate new tissue growth. Multiple teeth can be treated at the same time. In fact, PST™ is especially effective in cases where the neighboring teeth also have some recession. With PST™ most patients report that any discomfort is gone by the next day.
Ormond Beach, FL patients interested in PST™ or gum grafting for treating receding gums this Self-Improvement Month, are encouraged to contact Dr. Kenzik’s office to find out if they are candidates.
