Scarsdale, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Dr. Paul Snisky now performs an innovative type of gum recession treatment, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), for his patients in Scarsdale and Manhattan, NY. This procedure minimizes healing time, pain, and bleeding for patients who require surgical treatment for receding gums. Patients who visit Dr. Snisky for PST™ can protect their teeth and lower their likelihood of developing other oral health problems.
PST™ is less invasive than a traditional gum graft, since the procedure does not call for the relocation of any gum tissue. Dr. Snisky begins the procedure by making a very small pinhole incision in the gum tissue that has receded. Next, he inserts a tiny tool through the incision and uses the tool to loosen the gum tissue until it can be moved into a more normal position. The procedure does not require any sutures, and most patients experience very little bleeding or pain afterward. The risk of infection is also low, since the procedure is not very invasive. Another benefit of PST™ is that Dr. Snisky can correct receding gums affecting several teeth in a single session; with a traditional gum graft, several sessions may be needed to fix the recession.
Dr. Snisky advises patients to remain alert to signs that gum recession treatment may be necessary because early treatment can prevent numerous oral health issues. Often, gum recession is caused by bad habits, such as brushing infrequently or brushing too forcefully. Even more frequently, gums recede due to periodontal disease, a bacterial infection of the gums. In addition to correcting the recession, Dr. Snisky can determine what caused it and whether additional treatment is necessary. Even when gum recession is due to other factors, treatment with Dr. Snisky can help reduce tooth sensitivity, stabilize the positioning of teeth, and shield teeth against infection or damage.
People who think they have receding gums are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Snisky about getting treatment to protect their oral health.
