Dearborn, MI (PRWEB) October 10, 2014
People who need to visit a dentist in Dearborn, MI, to receive treatment for receding gums can now visit Dr. Nader Bazzi at Contemporary Dentistry for a new and minimally invasive procedure. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) can often correct gum recession in just one appointment, improving comfort and reducing the risk that patients will experience other oral health problems. This gum recession treatment also promises patients immediate cosmetic improvement and a quick recovery time.
PST™ only requires one tiny incision in the receding gum tissue, so patients have a low risk of bleeding, discomfort, infection or delayed healing after the procedure. Dr. Bazzi performs the treatment using a specialized tool that can be inserted through the pinhole incision. With this instrument, Dr. Bazzi carefully loosens the gum tissue and then restores the gumline to a more natural position. Whereas patients with widespread gum recession might require multiple gum grafts, patients who visit Dearborn, MI dentist Dr. Bazzi can generally have recession corrected in one appointment.
Many people do not realize that gum recession can indicate or even cause various oral health issues. Gum recession may increase tooth sensitivity and mobility, and it can leave teeth exposed to trauma or infection. Gum recession treatment reduces this risk. Recession also frequently occurs in conjunction with other oral health problems, such as periodontal disease. Treatment for gum recession will not correct this problem, but it gives Dr. Bazzi an opportunity to evaluate whether a patient needs additional treatment. During an appointment with Dr. Bazzi, patients can also receive advice on avoiding habits that can worsen recession, such as using tobacco products, eating unhealthily, neglecting oral hygiene or grinding the teeth.
Several measures can reduce the risk of gum recession occurring. People should regularly visit a dentist in Dearborn, MI, and pay close attention to shifts in oral health. Gum recession can be harder to detect than many oral health problems because it occurs so slowly. Patients should be alert to visual signs, such as widening gum pockets, changes in tooth length or a notched appearance at the tooth base. Sensations such as tooth looseness or sensitivity can also indicate recession. People who notice these signs are encouraged to schedule a consultation about gum recession treatment with Dr. Bazzi.
