Ludington, MI (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
People suffering from receding gums can experience the benefits of a new method of gum recession treatment when they visit Dr. Mike Burgardt, a leading dentist in Ludington, MI, for the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This procedure offers patients a low risk of bleeding, pain, or delayed healing, since it is minimally invasive. The procedure can also help Dr. Burgardt’s patients protect their oral health, as a number of health complications are associated with gum recession.
With PST™, Dr. Burgardt can correct gum recession without grafting healthy tissue or altering gum pocket depth. Instead, he directly restores the receding gums to a healthier position. To do this, Dr. Burgardt makes a minuscule pinhole incision in the gum tissue. He then inserts a small tool through the hole and uses it to carefully loosen the gum tissue, until he can finally reposition it to cover more of the exposed tooth. This method allows Dr. Burgardt to fix recession affecting several teeth in just one procedure. This is beneficial for patients experiencing widespread recession, as it can spare them from undergoing multiple gum grafts. PST™ also benefits patients because it poses a low risk of infections, discomfort, and other issues.
Seeking gum recession treatment from a dentist in Ludington, MI offers patients numerous health benefits. Gum recession is frequently an indicator of other oral health problems, such as gum disease, poor oral hygiene, harsh brushing, or teeth clenching and grinding. When Dr. Burgardt evaluates a patient’s gum recession, he can also determine whether other health problems need to be addressed. This can help patients avoid complications such as tooth decay and tooth loss. Even if a patient’s receding gums are due to other factors, such as genetic predisposition, PST™ with Dr. Burgardt can reduce tooth sensitivity, reduce the risk of root decay and damage, and improve the appearance of the patient’s smile.
Dr. Burgardt advises patients who are concerned about gum recession to monitor changes in their oral health and focus on preventative measures. Regular visits to a dentist in Ludington, MI along with strong oral hygiene habits can often prevent recession. People who smoke, grind their teeth, or wear oral jewelry can improve their periodontal health by eliminating or treating those habits. Anyone who notices signs of gum recession is encouraged to call Dr. Burgardt’s office promptly to set up a consultation about treatment options.
