Loma Linda, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Dr. Roger Sohn is proud to announce that patients with receding gums can now receive a minimally invasive treatment from his practice, Elegant Dental Care. Dr. Sohn is an experienced dentist in Loma Linda, CA, who is now qualified to utilize the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ (PST™) to treat gum recession without using grafting techniques. Patients who have been searching for a minimally painful treatment method for their gum recession symptoms are invited to find out more about PST™ by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Sohn.
Symptoms of receding gums usually include a diminished gum line, exposed tooth roots, teeth that look larger or longer than the others, or loose teeth. Receding gums can be caused by genetics, poor dental hygiene, or aggressive tooth brushing. However, receding gums may also be a sign of a more serious problem, such as gum disease, which should be treated early for optimal oral health.
Dr. Sohn not only offers cutting-edge treatment options for gum disease, but he is also qualified to perform the PST™ procedure for the treatment of gum recession. Traditional gum recession treatment methods almost always involve cutting healthy tissue from the roof of the mouth, then grafting it into the gum line. With PST™, the procedure does not involve any slicing or stitching. Patients will not need to worry about long, uncomfortable recovery times, and most can expect to return to normal daily activities right away.
During the PST™ procedure, a very small tool is used to create a pinpoint hole in the gums above the area that is affected by recession. A tool is then gently maneuvered into the hole and used to carefully prod the gums down over the teeth. The entire procedure is quick, minimally invasive, and effective. In addition, Dr. Sohn is typically able to treat multiple teeth in one visit, so multiple office visits may not be needed.
People with receding gums are encouraged to make Dr. Sohn their trusted dentist in Loma Linda, CA. By scheduling an appointment with his office, individuals with gum recession can find out if they qualify to receive the PST™ treatment.
