Muskegon, MI (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
Dr. Mike Burgardt of Burgardt Family Dentistry now utilizes the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ and accepts new patients, expanding the territory the practice serves to include Muskegon and the surrounding area. Patients seeking a dentist near Muskegon, MI can now turn to Dr. Burgardt and his practice for a variety of dental services, including the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, which is a minimally invasive option for patients looking to address receding gums without requiring the doctor to use a scalpel or sutures in the process.
The primary cause of gum recession is gum disease. Given the widespread prevalence of gum disease in the United States (the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, reports that over 47 percent of American adults suffer from some form of the disease), there is a significant need for dental services that address the issue of receding gums in a meaningful way. Through the use of the Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Dr. Burgardt is able to create a small hole in the gum line through which he can use specialized instruments to loosen and reposition the gums. This generates immediate cosmetic results, and the doctor is able to treat multiple teeth in a single visit.
Patients with receding gums who are in need of a dentist near Muskegon, MI can therefore turn to Dr. Burgardt to care for their gum recession, which is not just a symptom of gum disease. Although gum recession is indeed most often caused by periodontal disease, it can also arise due to a number of other factors. Patients who brush improperly, habitually grind their teeth, or use tobacco products are also at risk of developing gum recession. Regardless of the issue that causes the gum recession, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is able to effectively address the resulting recession in a minimally invasive manner.
Prospective patients looking for a dentist near Muskegon, MI can contact Dr. Burgardt’s office to schedule an appointment for a consultation. During this time, the doctor can discuss the many treatment options that may be available, including the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. While this procedure for dealing with gum recession is minimally invasive, the doctor may still need to evaluate each individual patient’s respective eligibility for the procedure.
