Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
Dr. Thomas McCawley is expanding his patient base, and now invites residents with receding gums in Oakland Park, FL to visit his Fort Lauderdale practice for the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This simple yet revolutionary alternative to gum surgery is minimally invasive and can be completed in a single office visit, whereas traditional gum surgery often has to be completed over the length of several visits. Patients who want to have their old smiles back without suffering through the discomfort of a gum grafting procedure are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. McCawley’s practice.
Gum recession can sometimes be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene, flossing and brushing properly, avoiding tobacco, seeking prompt treatment for periodontal disease, and avoiding wearing jewelry in the mouth. However, in some cases, gum recession becomes so severe that it must be treated with the help of a periodontal professional. Residents with receding gums in Oakland Park, FL are encouraged to seek prompt treatment before the condition becomes worse and leads to tooth sensitivity or possibly the loss of one or more teeth. Those who are interested in a minimally painful alternative to gum surgery are invited to find out if they are candidates for PST™.
PST™ is a very simple procedure, and provides immediate aesthetic benefits. Traditional gum recession surgery can take weeks to heal, the effects of which are not very attractive to look at while healing. Since PST™ does not involve any cutting or stitches, it immediately improves the appearance of the smile and does not require any recovery time. During PST™, a small pinprick is created in the gums, through which a special tool is inserted and used to carefully push the gums over the receded area. The result is a natural looking smile that shows no signs of gum recession.
Residents with receding gums in Oakland Park, FL can now receive PST™ treatment by scheduling an appointment with the McCawley Center for Laser Periodontics and Implants. PST™ is an effective, quick, and minimally painful alternative to gum surgery that is capable of treating receding gums in a single office visit.
