Hartland, MI (PRWEB) December 19, 2014
Dr. James LoCascio is expanding his patient base and now accepts new patients from Hartland, MI with receding gums for a revolutionary gum recession treatment. Dr. LoCascio is one of the few dental professionals qualified to offer PST™ to those with receding gums, and he is currently accepting new patients from Hartland. This rapid and effective treatment option for receding gums is minimally painful and carries a very low risk of complications, including bleeding and infection.
It is very common for Hartland residents to suffer from receding gums. This embarrassing and uncomfortable condition can be caused by many different factors, including periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene and tooth grinding. Many dental professionals offer gum grafting procedures as their primary treatment options for gum recession, but grafting can be a painful gum recession treatment that can take a significant amount of time to heal. PST™ is an attractive alternative for patients that want to reduce their gum recession symptoms without worrying about the invasiveness and discomfort of traditional grafting procedures.
Instead of cutting healthy tissue from an area of the mouth and attaching it to the receded gum line with unsightly stitches, PST™ involves pushing already-existing gum tissue downward over the teeth in order to reduce recession in an effective and minimally painful way. This is done by creating a small hole in the gums directly over the receded area, then inserting a tool into the gums that is designed to gently separate the gums from the teeth and nudge them downward. The end result is a natural-looking gum line that shows no sign of recession and does not require unattractive and uncomfortable stitches.
Patients who receive the PST™ technique experience very little down time, and most can return to their normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is completed. Patients who receive traditional gum grafting procedures have a much longer recovery time due to its more invasive nature.
Patients with receding gums in Hartland, MI, are encouraged to schedule a PST™ appointment with Dr. LoCascio by calling his Highland practice. Prompt gum recession treatment can increase self-confidence and lead to a more beautiful, healthy smile without the discomfort that gum recession can cause.
