Manchester, NH (PRWEB) December 19, 2014
Dr. Austin Wang and Dr. Tracey Vest of Cornerstone Periodontics & Implants are extending their patient base, and now offer Manchester, NH residents suffering with receding gums a new, minimally invasive treatment procedure called the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Gum recession, if left untreated, can cause many other unpleasant side-effects like tooth loss.
Gum disease is typically the main cause of gum recession, but there are other causes that include an incorrect brushing technique, side-effects of some medications, and side-effects of some traditional dental and orthodontic treatments. Even treatments to remove gum disease can sometimes be the cause of receding gums because sometimes healthy tissue must be sacrificed in order to remove all of the diseased tissue and bacteria that is plaguing the gums.
No matter the cause, receding gums can lead to other unpleasant problems including severe tooth sensitivity and in severe cases, tooth loss. The cosmetic part of gum recession is equally unpleasant because teeth appear strangely elongated due to the pulling back of the gums.
Traditional treatment options for receding gums are highly invasive and require cutting and suturing as well as a long healing time, pain and discomfort. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ offers patients a less invasive and less painful option to successfully treat their gum recession. This technique does not require any cutting or suturing of the gum tissue, making it the preferred method of patients and dental professionals alike. This technique utilizes specialized instruments that work through a site as small as a pinhole to gently loosen and relocate healthy gum tissue back to its normal position. After this relocation is complete, the site is then covered with specialized collagen strips that aid in faster healing and allow patients to resume their daily life immediately following the procedure.
Patients suffering with receding gums in Manchester, NH should seek treatment with Dr. Austin Wang and Dr. Tracey Vest of Cornerstone Periodontics & Implants.
