Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) December 23, 2014
There is a new option for those living with receding gums in Birmingham, MI. Leading area periodontist, Dr. Joseph Nemeth is expanding his patient base and now accepts new patients from Birmingham for the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ (PST™). Dr. Nemeth was the first periodontist in Michigan to be trained and certified to perform this technique, and now, more area patients have access to the procedure. This innovative gum recession treatment results in immediate improvement in gum line appearance and health, without gum graft surgery.
Receding gums is a common condition among Birmingham residents. While some people notice signs of the condition, such as teeth that appear longer or become sensitive to hot or cold, most people do not seek gum recession treatment. Traditional methods of treatment such as gum grafting can sometimes be invasive and can deter some patients from getting treatment.
Unfortunately, not only is gum recession unsightly, it is potentially unhealthy and can lead to further complications with oral health. As the gums recede, more of the tooth and roots are exposed, allowing damage to these sensitive areas. Gum disease is a leading cause of gum recession, and will continue to cause ongoing damage as long as it is left untreated.
The PST™ procedure starts with a very tiny hole in the healthy gum tissue that allows Dr. Nemeth to use specialized dental tools to lift the tissue and gently cover the areas of recession. The minimally invasive procedure uses no cutting or stitching of the tissue, so there is little to no bleeding associated with the surgery. Most patients find that they do not need pain medication during recovery and are back to regular life activities the same day.
