Powell, OH (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
Dr. Neal Patel of Infinite Smiles is recognizing Gum Disease Awareness Month by helping his patients detect signs of gum disease, such as gum recession. Most adults deal with some degree of gum recession in their lives, due to multiple factors. If left untreated, receding gums can create pockets where gum disease bacteria flourish. Dr. Patel now offers his Powell, OH patients the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ (PST™), a minimally invasive treatment for gum recession.
Gum recession is common enough that many underestimate the problems associated with it. Treatment is about far more than improving the cosmetic appearance of the gums, though it definitely also does that. When the gums recede, dangerously deep pockets of space often form between the gums and the teeth they are meant to protect. The pockets harbor bacteria and plaque, which further destroy the gums, bone and teeth. This type of gum disease is a frequent reason that people in Powell, OH end up having their teeth extracted. Dr. Patel wants to help those in his community by giving them the treatment they need to improve their oral health and save their teeth.
PST™ is an exciting new treatment that offers phenomenal results in the fight against receding gums. It is the minimally invasive replacement to traditional gum graft surgery. In performing PST™, Dr. Patel thoroughly numbs his patients using local anesthetic before creating a tiny pinhole in the affected gums. Using specialized instruments, he carefully lifts the receding gums from their position and moves them into a healthier placement. Results are immediate, and patients leave his office without stitches. Healing occurs quickly and discomfort is minor because of the lack of cutting or other surgical trauma.
