Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Dr. Gregg R. Codelli, a leading periodontist in the Atlanta, GA area, is now certified in the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ and invites patients who are suffering from gum recession to receive this advanced treatment for the condition. Those who have been putting off seeing a periodontist for treatment because they did not like the side effects of traditional gum grafting can now receive the treatment they need without cutting and stitching.
Gum recession is a common problem for many Americans. Patients often report having increased tooth sensitivity and an elongated look to the teeth with receding gums. Although the majority of cases are due to periodontal disease and inadequate dental hygiene, genetics and hormones do play a part in many instances. Teeth grinding, clenching of the jaw and aggressive tooth brushing have all been shown to cause or contribute to the condition as well. In many cases, Dr. Codelli is able to use the less invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique™ for effective treatment with immediate results.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ has many benefits over other gum grafting surgeries. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve the use of incisions or sutures. Due to how the technique is performed, patients experience less bleeding, swelling and pain than with traditional gum grafting surgeries. When Dr. Codelli performs the technique in Atlanta, GA, he simply places a small hole in the gums above an area of gum recession. Dr. Codelli works through this small hole, using specialized tools to first loosen and then move the gums so that they once again cover the root of the tooth. This can be done for many teeth at one time, so patients can see an instant result after only a single treatment.
Atlanta, GA patients who need treatment for their gum recession, but fear traditional gum grafting surgery, are invited to contact Dr. Codelli’s office for more information and to schedule an appointment. With Dr. Codelli’s help, patients can regain their smiles and their self-confidence with just one treatment.
