Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 12, 2015
People who need treatment for receding gums in Miami, FL, and wish to avoid gum grafting can now visit Dr. Bradley Ross, who is proud to now offer the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This procedure corrects gum recession and eliminates associated health risks, regardless of the underlying cause of the recession. Additionally, since PST™ is less invasive than gum grafting, it minimizes healing time, bleeding, and discomfort for Dr. Ross’s patients.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique allows Dr. Ross to correct gum recession without any need for large incisions, gum grafts or sutures. During the procedure, Dr. Ross only needs to make a tiny hole in the gum tissue that requires treatment. Dr. Ross then can insert a specialized instrument through this pinhole incision and use it to carefully loosen the gum tissue. Once this is done, Dr. Ross can gently reposition the gum tissue to create a longer gumline and protect exposed teeth. People who suffer from receding gums in Miami, FL, can typically expect a quick recovery after this procedure, with a low risk of infections or other adverse developments.
PST™ is an effective treatment for gum recession, regardless of the underlying cause of the condition. As Dr. Ross warns patients, recession can occur due to various oral health issues, including inadequate hygiene, aggressive brushing, bruxism and gum disease. Gum recession may also happen because of other factors, such as tobacco use, hormonal changes or genetics. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique cannot address these underlying issues, but when patients seek treatment for gum recession promptly, Dr. Ross can identify any contributing oral health issues and make a plan to address those issues.
Many people who have receding gums in Miami, FL, may not realize that delaying treatment can introduce health risks. Teeth that have been left exposed after recession may be more vulnerable to damage or infection. Furthermore, when recession is due to oral health problems, victims may face other complications, such as periodontitis or tooth loss. Given these risks, Dr. Ross encourages patients who notice signs of recession to schedule appointments promptly. Patients may contact South Florida Periodontics & Dental Implants to set up consultations with Dr. Ross, or patients may visit the practice website to request appointments.
