Spartanburg, SC (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
Dr. Matthew J. Bynum is pleased to announce the expansion of his South Carolina dental practice. Individuals who have receding gums in Spartanburg, SC, are now able to take advantage of the latest in corrective procedures. Dr. Bynum is one of the few dentists in the country qualified to perform the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, restoring gums to their natural positions without incisions and stitches.
Aggressive brushing, age, and other factors reduce gum tissue, leaving portions of the tooth roots exposed. Enamel protects only the crown of the tooth, so the uncovered area is vulnerable to hot, cold, and sweet stimuli. These cause a sharp jolt of pain in the tooth, which leads many people to alter their eating habits. As the gums pull away from teeth, effective oral hygiene becomes increasingly difficult, causing bacteria to accumulate in the pockets which can lead to infection. Gums continue to recede farther away from the roots of teeth as periodontitis progresses. Even after the disease has been treated, gums may not fully reattach, creating unattractive gaps.
The traditional treatment for receding gums in Spartanburg, SC, is gum grafting. Due to the invasive nature of this procedure, many dentists are unwilling to recommend it. Tissue is cut from the roof of the mouth or another oral location, and stitched to the gums around the exposed root. If there is enough gum tissue near the tooth, the dentist can cut a flap of this and pull it across the area, stitching it in place. When grafts are successful, the tissue is integrated in the new area and oral health is restored.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique was developed to heal gum recession without utilizing the invasive measures that often cause more pain. Using a specialized tool, Dr. Bynum makes a tiny hole in the gums over the affected area. Another tool loosens tissue, which guides the gums back to their original position. A strip of collagen is inserted to hold them in place and stimulate new tissue growth. Up to ten teeth can be treated in a one-hour session, and most patients report little to no discomfort by the following day. Anyone in the area of Spartanburg, SC, who requires treatment for receding gums, now has more technologically advanced options. More information about the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is available on Dr. Bynum’s website.
