Dublin, OH (PRWEB) August 10, 2015
Patients with receding gums in Dublin, OH and Columbus, OH are now welcome to receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) from Dr. Robert Heller’s practice in Lewis Center. Many patients prefer this treatment method over gum grafting because it is less invasive, causing minimal bleeding, proving to be far more efficient. Additionally, patients who receive the PST™ recover in minimal time because the procedure does not require the use of stitches or large incisions.
When Dr. Heller performs the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique on patients with receding gums in Dublin, OH, he does not utilize scalpels to make large incisions in the gums. Instead, he uses a small, sharp tool to create a hole in the gums that is approximately the size of a pinpoint. Once the hole is created, he can insert small tools and utilize them to slide the gums up or down over the tooth’s surface. This technique is very effective for covering up receded areas, without the necessity of reattaching tissue from another area of the mouth, with the assistance of sutures. Patients are able to experience a more expedited recovery after receiving the PST™ and are less likely to suffer from complications such as excessive bleeding during the procedure or recovery.
Patients who are suffering from gum recession due to gum disease, genetics, aggressive tooth brushing practices or any other reason now have a minimally-invasive treatment option available to suit their needs. Unlike gum grafting techniques, the Pinhole® technique yields immediate results that are visually apparent once the treatment has been completed. Patients who have multiple receded areas can typically have them treated during one office visit, due to the efficient speed of the procedure.
Gum recession can be an incredibly embarrassing and painful condition, especially under the progression of more advanced stages. Dr. Heller welcomes patients with receding gums in Dublin, OH, to visit his practice for a Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique consultation. An appointment can be reserved by calling Dr. Heller’s office and speaking with an office representative during established business hours.
