Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
Ari Moskowitz, DMD, is pleased to announce the availability of a unique gum graft alternative for those suffering from receding gums in Baltimore, MD. This revolutionary treatment, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, restores the gums towards their original position, without grafting tissue from elsewhere in the mouth to stitch over the affected area. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure bypasses the trauma of traditional oral surgery, minimizing pain and allowing most patients to experience a speedy and complete recovery.
Gum disease destroys the delicate tissues of the gums and exposes tooth roots, creating problematic concerns where they are unable to fully reattach to the teeth. Unfortunately, while gum disease is a cause of recession, it also produces unwanted side effects. The pockets that develop between the gum line and the teeth accumulate bacteria and food debris, leading to inflammation and infection. To break the cycle and prevent further issues, many dentists in the past would recommend gum grafts to treat receding gums in Baltimore, MD. However, because the nature of the traditional gum graft procedure is often associated with excessive pain as well as two separate surgical areas, it hinders some dental professionals from prescribing it, except only under the condition of extreme recession.
Dr. Moskowitz is aware of the anxiety that often accompanies this dental procedure. To put his patients at ease, he has received training and certification that allow him to offer a gum graft alternative known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. He numbs the affected area and creates a tiny hole with a specially developed micro-surgical instrument. He is then able to loosen the soft tissue, while gently guiding the gums back into place over the tooth root. Strips of collagen are then placed under the gums which hold the gums in their new position, stimulating new tissue growth to help to reverse gum recession and minimize further recession. Most patients report only feeling minor discomfort, within two to three days of the procedure.
More information about this corrective procedure for receding gums in Baltimore, MD, is available on Dr. Moskowitz’s website, and new patients are welcome to schedule an appointment to discuss this gum graft alternative. During an initial consultation Dr. Moskowitz will determine which treatment option is right for each individual patient.
