Port Huron, MI (PRWEB) August 27, 2015
Patients who are dealing with receding gums in Port Huron, MI, can now receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique™ (PST™) from Dr. Jason G. Souyias. Dr. Souyias has recently become among the first one thousand dental professionals in the world who are trained in this procedure. This relatively new treatment option makes it possible for Dr. Souyias to treat receded gums in very little time and with nominal discomfort to the patient. Additionally, the recovery time after PST™ is nearly nonexistent because of the minimally-invasive nature of the procedure.
Recently, patients with receding gums in Port Huron, MI, had very few options for treatment. Most standard gum recession procedures require periodontal professionals to attach healthy tissue to the receding gums with the help of stitches. In many cases, periodontists source healthy tissue from the roof of the mouth and cut it out with scalpels and other sharp tools prior to suturing it to the receded area. This process can be time-consuming and often requires the patient to be careful about what they eat and drink while they recover.
Unlike traditional methods, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique causes minimal trauma to the gum tissue and does not require tissue to be cut from other areas of the mouth. Instead, Dr. Souyias creates a tiny hole in the gum tissue just above the recession site and then carefully pushes the gums downward with the help of specially-designed tools. The process is very quick and highly effective. Most patients can have all of their receded areas treated in a single office visit.
In addition to being quick and minimally painful, PST™ also eliminates the need for a long recovery period, because no large incisions are made during the process and no sutures are used. Most patients who receive the procedure can resume their normal activities within hours of their procedure. Patients whose gums have receded due to untreated gum disease are encouraged to receive periodontal disease treatment in addition to PST™.
Dr. Souyias encourages all patients with receding gums in Port Huron, MI, to find out how quick and minimally painful the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique can be. A consultation may be scheduled by calling Dr. Souyias’ practice and speaking with a member of his team.
