Patients with gum recession may now restore the beauty of their smiles during Self Improvement Month, by receiving the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique from Dr. Bruce Crawford. This innovative technique is both quick and easy to perform, yielding noticeable results in a single office visit. Patients who have receding gums in St. Petersburg, FL, are encouraged to improve their oral health and appearance with this affordable treatment technique.
Gum recession is a common side effect of gum disease, but it can also occur as the result of genetics, certain medications, and brushing too hard and frequently. Dr. Crawford is pleased to offer the minimally-invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, to assist patients with improving their oral health during Self Improvement Month. Those who have been affected by receding gums in St. Petersburg, FL, remain fully aware that condition is not only painful, but also embarrassing. If it is not treated promptly, it may lead to the subsequent loss of one or more teeth. Patients who allow their receding gums to progress without treatment are more likely to require multiple implants or dentures, in order to restore their dental function and appearance.
There is more than one treatment option available in regards to receding gums, but Dr. Crawford recommends the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, providing the most gentle and effective outcome. During this procedure, Dr. Crawford uses a specific tool to create a very small hole in the gum tissue, near the recession site. Once this hole is created, Dr. Crawford is able to insert specialized tools into the area and release the connection between the gum tissue and the teeth. Once loosened, the gums can be gently repositioned over the surface of the tooth, allowing recession to no longer be visibly evident. The procedure incurs minimal time, with minor bleeding and discomfort.
Patients with receding gums in St. Petersburg, FL, are urged to take advantage of Self Improvement Month and receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique from Dr. Crawford. Those who have been affected by advanced cases of gum recession, also respond positively, to this gentle and highly effective procedure.
