Catonsville, MD (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
September is Self-Improvement Month, and for those who would like to take the opportunity to improve oral health, Ari Moskowitz, DMD in Catonsville, MD, is pleased to offer a new gum recession treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Exposed tooth roots and painful sensitivity, due to receding gums, can now be remedied without the utilization of painful gum grafts from the palate. Using specialized tools, developed by Dr. John Chao, Dr. Moskowitz is able to restore the gums toward their original positions.
Gum recession may develop because of aggressive tooth brushing, which deteriorates thin gum tissue progressively, or it may be a result of trauma from the bite wearing down unevenly over time becoming traumatic and unbalanced, or from periodontal disease, a bacterial infection that destroys the gums. No matter what risk factors contribute to receding gums in Catonsville, MD, the result often causes exposed dentin. Exposure to this tooth matter can create increased sensitivity with hot, cold, and sweet stimuli, often creating a shock of pain due to the affected tooth nerve. Sensitivity and an altered, un-esthetic smile are not the only concerns caused by recession. As pockets between the gums increase in depth, bacteria accumulates exponentially, creating an increased risk for gum disease and root decay leading to root canal treatments or loss of teeth.
A periodontist typically utilizes painful gum grafting techniques to treat patients with receding gums. In the traditional gum grafting technique, tissue is transferred from other areas within the mouth and stitched to the gums in the exposed area. Over the next four to eight weeks, the tissue integrates as part of the healing process. Dr. Moskowitz, a Board certified periodontist in Catonsville, MD, as part of his on-going commitment to providing outstanding periodontal care for his patients, has travelled to California to become trained and qualified to use the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Instead of stitching tissue over the exposed area, he creates a tiny hole in the gums and gently loosens the tissue, maneuvering the gums back toward their original positions. A strip of collagen holds them in place, while regenerative growth is stimulated, which thickens the existing gum tissue and sets the stage for a significantly improved gum health.
Anyone interested in celebrating Self-Improvement Month with a brand new smile, can acquire more information about the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a more innovative gum treatment for gum recession, on Dr. Moskowitz’s website.
