Allen, TX (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
In celebration of National Nutrition Month in March, Dr. Marco Cueva is educating patients on the role good nutrition plays in supporting strong periodontal health. Research shows that those with unhealthy or imbalanced diets may be more susceptible to gum disease. Dr. Cueva offers a revolutionary new procedure to reduce the risk of gum disease and address symptoms such as receding gums and sensitive teeth in Allen, TX.
Dr. Cueva reminds patients that poor dietary choices can contribute to gum disease by impairing the body’s ability to fight off this disease and other infections. Nutritional deficiencies can enable gum disease to progress more rapidly and reach more severe stages. Unfortunately, as gum disease advances, victims may experience gum recession, tooth sensitivity, and an increased likelihood of tooth loss. They may also face a greater risk of various systemic health problems linked to gum disease, such as heart disease.
Dr. Cueva strives to help educate his patients and provide treatment for gum recession with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™). This treatment does not require large cuts or sutures; instead, Dr. Cueva makes a tiny pinhole incision in the gums, reaches through with a specialized tool, and gently loosens the gum tissue. Then Dr. Cueva restores the gums to a healthier position and secures the placement with tiny collagen strips. This procedure offers immediate relief for people experiencing symptoms such as sensitive teeth in Allen, TX, along with a low risk of outcomes such as inflammation and infection. PST™ also supports better oral health by protecting the teeth from cavities that might otherwise form under the gumline.
Those who notice signs of gum disease, such as receding gums and sensitive teeth, in Allen, TX, are urged to protect their health by visiting Dr. Cueva and learning whether they need gum recession treatment.
