High Point, NC (PRWEB) March 25, 2016
Patients with sensitive teeth due to receding gums in High Point, NC, are now invited to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kenneth Peavy to receive the gentle Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique at his practice in Winston Salem, NC. This technique does not require surgery to remove tissue from the roof of the mouth and allows for treatment of many teeth at one visit. The goal of this treatment is to help save the teeth by making the tissue thicker and covering up as much of the exposed root as possible.
Dr. Peavy encourages patients with sensitive teeth from receding gums in High Point, NC, to consider receiving the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique treatment rather than other common forms of treatment that are more invasive. Traditional treatment techniques for receding gums involve grafting tissue from the roof of the mouth into the receding gum line which can cause a long recovery period. Instead, Dr. Peavy performs this minimally invasive procedure by making a 2mm hole in the gums. This hole becomes the entry point for very small tools to carefully move the gums as needed to cover the receded areas and add the collagen that helps strengthen and thicken the gums. While traditional techniques could only treat a few teeth at a time, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique allows Dr. Peavy to treat all the areas that have recession and thin gums at one visit. All these procedures can be done in combination with sedation to provide a comfortable, relaxed and pain free visit.
Patients who are concerned about the discomfort and potential complications associated with more invasive gum recession treatments may prefer to receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique because it causes minimal bleeding and less discomfort.
Patients with sensitive teeth and receding gums in High Point, NC, now have an alternative to traditional gum grafting treatments. Those who would like to schedule a Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique appointment with Dr. Peavy are invited to do so by calling his practice at (336) 774-3001.
