Dr. Kenneth Peavy, an experienced periodontist in Winston-Salem, NC, was recently honored to be a guest speaker at the Forsyth Dental Hygienist Society Dental Hygiene Month meeting. Held at the Forsyth Technical College in Winston-Salem, NC, the course covered a variety of topics pertaining to periodontology. Dr. Peavy spoke specifically on new tunnel techniques for gum grafting, the LANAP® protocol, and other periodontology advancements.
As the fields of dentistry and periodontology gain new research and offer improved treatments, clinicians must stay up-to-date on the latest effective techniques to provide patients with leading care. As a speaker at the recent Forsyth Dental Hygienist Society Dental, Dr. Peavy discussed a variety of the advanced, state-of-the-art services that he also provides patients at his practice including laser dentistry. Laser treatment is known for its gentle accuracy and long-term results. Using the LANAP protocol, Dr. Peavy is able to precisely target infected tissue and remove gum disease, leaving healthy tissue unharmed and offering faster recovery times than traditional techniques.
As a respected periodontist in Winston-Salem, NC and an authority in periodontology, Dr. Peavy also offers, and spoke on a cutting-edge tunnel technique that eliminates the need for removing donor tissue from the palate and grafting it into the receded gum line. Instead, he uses Alloderm, or collagen from donors to conveniently treat receding gums. In combination with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), a revolutionary procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness, speed and minimally-invasive nature, he is able to offer leading care. With only a small pinhole sized incision, Dr. Peavy can readjust the receded gums to a more natural and healthy placement, covering exposed tooth roots. If the receded gums are a result of periodontal disease, Dr. Peavy may recommend laser dentistry treatments as well.
