Matthews, NC (PRWEB) February 13, 2017
Dr. Kiya Green, an experienced periodontist with Matthews Periodontics and a Certified Pinhole Provider since 2014, is pleased to announce that she is now accepting new patients with receding gums in Matthews, NC, for treatment using the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), without a referral. Dr. Green understands that patients with gum recession often suffer from sensitive teeth and other unpleasant side effects, each of which can be treated by receiving PST.
Gum recession is a common condition in the United States and around the world. Although its symptoms may only seem bothersome on the surface, many patients may be unaware that their symptoms could lead to more serious issues if left untreated, including tooth loss. Patients with receding gums in Matthews, NC, may first notice that they have sensitive teeth, or affected teeth may begin to look elongated. Both symptoms occur when the teeth begin to pull back from their natural position along the gum line, exposing the tooth root. Patients may also notice discoloration along the gum line and a loosening of affected teeth. When receding gums are left untreated, the exposed tissues are also more susceptible to gum disease, a serious infection of the tissues of the mouth, which can cause systemic health conditions including heart disease or stroke.
When Dr. Green sees a patient with receding gums in Matthews, NC, she often recommends the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. Unlike traditional gum grafting, PST is a minimally-invasive, suture-free procedure that does not require cutting or grafting. Dr. Green simply uses a set of specially designed tools to loosen the gums and reposition them, covering exposed roots. The gums are then held in place with strips of collagen that are eventually absorbed into the body after healing has occurred. This results in less bleeding, less swelling, less pain and discomfort and a significantly shorter healing period than traditional treatments.
Those who suffer from sensitive teeth and believe gum recession may be a problem should seek the advice of an experienced periodontist. Contact Dr. Green’s office by calling 704-847-5657 to schedule an appointment.
