Nacogdoches, TX (PRWEB) April 25, 2017
Dual board-certified periodontist and prosthodontist, Dr. Alejandro Kovacs, will be lecturing at the Perio-Endo Study Club of East Texas on April 28, 2017, specifically covering the latest surgical techniques in treating gum recession in Nacogdoches, TX. Dr. Kovacs, and the entire Perio-Endo Study Club of East Texas, are dedicated to discovering and developing modern, long-lasting treatment strategies in the fields of endodontics and periodontology.
Receding gums expose the root of the tooth to the harsh environment of the mouth causing tooth sensitivity, loose teeth, and in some cases, even tooth loss. Frequently, patients are unaware that they have gum recession until it has become a more serious issue. Gum disease, aggressive brushing or flossing, genetics, tooth grinding or trauma can all cause gum recession.
Gum recession is reversible. A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Kovacs is skilled in offering modern periodontal treatments at his private practice in Longview, TX, Pinnacle Implants & Periodontics. He is experienced in a variety of gum recession treatments in order to provide patients the customized treatment they need. During the upcoming Perio-Endo Study Club of East Texas meeting, he will discuss effective gum grafting techniques including connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, lateral position flaps, coronally advanced flaps, Emdogain™ as well as the VISTA tunneling technique.
One of the most frequently used gum grafting solutions, connective tissue grafts, allows Dr. Kovacs, and other experienced periodontists, to treat receding gums and save patients’ teeth, oral health and the aesthetics of their smile. Using tissue from a separate location in the mouth, Dr. Kovacs and his team reinforce a site of gum recession with new tissue that will integrate into the area, crafting a natural gum line and a healthy smile. In some cases, Dr. Kovacs may be able to recommend AlloDerm® which eliminates the need for patients to use their own tissue, decreasing recovery time.
Treating gum disease can prevent developing receding gums. Offering a variety of specialized periodontal treatments at his practice, Dr. Kovacs understands that patients must see a qualified dental professional trained in a wide-range of treatments in order to receive long-lasting care. Applying the latest advancements in his field, Dr. Kovacs frequently attends continuing education courses and contributes to study clubs in the Texas area in order to offer leading care.
During the upcoming Perio-Endo Study Club of East Texas, Dr. Kovacs will discuss effective surgical techniques for treating gum recession, in Nacogdoches, TX, when they are most effective and their unique benefits.
