SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (PRWEB) January 21, 2018
Individuals with gum recession in the Metro Detroit area should be aware of a minimally-invasive treatment option available at the periodontal office of Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates.
Gum recession is when the margin of the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls away, exposing the tooth’s root. Left untreated, it can result in an esthetically compromised appearance, sensitivity, cavities, and bone and tooth loss. There are many possible causes including gum disease, overaggressive tooth brushing, genetics, trauma, etc.
Dr. Joseph Nemeth, a renowned periodontist in Michigan, offers patients the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), an alternative way to cover exposed tooth roots using specially designed and patented instruments. The proven Pinhole method treats gum recession in a much friendlier manner compared to traditional options.
Traditionally, connective tissue grafts have been the most common procedure for covering areas of recession. This involves taking tissue from the roof of the mouth and then stitching it over the area of exposed roots.
PST, invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, was designed to be a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure to correct gum recession. There is often no cutting or stitching required and patients typically experience minimal post-operative discomfort.
This breakthrough procedure has garnered national attention being featured on “The Doctors Show,” “ABC,” “NBC,” and more than 240 stations broadcasted across Canada and the United States.
Dr. Joseph Nemeth serves patients throughout the state of Michigan as well as others who travel nationally and internationally to see him. He was the first periodontist in Michigan to be trained and certified by Dr. Chao himself to provide the Pinhole procedure. Additionally, he offers the LANAP laser for gum disease and sedation dentistry.
