It’s summertime, and that means travel, outdoor activities, and wonderful summer photo opportunities designed to help you remember everything you did during this warm season. If you’re experiencing receding gums in Matthews, NC due to advanced periodontal disease, though, your smile might not be what it was during previous vacations. Before you worry about your summer photo smile, think about scheduling an appointment for gum recession treatment with Matthews, NC periodontist, Dr. Green. The doctor uses the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) to treat, so results are fast and discomfort is minimal. You’ll have the smile you remember again in no time!
This advanced surgical technique works by creating a small hole with the intent of going in with specialized tools. The pinhole surgical technique allows for the cleaning of infected tissue and the immediate cessation of gum recession while minimizing the discomfort felt by the patient and the amount of healthy tissue lost. Recovery time is also minimal.
Remember, the early treatment of gum recession with the pinhole surgical technique can halt receding gums in its tracks if you are taking other steps to make sure the infection doesn’t come back. Don’t wait to give yourself the healthy smile you see in your photos from past summers.
Once you have halted the progress of the infection and relieved the impact of major symptoms, fighting gum disease becomes important if you want to maintain your healthy smile. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have scheduled follow-up periodontal appointments and regular cleanings after your procedure. If you have had a procedure to halt the progress of gum disease and you haven’t booked your next periodontal maintenance appointment, call today.
