NEWTOWN, Conn., May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Richard Amato and Michael
Gum recession is a common issue faced by adults in America and can happen for numerous reasons. One main cause of receding gums is undiagnosed, untreated gum disease. In fact, gum recession is one of the warning signs of gum disease, a condition suspected to affect up to half the adult population in the United States. Other causes of gum recession include a hereditary predisposition toward the condition, overly aggressive tooth brushing, shifting teeth, crowded teeth and thinning gum tissues.
Without intervention, gum recession can lead to several key problems. The first is exposure of the bottom of the tooth and top of tooth root to bacteria. This can result in sensitivity problems for patients when they eat or drink. It can also lead to decay of the tooth and surrounding bone. Another problem is an imperfect smile. Many patients with receding gums in Newtown, CT, complain that their uneven gum lines cause them embarrassment as well.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique allows Drs. Amato and Kang to restore gum tissue back to a natural, protective position without requiring the use of scalpels or sutures. Instead, the periodontists can simply make a pin-sized hole in the gum tissue and maneuver existing gum using specialized instruments. The results are immediate and healing time is decreased due to reduced trauma to the gums. Plus, candidates for the Pinhole Surgical Technique can avoid having a second gum graft site because no donor gum tissue is needed.
Individuals with receding gums from Newtown, CT as well as Monroe, Trumbull, Shelton, Danbury and Waterbury, CT can make appointments with either periodontist by calling 203-689-2000. All team members are passionate about helping patients achieve their smile goals in a comfortable setting through innovative, advanced treatments such as the Pinhole Surgical Technique.
