SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Well-respected, board-certified periodontist, Dr. Jin
Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons. Many with receding gums have active periodontal disease, which often causes gums to move away from the teeth. In some cases, adults experience gum recession as their teeth shift or because of incorrect, aggressive brushing habits. Regardless of the underlying causes, receding gums can have more serious complications.
Patients with gum recession usually report having a variety of concerns that includes sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity makes drinking or eating hot, cold or even sweet foods and beverages uncomfortable. Some may also have pain at the site of the gum recession when they go outside on a cold day. Leaving the exposed tooth base and root untreated and exposed can lead to rapid tooth decay and eventually periodontal disease.
As a highly trained and credentialed periodontist, Dr. Kim has the equipment and ability to remedy receding gums without sutures by using the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Dr. Kim uses specialized tools to gently adjust existing gum tissue through only a small hole in the gums. Because PST requires no sutures or extensive tissue cutting, results are immediate, and recovery is faster than traditional, more invasive gum grafting.
Anyone who has sensitive teeth in Santa Ana, CA caused by receding gums can contact Dr. Kim's offices and make an exploratory consultative appointment. The Diamond Bar, CA, practice can be reached at 909-860-9222, and the West Garden Grove facility at 714-898-8757.
