Montes Periodontics and Implant Dentistry Offers Pinhole® Technology for Gum Grafting

CUMMING, Ga., March 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dental patients need to be aware of the new technologies available at Montes Periodontics and Implant Dentistry that can address receding gums and reduce the chances of tooth decay, tooth loss, and further damage to gums and the supporting jaw bones. Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is a revolutionary technology that is minimally invasive and requires no cutting or sutures. Those with gum disease or experiencing tooth sensitivity need to address signs of gum recession and maintain the health of gums and teeth. Regular oral care, in addition to PST®, can help improve oral health and the overall smile.Patients no longer have to live with receding gums. There are a range of issues that can cause gum recession. Aggressive tooth brushing, tartar buildup, hormonal changes, a misaligned bite and grinding or teeth clenching can all contribute to receding gum lines. When gum recession goes untreated, pockets form that allow bacteria to build up and damage teeth. Tooth sensitivity and longer tooth appearance may be the first signs of receding gums. Conventional gum grafting techniques use a scalpel and sutures to address gum recession. The Pinhole® Surgical Technique provides a suture-free, scalpel-free, and graft-free alternative. Work is done through a small hole with no cutting or stitching. Patients can improve the look and health of gums and get back to regular activity quickly.Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is a unique minimally-invasive technique using patented instruments and methods to improve smiles and address gum recession. This technology has been featured on “Dr. Steve Show,” “The Doctors Show,” “ABC” and “NBC,” and more than 240 stations broadcasted across Canada and the United States. This breakthrough procedure can save teeth and correct receding gum lines. Patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms and many can resume “light normal activities” in as little as 24-48 hours. Some patients need only one treatment and long-term results have been documented in the International Journal of Periodontology and Restorative Dentistry. This procedure can help patients avoid tooth loss, dentures or implants, and enhance the appearance of the gum line and smile.“Patients at risk of gum disease and those who experience teeth sensitivity and longer tooth appearances should be aware of the unique technology now available to address gum recession and to protect their teeth,” said Dr. Shelly E. Montes. “Patients can experience long-term benefits from the minimally-invasive process available using PST®.
