Gum disease is a serious dental health problem affecting a large portion of the population. If not treated appropriately, gum disease can lead to more serious problems including bone loss and missing teeth. One of the most important things you can to do to prevent gum disease is to practice good daily oral hygiene including brushing and flossing daily. Visiting the dentist regularly for dental cleanings and exams is another important thing you can do to safeguard your long-term dental health.
Pinhole® Surgical Technique – A Scalpel-Free, Suture-Free, Graft-Free Treatment Option for Receding Gums
Do you suffer from gum recession? Dr. Patel proudly offers the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) to correct receding gums. This treatment is a minimally invasive approach that does not require the use of grafts. Instead, a small pinhole needle is used to loosen the gum tissue and adjust it over the receding area of the tooth. The Pinhole® Surgical Technique provides effective, long-term results without the need for a scalpel or incisions. This significantly reduces any post-operative discomfort such as pain, bleeding or swelling. The accelerated recovery and superior results of the Pinhole® Surgical Technique are highlighted advantages for patients seeking treatment for gum recession.
LANAP – Effective Non-Surgical Laser Gum Therapy
At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care, we are proud to offer the most innovative laser gum therapy available. Our LANAP technology is an excellent alternative to traditional gum surgery, helping patients avoid the stitches and painful recovery of invasive surgery as well as the potential trauma to surrounding bone and teeth. LANAP is a proven, FDA approved and non-invasive treatment option that targets only the diseased gum tissues while leaving the healthy tissues and bone uncompromised.
The LANAP procedure is gentle and straightforward. It uses a pulsed Nd:YAG laser that emits a narrow, yet intense beam of light to kill bacteria within the affected sub-gingival tissues and pocket lining. LANAP allows for superior precision and highly predictable results. For patients, recovery is more comfortable and much faster than traditional gum surgery.
