Periodontal Disease and Sleep Apnea

1



Sleep Apnea

Do you have extreme daytime grogginess no matter how well you slept the night before?  Having trouble concentrating or remembering details?  Have you been accused of loud Snoring?  If so, it’s possible you could be suffering from sleep apnea.

Periodontal Disease

Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?  Or perhaps when you eat popcorn or chips?  This could be an early sign of gum disease or gingivitis?  Without treatment, gingivitis can lead to a more serious condition, periodontitis.

Sedation Dentistry and Orthodontics

3 out of 4 adults suffer from misaligned teeth. Are you one of them? Crooked teeth chip and wear leading to tooth loss. Crooked teeth are hard to clean, causing a buildup of plaque and bacteria that can attack your gums. Over time, periodontal disease can lead to cardiovascular illness such as heart attack and stroke.
Up to 75% of all people fear going to the dentist. Dental phobia leads to avoidance of preventive dental care, leading to serious dental emergencies such as a toothache or an abscessed tooth. Oral health is vital to your overall health and wellness.

Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique in Quakertown!

1




A breakthrough treatment for gum recession!

What is gum recession?

Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.

Why should gum recession be taken seriously?

When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.

What is the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)?

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is incision and suture free. All of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique were created by Dr. John Chao, and who trained our doctor.

How does the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) differ from traditional gum grafting?

Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

How is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) performed?

During the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.

There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.

What are the benefits of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)?

The benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are many:

  • Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
  • Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
  • No need for uncomfortable sutures
  • No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
  • No need to take donor tissue from the patient’s palate
  • Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results

What Does Invisalign Treatment Involve?

1



First, the dentist needs to devise an initial treatment plan before creating the special aligning trays.  Three-dimensional digital images are taken of the entire jaw.  These images allow the dentist to move specific teeth on the screen, view the jaw from different angles, and also foresee what the face might look like in years to come.  In essence, this technology can show how Invisalign trays will change the facial aesthetics.

Once planning is complete, a unique set of aligners is made.  The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case, but 20-29 sets per arch is typical.

What are some considerations when wearing Invisalign trays?

Life with Invisalign aligning trays may take several weeks to get used to.  The trays should be worn constantly, except when eating and drinking.  It is important to remove the trays when consuming food or drink because food can become trapped between the tray and the teeth, causing tooth decay.

Usually, new trays are necessary every two weeks and progress between appointments can be seen with the naked eye.  There is no doubt that Invisalign aligning trays have revolutionized orthodontics.  Invisalign is renowned for being both comfortable and effective.

If you have questions about Invisalign, please ask your dentist.
