  Springfield, MO (PRWEB) February 26, 2015   Now offering the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) for his patients with receding gums, Dr. Leo A. Tokarczyk has acquired the special training and certification to administer the patented new surgical procedure. The periodontist Springfield, MO residents trust for comprehensive and personalized service now delivers improved gum line appearance and health in an efficient office procedure. As the name implies, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ starts with a tiny pinhole in the healthy gum tissue, which allows Dr. Tokarczyk to access beneath the tissue with specially designed dental implements so that he can gently stretch the gums to cover areas of recession.             As the periodontist Springfield, MO residents turn to for specialized knowledge and treatment regarding gum health, Dr. Tokarczyk devotes time to educating patients about the delicate tissues that support the teeth. Inadequate oral hygiene or infrequent visits to the dentist allows dental problems to develop out of sight for many people. Causes of receding gums vary by individual patients, and can include factors such as:           * Overaggressive brushing or incorrect technique       * Wrong kind of toothbrush that can damage sensitive tissue of the gums         * Periodontal disease             * Clenching or grinding of the teeth         * Oral piercings       Whatever the reasons, gum recession is not only unsightly, but is also dangerous to oral health and overall wellbeing.

  Salem, OR (PRWEB) February 26, 2015         Dr. Sunny L. Drake, a periodontist in Salem, OR now treats receding gums with the revolutionary Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). Among the many dental services and treatments she offers, Dr. Drake now has the specialized training and certification to provide this patented treatment for gum recession. The problem of recession is a serious concern, both visually and for the patient's oral health. The solution of PST™ offers a visible improvement in gum line health after a simple office visit.       Known as the periodontist Salem, OR residents turn to for personalized service and detailed dental care, Dr. Drake is excited to provide an outstanding new solution for the common problem of receding gums among her patients. Other surgeries to remedy gum recession typically rely on the cutting and stitching of a gum graft to restore the gum line. Naturally, the invasive surgery is uncomfortable and calls for a recovery time of many weeks, with soft food diet restrictions and the need for strong pain medication as the patient gently returns to life activities after many days.     The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is the new answer and offers a minimally invasive option to restore healthy gum lines.

  Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2015   Dr. Stephen Eriksen is now making the Waterlase iPlus™ gum disease treatment available to new patients in Walnut Creek, CA who need treatment for periodontal disease. This procedure minimizes pain and damage to healthy tissue, so patients face a low risk of undesirable side effects or complications. At the same time, the laser therapy effectively treats gum disease and reduces the risk of patients experiencing related health complications.         The Waterlase iPlus™ laser combines laser energy and a stream of water to perform periodontal procedures without the discomfort or damage associated with traditional surgery. Using this laser, Dr. Eriksen can precisely remove diseased gum tissue and tartar deposited below the gumline. The use of water, along with the elimination of vibration and heat, reduces pain and inflammation both during the procedure and after it is complete. Most patients experience minimal bleeding and discomfort. Since this laser therapy procedure is less invasive than regular surgery, patients are also unlikely to experience infection afterward.         Dr. Eriksen hopes that patients, who might not otherwise seek gum disease treatment in Walnut Creek, CA, take advantage of this alternative to conventional surgery.

Supreme Court Sides With LegalZoom in North Carolina Dental Board Antitrust Decision

(GlobeNewswire) - The United States Supreme Court ruled yesterday that state regulatory agencies, such as the North Carolina State Bar, that are controlled by active members of the very professions that they regulate are not immune from federal antitrust laws unless their actions are actively supervised by politically accountable government officials. Although the case involved the regulation of teeth whitening, it will have far broader ramifications, including how the practice of law is regulated.

Cold, Virus or Allergies on This Day -- Should You Keep Your Dental Appt or Stay Away?; :DentalPlans Offers Tips on Whether to Skip or Keep a Dental Visit During Allergy Season

Spring is headed our way, along with hay fever, allergies and occasionally even that last winter cold. If you are due for your 6-month dental checkup but have come down with the sniffles, how do you know whether or not it's best to skip your dentist appointment?

"Knowing the difference between an allergy and a cold can be tricky," says Bill Chase, vice president of marketing for :DentalPlans. "When you are in doubt, it's best to wait it out, and reschedule for another date.
