Sensitive teeth are a condition far more prevalent than most people realize. Although it is fairly common, it should not be considered a normalcy in oral health care. Sensitive teeth may be an indicative sign of a more serious dental problem, such as gum disease. If left untreated, the sensitivity may increase from mild discomfort to extreme pain, when the teeth are exposed to hot and cold foods, drinks or even air. September is the perfect time, for those affected by sensitive teeth, to seek out treatment for receding gums in Atlanta, GA.

Preferred Treatment of Choice

The SIM Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) has altered the notion of gum surgery forever. It is a faster, more desirable option for people who are not receptive to the idea of gum surgery. Traditional gum surgery is associated with its own set of risks and concerns, and often times, proves to be extensively invasive. Dr. Randolph S. Moore recommends the PST™ procedure for its minimally invasive method of treatment and proven results. Its many benefits include:

 ·         No surgery
 ·         Mild to little discomfort and pain
 ·         Less recovery time
 ·         Better smile
 ·         Reduced teeth sensitivity

Pay Attention to the Big Picture

Receding gums is a prime indicator that gum disease is active and present. Although you may not be affected by other symptoms of this condition, this treatment may prove to be vital as a means to remedy receding gums and sensitive teeth.

Sensitivity may occur due to the accumulation of bacteria in the mouth, ultimately deteriorating enamel and bone tissue surrounding the teeth. It may also occur with the active presence of gum recession, causing the roots of the teeth to become exposed. As those layers become thinner, exposure of more tooth roots occur. Once tooth roots have been exposed to hot or cold elements, the risk of experiencing discomfort or pain is increased.
