Periodontal Specialists For You
Perhaps one of the least-known areas of the dental profession from the outside world, periodontal dentistry is the specialization in the prevention, treatment and diagnosis of periodontal disease — which simply means your gums and jawbone.
Periodontal dentists undergo three additional years of education and training to become experts in the supporting structures of your teeth, which work hand-in-hand to create your overall oral health. While a general dentist may be able to treat minor periodontal complications, our dentists can treat more serious issues of gum disease, which usually start as slight inflammation in the gum tissue, but could end in tooth loss and bone loss. Don’t let that happen and see us soon!
We offer the following procedures to help control and treat periodontal disease:
- Pocket Reduction Procedures: Also known as flap surgery, osseous surgery and gingivectomy, pocket reduction procedures encompass surgical procedures that aim to access the tooth roots in order to remove tartar and bacteria. Our mouth houses several bacteria. The bacteria present in plaque produce acids that erode the enamel and contribute to periodontal disease. Pocket reduction surgery helps in the removal of these bacteria so that the infection can be controlled and the teeth can be saved.
- Scaling and Root Planing: Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical form of treatment for gum disease. The aim of this treatment is to remove etiologic agents which cause inflammation in the gum tissue and the bone around it. Scaling and root planing is highly effective for treating gingivitis and moderate periodontal disease.
- Root Surface Debridement: Root surface debridement refers to the removal of calculus and plaque from the gums and teeth to control and prevent periodontal disease.
- Gum Surgery: Gum surgeries include a variety of surgical procedures to improve the health of the gum tissue. Some examples of surgical procedures for the gum are: flap surgery, which aims to help reattach the gums to the tooth roots, and gum graft surgery, which helps to restore deteriorated gum tissue. Surgery on the gums is generally done for people who are affected by periodontal disease.
