Gum disease is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss. Some of the early signs are swollen, red, bleeding gums or bad breath, which is followed by more severe symptoms like loose, shifted teeth and a dull ache in the gums. Our Periodontist can perform the following gum procedures under local anaesthesia that can alleviate the symptoms.
The Non-Surgical Options Include:
- Deep Cleaning
In this painless, single sitting procedure, plaque and tartar are removed from above and below the gum line at first. The tooth surfaces are polished and smoothened in order to prevent accumulation of bacteria. This can also be done using the latest LASER technology, which ensures minimal bleeding, quick healing and recovery.
Surgical Treatment Includes:
- Flap Surgery
- Bone Graft
- Soft Tissue Graft
- Guided Tissue Regeneration
A flap procedure cleans the roots of a tooth and repairs bone damage caused by gum disease.
This method is used to regenerate the bone. Fragments of synthetic bone are used to replace the bone destroyed by gum disease.
This method is used if the gums have receded. Gum tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and is attached to the area of recession.
This procedure is done to supplement the flap surgery when the bone, which supports your teeth is destroyed.
