Gum Treatment

Gum treatment is necessary to face periodontal disease. This is one of the main causes of tooth loss in adults. They are caused by bacterial infections and can appear at any age.

The infection begins with a buildup of plaque, an invisible, sticky, bacteria-laden film that deposits on the teeth every day and forms where the teeth and gums meet.

And if plaque is not removed daily with a toothbrush and floss, it hardens. It then turns into tartar (also called calculus) that resists brushing and flossing, causing inflammation or deterioration of the gums or bone tissue.

It is important to note that periodontal disease can be asymptomatic in its early stages, which is why it is essential to see a dentist regularly for routine checkups. Prevention, early detection and treatment of periodontal disease are essential to maintain long-term oral health. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is recommended that you consult a dental health professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Treatments offered in periodontics

Treatments offered in periodontics

Root planing: The dentist scales the teeth and root surfaces (sometimes under local anesthesia) to remove debris and bacteria that cause infection. Root planing is recommended to treat gingivitis and periodontitis when the gum cavity is greater than 5 mm or when toothbrushing and flossing are no longer effective.

Gingivoplasty (hard tissue remodelling): Gingival recession (reclining gums) caused by periodontitis makes teeth appear longer. The dentist or specialist can graft tissue to straighten the gums, making them more aesthetic and functional.

Osteoplasty (bone remodelling): Once periodontitis has been treated, the dentist or specialist can remodel the bone support to add stability to the teeth and restore a natural, aesthetic appearance to the smile.

Bone grafting: In very specific cases where bone loss occurs, bone grafting corrects defects in bone tissue to strengthen teeth.

Periodontal disease can be controlled with a rigorous home dental hygiene program and follow-up visits to the dentist.
