Periodontics

This branch of dentistry is concerned with the study and treatment of the supporting structures and tissues surrounding the teeth.

Calculus encrustations on the teeth, which form over and under the gum, act as an irritant to the underlying tissues.

Food accumulating on the neck of the tooth and irregularities such as cavities or poorly constructed dental appliances also act as irritants. In addition, imbalance of tooth-cusp relationships may force food particles into the gums.

Hence, it causes gingivitis (inflammation of the gum) or infections that destroy the gum tissue and bone.

The role of our periodontist is to prevent the occurrence of infection that affects the periodontium.

He specializes in a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment to fulfill this role. Non-surgical periodontal treatment is appropriate in the early and moderate stages of periodontal disease.

If there is a great deal of bone loss, then surgical periodontal treatment is required.

Periodontal treatment includes

Oral Prophylaxis

This Includes scaling (cleaning), polishing and oral hygiene instructions and methods to prevent tooth decay and methods to maintain your oral, hard and soft tissues.
The removal of calculus with curettes (tools for scraping) and scalers application of medicines to the soft tissues.
Loosened teeth are splinted together for support during the healing process
Infected or necrotized gum tissue is excised
Malocclusions are corrected by grinding the teeth to obtain effective occlusal relationships.

Gum Treatment

Gum treatment includes scaling and polishing, gingival curettage, periodontal flap surgery and other surgeries related to gum.

Gum Lift

Sometimes, excessive gum tissue creates the appearance of "short" teeth. An aesthetic dentist shifts the gums to a position that reveals more of the teeth and less of the gums. This procedure, also known as crown lengthening or gum re-contouring, sometimes requires cutting out gum and bone around the teeth. Gum lifts are also useful in exposing enough of a damaged or decayed tooth so that a restoration procedure can be performed.

Gingivectomy

Surgery is another option for treating a "gummy smile" that covers much of the teeth. In these cases, excess gum tissue (and, if necessary, underlying bone) is removed to expose more of the teeth. This excision can be done using either hand-held instruments, lasers, or a combination of both.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth prophylaxis can help restore oral health and functionality.

This is a way of doing complete treatment in the oral cavity which includes fillings, root canal treatment, gum surgeries, ceramic crown and bridges. This is a holistic treatment keeping aesthetics and function in mind.
