Periodontal Treatment / Gum Management
Gingivitis and periodontitis, which are long-lasting microbial infections that affect the gums and bone supporting the teeth, are examples of gum disorders. Plaque, a sticky, colourless film that accumulates on the teeth, is where they start, with the bacteria that live there. As a result, the gums become inflamed.
Gingivitis is the term for the disease that develops when the surface of the gum tissue becomes inflamed and infected. If this situation continues, deeper bone and ligament supporting systems may be affected by the surface gum inflammation. Periodontitis is the term for this. Periodontitis, a rare illness, can occasionally afflict children under certain clinical circumstances. an early loss of the permanent first molar and incisor teeth due to periodontal tissue inflammation.
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Red swollen gums
- Pus discharge
What types of periodontal management are done here?
Regularly cleaning the gum margins surrounding your teeth is essential for managing and preventing periodontal disease. The most fundamental oral hygiene practises advised for removing plaque from the area surrounding the teeth are tooth brushing and flossing. For cleaning interdental spaces, additional oral hygiene tools like toothpicks and rubber tips should be advised. Plaque can regenerate over the course of a day on your teeth, so it's crucial to visit our professional regularly for a checkup in order to preserve healthy gums and teeth. Every three months, our periodontist advises having a regular exam, followed, if necessary, by radiographic evaluation.
Non surgical therapy – scaling and root planning
A typical non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease is scaling and root planing.
Plaque and calculus in the region above the gum line are carefully removed using specialised tools. Supragingival scaling is the term for this. Subgingival scaling is required in patients with persistent periodontal disease to remove calculus from the gum pockets and below the gum line.
After that, the roots are planned or smoothed. It makes it possible to get rid of any rough spots on the root that can attract plaque and microorganisms. The gums can repair and reattach to the tooth in a healthy environment provided by a smooth, clean root surface. This will lessen the development of pockets around the teeth, so removing spaces for germs to live in and spread disease.
Surgical therapy and periodontal regeneration
Clinical conditions include extensive bone loss, bone abnormalities, root furcations, and complex root anatomy can make nonsurgical treatment for periodontitis ineffective. Surgical periodontitis can minimise gum disease and make it easier to thoroughly clean the space beneath the gum line.
The surgical operation is regarded as a small surgery that can be carried out under local anaesthesia in a dentist clinic. A small incision is made on the inside and outer gum edges of the impacted teeth once the diseased area has been located. To gain access to the tooth necks' underlying root surfaces, the gum tissues are gently pulled back from the teeth's necks. Smoothing and lightly cleaning the root surfaces. This makes it easier to remove calculus and other particles. Disease-induced erosion results in the reshaping of affected areas. When the gum tissue is stitched back into place, this will help it to firmly reattach around the teeth. Usually a week following the procedure, the stitches are removed. Because the healing proceeds quickly, patients can resume their routine activities the next day itself!
When advanced periodontitis causes significant vertical bone loss, the need for periodontal regeneration becomes apparent. As a result, there is a steady loss of bone around the teeth and with healthy periodontal attachment. Most frequently, membranes, bone graft materials, or enamel matrix proteins in the form of Emdogain gel are surgically implanted during regenerative methods.
Periodontal Maintainence therapy
Patients who have chronic periodontal disease, systemic illnesses like diabetes, or epilepsy must have regular examinations and cleanings of their teeth. Our specialist will determine and recommend the optimal time between cleanings for you.
Dental implants' surrounding soft and hard tissues become inflamed due to peri-implantitis, which also causes gingival bleeding. Our periodontist advises you to undergo a checkup if you have bleeding or have had implants in your mouth for longer than two years.
Cosmetic gum treatments
Gum recession treatment
A beautiful smile is guaranteed by having healthy gums that safeguard your teeth. Gum infections and trauma are a couple of the variables that induce gum recession. Gum recession treatments aim to put the tooth's surface back in contact with the receding gums. This substantially alters the smile and lessens the likelihood of future recession, root caries, sensitivity, and sensitivity.
Gummy smile remedy
Our smile depends heavily on our gums. When they grin, some people's gums protrude excessively. The term "gummy smile" describes this. Modern "periodontital aesthetic surgery" methods are used by our highly qualified periodontists to reshape and smooth out the uneven gum line or lengthen small teeth. We employ the most cutting-edge methods at Dr. Ronin's Smilezone Dental Clinic to guarantee less discomfort, no bleeding, and a shorter treatment time. We also guarantee that the results of such approaches are attractive to the eye.
