Treating Gum Disease

Gum disease is a common gum infection, also known as a mild form of gingivitis. More severe forms of gum disease are considered periodontitis, which leads to serious health issues if left untreated. A patient could expect treatment to include a few visits, including scaling and deep cleaning. These treatments would be followed up by appointments every few months with a periodontist, consisting of  periodontal maintenance cleanings and checkups. In cases where the severity of the periodontal disease has reached a more serious level, surgery may be required. Surgery sometimes includes bone grafting, gum reconstruction, and debridement, to name a few.

Implant Procedures

Compared to conventional dentures and bridges, dental implants are currently considered to be the best option for tooth replacement. Because they’re similar to natural teeth, dental implants offer patients a more attractive smile, in a convenient package. If bone loss is an issue, dental implants are the only solution or treatment alternative where gum disease is an issue. Bone loss directly impacts the overall shape of a patient’s face because it affects the oral cavity.

When a tooth in bad health is being extracted, bone grafts must be done quickly. Thanks to new and emerging technology, dental implants may be placed  the same day – meaning less time spent without a tooth. A missing tooth may require sinus/ridge augmentations to provide a solid bone foundation. A better foundation produces more successful future implant therapies, reducing the risk of possible complications – affecting results.
