We also offer a variety of treatment options to help tackle the symptoms and heal the gums. If you have fears that your gums are not healthy, give us a call on 516-289-9312 to book an appointment with Dr. Ginsberg or Dr. Batalias for you to receive a thorough periodontal examination.
In most instances, conventional periodontal treatment is very efficient for treating gum disease. Conventional gum treatment through deep cleaning, or laser dentistry and the use of specific delivery of antibiotics is highly efficient for the treatment of several gum diseases. In certain cases, having gum disease surgery such as grafting, bone, and gum reconstruction through bone grafting, ridge augmentation, debridement, and/or gum grafting procedures is highly recommended. Dr. Ginsberg and his team can help take care of your gum disease, save your teeth, and nurse your gums back to health through the use of advanced periodontics and cosmetic dential practices.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease, popularly referred to as gum disease, is a common infection of the gums. In general, practitioners refer to the mild type as gingivitis, while the moderate or severe form is referred to as periodontitis. Periodontal disease is treatable, but if left unchecked, it can result in serious oral health issues. Treatment for most mild to moderate cases can be as simple as one or two visits for scaling and deep cleaning (root planning) followed by frequent cleaning appointments at a periodontal office after every three to four months interval. For severe cases, gum surgical procedures with or without soft tissue or bone grafting procedures might be needed.
Dental Implant Procedures
Conventional dentures and bridges are limited. Dental implants are now widely regarded as the best fit solution for tooth replacement. They’re not just more attractive and convenient for patients because they are similar to natural teeth, and they are also the only available treatment alternative that reliably fights bone loss. Bone loss in the oral cavity can impact the shape and look of an individual’s facial structure.
In most instances, a tooth with a poor diagnosis is extracted, and a bone graft is done immediately. With the emergence of new technology, an implant can be performed on the same day in some cases. This enables a faster treatment time before the final prosthesis is completed. In instances of missing teeth, it is not unusual for a patient to require sinus or ridge augmentation at first to have a solid bone foundation for future implant therapy. A reliable bone and soft tissue foundation reduces the risk of future complications and ensures a much-improved result.
