Gum Disease Treatments
Gum disease is a result of the gum infection called mild gingivitis. Periodontitis is more severe gum disease. You should treat periodontitis early to prevent more significant health issues. Treatments will involve a couple of trips to your periodontist and procedures like deep cleaning and scaling. Subsequent appointments are usually well spread out– sometimes a few months apart. They involve periodontal maintenance, cleanings, and checkups.
Patients may need to undergo surgery if their periodontal disease is at a severe stage. For instance, surgeries are required for debridement, gum reconstruction, and grafting, among others.
There are a few tooth replacement methods are possible – conventional dentures and bridges, as well as dental implants, which is often the most comfortable. Dental implants offer a very close replica of natural teeth. The patient’s smile is attractive as ever with maximum convenience. Dental implants are the best way to maintain bone . After all, bone loss affects the oral cavity, and by extension, the entire face. Dental implants are one of the many treatments for maintaining bone.
The extraction of a bad tooth is often followed by bone grafting. This used to be an issue until the introduction of state-of-the-art dental technologies. Dental implants can now be placed faster, ensuring that the patient does not go very long without a tooth. It is vital to ensure a solid bone foundation when a tooth is missing. This can be done by bone grafting, and minimally invasive sinus or ridge augmentations.
The chances of subsequent future implant therapies being successful are higher with a better bone foundation. It also reduces the risk of possible complications and inaccurate results.
