Requiring three additional years of education, periodontics is a specialized branch of dental care. Periodontal disease diagnosis, prevention, and treatment inhibit irreversible damage to the gum and jaw. Periodontists utilize specific forms of treatment to stop gum disease, save gum tissue, as well as the teeth they surround and support.
Why Should You Seek Periodontal Treatment
Gum disease often begins with mild inflammation and is sometimes referred to as gingivitis – also known as periodontal disease. Most commonly identified by bleeding, painful, red, and swollen gums, this condition requires a specialized professional’s immediate care, especially for the treatment of invisible symptoms. Periodontal disease is a severe condition, resulting in the loss of teeth and gum tissue when left untreated for long periods.
Bacteria found in plaque cause an infection within the gum and surrounding tissues, leading to periodontal disease. This infection creates painful and irritated gums and, when left untreated, gum tissue and jawbone will start to recede – leaving behind weak teeth. Several issues require serious periodontal treatment, including:
- Moderate & Advanced Periodontal Disease – When most gums become red and swollen while bleeding, gum tissue, and jawbone will begin to recede.
- Localized Tissue Recession – The initial infection typically begins in a centralized location. Excessive brushing, using a stiff bristle brush, and crooked teeth, all contribute to gum recession. Preventing progression requires immediate treatment, with a specialized periodontist.
- Crown Lengthening – Lengthening the visible portion of a tooth is done by adjusting the soft and hard surrounding tissue. This procedure provides more room for tooth exposure, assisting in more retentive restorations, and the improved fit of dental crowns.
- Periodontal Procedures – An uneven gum line may be improved with a simple procedure, known as recontouring. Periodontists begin by treating bacterial infections, sometimes with antibiotics, and periodontitis, before initial recontouring treatments.
In more moderate cases of periodontal disease, our periodontist may put more effort into treating bacterial infections. Additionally, we will offer advice on proper cleaning methods at home for long term success. Deep scaling may provide the teeth and gum tissues with more direct removal of tartar or bacterial plaque. For more serious, advanced periodontal disease cases, where the jawbone has significant regression, intense cleaning is essential. When weak teeth are not good candidates for preservation, extractions may be required.
Periodontists are trained well in various dental procedures areas to restore the full oral functionality. This is especially true for teeth that have been affected or plagued by gum disease. It’s important to note that periodontal disease is a continuous battle requiring removing calculus and bacterial buildup to stop the infection’s overall spread, keeping the situation under control.
