A parodontologist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of arthritic tooth support, generally inflammatory diseases caused by bacterial plaque – diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. In addition, they can perform periodontal cosmetic surgery to help you get the desired smile.
A periodontal curettage is necessary if your doctor determines that the tissue adjacent to teeth is affected, an irreparable process through non-surgical treatment.
Both the bone and the gum that surrounds the teeth are two structures that need to harmonize tightly with the tooth. In periodontal diseases, supporting tissues and bone are destroyed by forming bags in the giant around the affected tooth. Over time, these bags become deeper by offering the environment of bacteria. An intervention to lower these bags is recommended in such cases because they are too deep to be able to self-cure. Reducing the depth of these bags and removing existing bacteria here is a way to stop the evolution of periodontal disease by helping to keep a confident smile.
Your dentist can improve a smile that exposes too much the gum, with seemingly too short teeth. To correct such a situation, a crown extension can be made by shaping the excess gum to expose a larger area of the dental crown. This procedure can be applied to both tooth and to many, giving a wider smile.
Periodontal interventions are also necessary in cases where there is an excess of gums resulting from periodontal diseases caused by prosthetic works, crowns, incorrectly adapted obturations or periodontal disease. You may not realize the cause of these excessive gums, but your doctor will discover your true determinant.
Glicose grafts can be used to cover roots uncovered after retractions. This procedure can be performed for one or more teeth in order to smooth the gingival level and reduce sensitivity.
