Treating gums involves a variety of procedures for gum disease elimination and treatment before worsening. If left unattended, several oral health conditions might prop up. Some of the conditions are loose teeth, tooth loss, receding gums, and bone deterioration, eventually increasing the vulnerability to other diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
The periodontal team at Ueno Center Dental Specialists is committed to ensuring your life is free from these oral health hazards through the provision of the following services:
Upon evaluating your individual dental needs, the team is likely to recommend a range of treatments, from nonsurgical for managing bacterial growth to surgical procedures for tissue restoration and anchoring your teeth.
Dental cleaning – the periodontist will remove tartar and plaque that hardens on the teeth from below the gum line upwards on all the teeth. The cleaning is a proactive measure for staving off its development.
Root planing and scaling – after deep cleaning and scraping away the tartar and plaque below and above the gum line, the tooth is made smooth of any rough spots. Scaling and root planing are considered to clean the surface of calculus and plaque, thereby offering teeth reattachment to the gums and removing bacteria.
Customized – Gum inflammation and plaque managed by using painkillers like paracetamol and antibiotics like amoxicillin for people allergic to penicillin and metronidazole, which needs you to abstain from alcohol for about 48 hours to avoid a bad reaction with the drug.
Bone grafting – the procedure uses your own bone fragments for regrowth, restoring the stability of the teeth. The periodontist inserts a synthetic to facilitate the new growth of healthy bone tissues. The procedure helps to avoid or stop deterioration and decay of the bone.
Flap surgery – involves lifting the gums to remove tartar and smoothing irregular surfaces on damaged root surfaces, thus limiting areas for bacteria hideouts. The gums are snugly placed back, reducing the spaces between the tooth and gums, leaving no chance for bacterial inhibition.
Observing a good oral hygiene practice is the best remedy to combat gum disease. Additionally, there are necessary medical interventions and dental treatments to apply and recover your health. These hygienic oral practices include:
- Regularly brush your teeth with a fluoride paste before going to bed.
- Daily flossing your teeth with interdentals.
- Avoid smoking.
