Periodontal Treatments Available at Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice
A more involved version of the plaque removal performed during a standard teeth cleaning, scaling refers to scraping plaque from the tooth surface. By removing this plaque, our hygienists and periodontist allows your teeth and gums to recover from the presence of bacteria. Scaling may be done without anaesthesia, as it targets the crown and is not typically painful. If an accumulation of plaque is present on your teeth, local anaesthesia may be helpful.
Deep Scale and Root Planing
While scaling is done to the tooth’s crown, root planing aims below the gum line to remove hidden plaque from the tooth root. This root-level plaque is especially insidious and can lead to the formation of gum pockets, gum recession, and even tooth loss. Teeth Deep Scaling (Deep Cleaning) and Root Planing will clean away plaque and tartar, as well as smooth the root surface to make it more difficult for bacteria to adhere.
When plaque and bacteria have become lodged deeply in the space between teeth and gums, physical removal may not terminate the infection. Antibiotics may be taken or applied to the infected area to heal it and prevent further disease. Tiny antibiotic packets may be placed in periodontal pockets to protect the fragile area and ultimately decrease pocket size.
After periodontal disease, your gum line may not be the same. Gums will have receded; pockets may gape between teeth and gums; your smile could have changed. In order to return your gums to a preferred state, our expert periodontist offers cosmetic periodontal surgery including the new tunneling technique. “Periodontal surgery” is a general term for treatments that sculpt the gum line. Our ultimate goal is to balance your tooth exposure and gum height so that your smile is aesthetically ideal.
We Offer an Extensive Range of Gum Treatments
Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice is reputed for its reliable and reasonably-priced surgical and non-surgical medical care for curing maladies of the gum. Some of the periodontal treatments that we offer are:
This is a surgical procedure which involves the use of fragments of bone or synthetic bone as a substitute for the bone destroyed by gum disease. The grafts help to restore stability to your teeth and promote regrowth of bone.
This procedure is performed when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed. It helps to stimulate gum tissue and bone growth.
If your gums have swollen and cover too much tooth surface, our periodontist is able to remove the excess gum and reveal the healthy tooth beneath.
After your periodontal disease has healed, you may be left with unsightly pockets that once held accumulated plaque. Dr. Garcia is able to suture those pockets to reduce their size and prevent reinfection of the area.
tissue graft will take tissue from a healthy area of the mouth and connect it to the receding gum line. This not only protects the tooth root, it improves an overly toothy smile.
