Periodontal Services Q & A

Periodontal Services

Q: What are periodontal services, and why are they important for oral health?

A: Periodontal services focus on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions affecting the gums and supporting structures of the teeth, collectively known as the periodontium. These services are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health and preventing periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth loss and systemic health issues if left untreated. Periodontal services encompass a range of treatments aimed at addressing gum inflammation, infection, and damage, as well as restoring periodontal health and function.

Q: What types of procedures are included in periodontal services?

A: Periodontal services include a variety of procedures designed to address gum disease and maintain periodontal health. Some common periodontal treatments and procedures include:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: This non-surgical deep cleaning procedure involves removing plaque and tartar (calculus) from above and below the gum line, as well as smoothing the tooth roots to promote healing and prevent bacterial buildup.
  • Periodontal Maintenance: Following initial treatment for gum disease, ongoing periodontal maintenance visits are essential for monitoring oral health, removing plaque and tartar buildup, and preventing disease recurrence.
  • Gum Grafting: Gum graft surgery may be recommended to repair receding gums and cover exposed tooth roots, restoring gum tissue volume and reducing sensitivity.
  • Pocket Reduction Surgery: In cases of advanced gum disease with deep periodontal pockets, surgical intervention may be necessary to reduce pocket depths and eliminate bacteria, promoting gum tissue regeneration and attachment to the teeth.
  • Crown Lengthening: This surgical procedure involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth's surface, often performed to enhance the appearance of a "gummy" smile or prepare teeth for restorative treatments.
  • Dental Implants: Implant placement may be part of periodontal services to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics, particularly in cases where tooth loss is attributed to advanced gum disease.

These procedures are tailored to address various stages and manifestations of gum disease, as well as other periodontal concerns, to promote healthy gums, support structures, and overall oral health. Regular periodontal care and maintenance are essential for preventing gum disease and preserving the integrity of the teeth and surrounding tissues.  Schedule an appointment at Solay Dental by phone or request one online today.
