What is Gum Disease?
Gum Disease or Periodontal Disease is a common condition that affects every 9 in 10 people. It often leads to the inflammation of the gums and can affect the tissue around the teeth and the gums which ultimately causes swelling and redness. In addition to this, Gum Disease can equate to gum pain, bone damage and damage to the ligaments that hold the teeth in place.
In our dental clinic we have highly qualified and experienced staff in cases of gum disease, if you suffer from this disease it is important that a professional in the sector evaluate your case and proceed to treatment.
Types of gum disease treatments
Scaling and root planing
It is a deep cleaning that consists of two phases, in the first of scaling the dentist removes all the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. Once the scaling is finished we start with root planing, smoothing out your teeth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth.
If residual bags remain after scaling, they must be removed for not being colonized by bacteria. Regeneration of the lost tissues will be carried out through the use of membranes or matrix derived from the enamel, and recessions will be covered by gum grafts in the teeth.
In some cases, we can regenerate the lost bone. Basically, in cases where there are vertical intraosseous defects. Depending on the morphology of the defect, we can resort to proteins derived from the enamel matrix, or to regeneration with collagen membranes.
Gum Graft or “Pinhole” method
The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive alternative to treating gingival recession. Unlike soft-tissue grafting, this technique begins by creating a pinhole in the gum tissue that is receding. Once the pinhole has been created, a device is placed into the hole.
This device uses specialized instruments which peels and stretches the gum into a healthier and more suitable position on the tooth (in layman’s terms, the gums are brought downward) and then it is added collagen material which stabilizes the area of gum recession.
