Surgical Treatments for Gum Diseases

Flap surgery/pocket reduction surgery: In this procedure the gums are lifted & calculus is removed. Irregular surfaces of bone are smoothened. The gums are then placed so that it fits snugly around the tooth. This reduces the size of the space between the gum & tooth, decreasing the areas where harmful bacteria can grow.

Bone grafts: involves using fragments of your own bone, synthetic bone to replace bone destroyed by gum disease. The grafts serve as a platform for the regrowth of bone, which restores stability of teeth.

Soft tissue grafts: This procedure reinforces thin gums or fills in places where gums have receded. Protect root surface from sensitivity, caries/abrasions & improves hygiene.

Depigmentation of dark gums: Pigmentation affects most of gum tissue with a complete brown appearance. The pigmentation can be completely removed surgically. Discomfort to the patient pre & post surgery is minimal.

Crown lengthening: is a surgical technique for gummy smile. It is a procedure performed to expose greater amount of tooth structure to restore prosthetically & esthetically. Appropriate crown margins can violate the requirements for periodontal health. An Inappropriate crown margin increases plaque accumulation in close proximity to bone crest.

Guided tissue regeneration: is a procedure in which a barrier membrane is placed under the gum & over the remaining bone. It is performed to stimulate growth when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed. A small piece of mesh-like fabric is inserted between the bone & gum tissue.

Bone surgery: modifies bone support altered by periodontal disease, either by reshaping the bone, without removal or by the removal of some alveolar bone.

  • Laser treatment is becoming widely recognised and can be applied to prevent caries from developing and to reduce the progression of caries.
  • The mechanism of laser should be understood before a dentist could apply in his daily practice.
  • The Enamel surface of tooth is made of crystals called ‘Hydroxyapetite’ and it is permeable in nature therefore allowing diffusion of ions.
  • During laser treatment, moderate heat(CO2 laser produces temp > 1000 degree celcius) is produced which changes the composition of Enamel from ‘hydroxyapetite’ to ‘carbonated apetite’ in which there is loss of water in the crystals, as a result the pores of Enamel shrink down to form ‘Microspace system’. The Microspace system provides a means for trapping Calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions which release during demineralization and acts as site for re-precipitation.
  • The trapped minerals phases inside the Enamel and impedes lesion formation and progression causing enhanced resistance against demineralization.
  • As the microspaces are smaller in size, it decreases the permeability of the Enamel thereby reducing the diffusion of ions in and out thereby reducing the demineralization process. Thus a seal is achieved and so is resistance to caries.
  • The Dentin also gets acid resistance as there is increased mineral content due to burning of organic matter from tissue so there is increased Calcium and Phosphate found in recrystallized Dentin.

Something You Must Know Before Any Dental Implant

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed by your surgeon into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. Dental implants can be helpful option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury or some periodontal disease.

Available Types Of Dental Implants:

There are two types of dental implants and you must have a brief knowledge about them before going for Low Cost Dental Implants.

Endosteal Dental Implants:

This is the most commonly used type of implant which actually goes inside the bone. The various types include screws, blades surgically placed into the bone of your jaw. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth.

Sub periosteal Dental Implants:

These dental implants are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum holding the prosthesis teeth.

I would suggest for trying the services of Sachdeva Dental care instead of searching on Google. They are good in this work and even imparting training in several Dental Implant Courses.

Most of us also have this question before this kind of surgery. Am I a candidate for dental implant? Well, if you have lost your teeth then you are a candidate for this. Certainly good health is vital in this type of treatment too as there are few health conditions and diseases that can affect whether dental implants are right for you or not. If you are having uncontrolled diabetes, any sort of addiction, radiation to the jaws, uncontrolled periodontal disease and cancer may affect whether dental implants will fuse to your bone or not. Where and how such implants are placed requires a detailed assessment of your overall stomato-gnathic system within which the teeth function.componeers

This sort of surgery will yield to a great help for your smile if it is done by expert hands. I had shared about Best Dental Implant Delhi in this post. You should try them. Always remember, it is pretty necessary to let your dental surgeon know all about your past and present medical status along with all medications you are taking nowadays.
