South Jersey Periodontics and Dental Implants perform a variety of different periodontal procedures which includes pocket reduction, socket preservation, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, gum grafting, sinus grafting, and frenectomy. People often do not even realize they have periodontal disease because it can be a symptomless infection in the gums and bone. As time goes on without treatment, it will get worse and destroy your natural teeth’s support. A common sign of periodontal disease is bleeding gums. Being left untreated can result in bad breath, loose teeth, bone loss, and tooth loss. Heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, stroke, and osteoporosis can also be linked to untreated periodontal disease infections. That is why it is so important to go to a dentist who can spot and treat these infections. There are three important steps in successfully treating periodontal disease: improving oral hygiene, receiving periodontal therapy, and going back to re-evaluate your mouth every few weeks. Below we will briefly discuss a few of our periodontal procedures.
Pocket reductions are often recommended after scaling and root planning are completed. This periodontal procedure helps the pockets around the teeth that are too deep to be cleaned with normal teeth brushing. Gums and teeth are cleaned while the gums are folded back. This procedure results in little to no discomfort following the procedure and no discomfort when the procedure is being performed.
Preserving a tooth socket allows for multiple tooth replacement procedures in the future. Patients often do not experience any pain with this procedure and if they do it is very minimal following the procedure. It is sometimes needed after a tooth is removed and the jawbone starts to shrink and deteriorate.
Gingivectomy is a periodontal procedure that is commonly performed to improve the appearance of excess or overgrown gingiva. Gingiva overgrowth can be caused by a buildup of plaque and tooth movement. This procedure will help remove the gingiva so your mouth can be cleaner.
