Periodontal Treatment in Calgary, Alberta

Scaling

Scaling is one of the most important processes in periodontal care which helps in curing gum diseases. The procedure involves removal of tarter from the tooth surface and roots. Periodontists use special instruments to clean the surface of the teeth. The instruments clean the gum pockets and reach the teeth roots to remove hardened tarter. Local anaesthesia may be used during the process to relieve patients from pain. The periodontist guides patients about routine maintenance and they may have to visit the dental practice frequently in order to keep the periodontal disease in control.

Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal surgery is performed to improve the life of gum tissues and teeth and to control the factors that give rise to periodontal infection. The surgery involves bringing back the contact between gum tissues and teeth surface. Gum pockets are eliminated during the procedure. Certain medical conditions like uncontrolled diabetes and cardiovascular disease may not be suitable for performing the periodontal surgery. Alcohol consumption should be avoided after the surgery is complete.

Gummy Smile

An attractive smile exposes minimal gum tissues. In a gummy smile more amount of gum is visible which makes the smile less attractive. This problem can be treated in many ways. A periodontist chooses a particular process based on the complexity of the condition. Laser treatment is one of the commonly performed procedures. However, in more complex cases a surgical contouring or lip repositioning may be necessary. The treatment for gummy smile can also be called crown lengthening. A periodontist or a dentist who has specialized experience in curing gum problems can treat a gummy smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implant surgery is one of the procedures performed by a periodontist. The process involves restoration of a lost tooth using Titanium or Zirconium implant which replaces the lost tooth root. The surgical process involves making an incision in the gum tissues and creating a bony recess in the bone where the implant is inserted. The gum tissues are sutured after the placement of the implant and it is left to heal for a period of few months. The dental crowns are fabricated in the lab and they are fixed over the implant using an abutment. Today there are same day implants available which do not require time to heal and the crown is ready to take the load on same day.

Gum Graft

Gum grafting is the process of surgically reconstructing the gum tissues which have receded from gum infection. Gum recession occurs because of plaque accumulation over teeth surface which gradually hardens and turns into tarter. As a result of gum infection the soft tissues are detached from the teeth and further plaque accumulation results in formation of gum pockets. Gum grafting is done to reconstruct the soft tissues so as to cover the teeth root. Soft tissues are removed from the palate region of the mouth and are used in reconstruction. Gum grafting has both esthetic and medical advantages. Patients can get a more attractive smile from the process and the teeth become less prone to decay.
