Major Procedures Involved With Periodontics
Dental implants solve the problem of one or more teeth lost to periodontal disease or another reason. You don’t have to suffer the embarrassment of missing teeth. With dental implants, a realistic faux tooth can be implanted in its place to give you the appearance of a full and natural looking smile.
Dental implants help with a variety of issues surrounding missing teeth. The implant allows the periodontist to place a tooth where the empty cavity was. When a tooth is missing, it can interfere with speaking, chewing and the alignment of neighboring teeth. With dental implants, these problems can be solved.
When periodontal disease is present, or when the gums are receding around the teeth, the teeth become unhealthy. Over time, this can lead to the loss of the tooth. Gum recession is a condition where the gum comes away from the tooth. This forms a pocket where bacteria can reside. In turn, that bacteria eats away at the tooth. Gum grafts can correct this problem.
A gum tissue graft is simply a procedure where healthy skin is grafted from the roof of your mouth or another place and grafted where the gums have receded around the unhealthy tooth. The tissue then grows and forms part of the new gum tissue. The end result is completely natural looking and helps to keep your tooth healthy.
Some patients have severe bone loss in the jaw. In a case like this, the bone may no longer be sufficient to support the teeth. This results in loose teeth and ultimately the teeth may fall out. With bone grafting, the periodontist helps to promote new bone growth so that a dental implant can be placed in the future. This helps to restore functionality and the aesthetic appearance of the jaw and teeth.
Bone graft materials may be harvested from your own bone or another place. They are then surgically inserted into the area of the jaw that needs the bone growth. The graft regenerates the bone in the jaw, resulting in more bone to strengthen and heal the oral structure.
If you have fear or phobia around visiting the dentist, it’s likely that you may have avoided having regular dental checkups over the years. This is the kind of situation that usually leads to periodontal disease. Now, with advanced treatments and the option to have sedation dentistry, you can finally relax about going to the dentist!
