Cosmetic Periodontal Procedures in Orlando
Laser Periodontal Therapy
Laser periodontal therapy is used primarily to treat varying stages of gum disease, which in turn will improve your overall oral health. Laser gum surgery is particularly popular because it causes less bleeding and pain during and after the procedure. Laser technology also makes the procedure smoother for periodontists, as it allows them to isolate the removal of diseased and unhealthy tissue, and maintain the height of the gums around the teeth with greater ease.
For patients who have experienced atrophy or deterioration of the jawbone, bone grafting is the perfect solution. Grafting allows the periodontist to create a suitable jawbone width and length that can accommodate dental implants, in addition to looking aesthetically pleasing. The procedure involves obtaining donor bone from a tissue bank, the patient’s own body, or synthetic bone material, for use as a graft. Bone grafting also helps dental implants look better, last longer, and require less maintenance in the long term.
Dental implants are mainly sought by patients with missing teeth. The process, which involves receiving implants and attaching prosthetics, typically takes around six to eight months, and requires a total of two surgical procedures. First, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The second procedure is geared toward maintenance, and requires the patient to wear temporary dentures and maintain a strict diet of soft foods.
For patients who need a bite adjustment, several periodontal procedures can be used. An abnormal bite can do significant damage to the teeth or jaws, and we specialize in helping patients return to a safe, healthy bite.
Tooth Reshaping involves reshaping the surfaces of the teeth that make abnormal contact when biting. It reduces excessive bite pressure on the teeth, and redistributes that pressure across all teeth to minimize the risk of damage.
These are plastic bite guards customized to suit each patient’s mouth, and keep their teeth apart. A simple and painless method of realigning a patient’s bite, they can be used both day and night.
Braces are the most widely known periodontal treatment for bite adjustment. Usually metal or ceramic brackets that bond to the surface of the teeth, they are tightened using wire, and correct the position of the teeth through physical pressure.
