Treating Gum Disease
Gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease, is a term used to describe different conditions that affect a patient
s gums. These conditions are caused by bacteria in the mouth, primarily starting from plaque. Over time, plaque buildup will release toxins that irritate the patient
s gums. This may cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, and bleeding. If left untreated, early staged of gum disease can develop into periodontitis. In late stages, periodontitis can cause patients to lose their teeth.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a periodontal procedure that can be used to successfully treat most cases of early-stage gum disease. During this procedure, Dr. Sevor will remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the patient
s teeth using special scraping tools. This scraping will extend down below the gumline to ensure that all plaque and tartar are removed. The surfaces of the tooth roots will then be smoothed so that plaque and tartar has more difficulty re-attaching itself to the teeth, thus promoting healthy gums and an absence of infection-causing bacteria.
Maitland Dental Implants
For some patients, dental implants can be life-changing for both personal and health reasons. In a personal sense, dental implants provide prosthetic teeth to return the appearance of a full, healthy smile. As a result, patients may regain lost confidence from the appearance of their teeth.
From a health standpoint, dental implants can help to improve everyday functionality of the teeth when eating. When teeth are missing, the underlying jaw bone will begin to deteriorate from lack of use. Dental implants help to maintain the density of the jawbone over time.
Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
One of the primary uses of periodontal surgery is to eliminate and maintain gum disease and the patient
s overall oral health. We also perform cosmetic periodontal surgery, through which patients can receive the perfect smile they
ve always hoped for. Cosmetic procedures such as crown lengthening and reshaping can help the teeth to appear longer, shorter, or differently shaped, according to the patient
