Periodontal surgery may be suggested by your dentists if you are suffering from gingivitis and a periodontal pocket forms. A periodontal pocket is a result of bacteria accumulating and advancing towards your gum line. Brushing your teeth and flossing will no longer be enough to remove plaque buildup once a periodontal pocket forms. Left untreated, periodontal disease could infect the inside of the pocket and begin to deteriorate your overall health. The pockets will deepen, jeopardizing the roots of teeth, which could cause your teeth to loosen or fall out over time.
If the gum disease has not advanced to the point of surgery, your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning, also called a scaling and root planing. This method includes scraping plaque from above and below the gum line.
Dental implants are a surgical procedure in which the implant is placed into your jawbone to hold the tooth replacement in place. Our board-certified dental team can help you select the best type of implants for you if you are missing teeth due to injury, decay, disease, or infection. Call us to schedule an appointment to learn how dental implants may positively impact your life.
Through the use of non-surgical and surgical procedures, our primary goal is to help you feel the ease of living and self-esteem needed to enjoy your daily activities.
