Periodontal Treatment (Gum Surgery)
Depending on the stage or type of gum infection, you may need a surgery. There are different types of gum surgery:
- Pocket reduction: also known as gingival flap surgery, this procedure is performed to clear out the bacteria within your gum flaps and secure the gum against your teeth instead of letting it grow back on its own.
- Regeneration: This procedure includes the insertion of bone grafts, membranes, tissue-stimulating proteins after removing the disease-causing bacteria.
- Crown lengthening: This procedure includes removing the overgrowth of your gums to make your teeth appear longer.
- Soft tissue graft: Whether caused by aggressive brushing or gum disease, gum recession can lead to many issues down the line. To help halt and heal receding gums, tissue from the roof of the mouth is grafted onto the gums in order to protect the roots of your teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last of the molars that appear at the age of 18 to 25. Usually when these teeth appear, they don’t have enough space to emerge. This can cause immense pain and result in the removal of your wisdom teeth. Other reasons could be that they are impacted or infected, they erupted at the wrong angle and pressed on the adjacent teeth, or you have gum disease.
There are a number of reasons why you may have to get your teeth pulled out. It could be that they are damaged beyond repair from trauma or decay. Sometimes extracting a tooth is the only option to help you save the integrity of your mouth. You can also opt for tooth extraction if you have an infection or a crowded mouth.
This technique is used to calm down patients during procedures. Patients feel drowsy, relaxed and the technique produces a state of calmness in the central nervous system. This makes it easier for the dentist to carry out the procedure without the patient panicking. Conscious sedation allows the patient to have verbal communication with the dentist.
