Gum Disease Treatment in Revere

Periodontal services are advanced dental treatments specifically designed for the treatment of periodontitis, also known as gum disease. This is a condition that occurs when the gums become irritated due to prolonged exposure to plaque, tartar and bacteria. The condition leads to the development of periodontal pockets that allow the unwanted material to spread further. If periodontitis is left untreated, it is likely that tooth loss and jawbone deterioration will occur.

If we determine that you are suffering from periodontitis, we will likely recommend one or more periodontal services to restore your oral health. We offer scaling and root planing, gum graft surgery, dental crown lengthening, gingivectomy, osseous surgery, ridge augmentation, ridge preservation, sinus lift and bone grafting. Receiving the recommended treatment quickly is crucial for preventing the condition from worsening. If the condition continues to progress, then it is very likely that serious damage will occur, and more advanced treatment will be required.

What is scaling and root planing?

Scaling and root planing is a standard treatment for periodontitis. It involves accessing the areas and spaces below the gum line to remove any buildups of bacteria, tartar and plaque and smoothing the root surface to prevent further buildup. The treatment has a high success rate in stopping the spread of gum disease.

What is gum graft surgery?

Gum graft surgery is a procedure that involves harvesting the gum tissue from other oral areas to cover up the exposed root surfaces that often develop with periodontitis. This procedure prevents the development of infections, and it can restore the patient’s appearance.

What is dental crown lengthening?

Dental crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that is often used when a patient is suffering from gum disease. The procedure involves cutting into any diseased or damaged gum tissue so that it can be removed and reshaped. This can help eliminate a “gummy” smile that often occurs with periodontitis.

What is a gingivectomy?

A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that is provided for patients suffering from moderate to severe periodontitis. The goal with this procedure is to access the periodontal pockets directly and eliminate that unwanted matter occupying these spaces. This is often the only way to treat more severe cases of periodontitis, in which the buildups cannot be accessed through scaling and root planing.

What is osseous surgery?

Osseous surgery is an advanced procedure used to treat more serious cases of periodontitis. This technique involves cutting into the patient’s gum tissue and flapping it up. This will allow our team to access and remove the unwanted tartar and plaque from the area. The patient’s periodontal pockets should then begin to shrink in size and eventually disappear.

What is ridge augmentation?

Ridge augmentation is a procedure commonly performed following tooth loss that occurs with periodontitis. This technique involves applying bone grafts to the alveolar ridge bone to help the structure recover. The bone grafts will help encourage new bone growth and strengthen the jawbone so that a dental implant to replace the lost tooth can be installed later.

What is ridge preservation?

Ridge preservation is a technique designed to prevent jawbone deterioration following tooth loss. During a ridge preservation procedure, we will apply bone grafts directly to the empty socket of a lost tooth. This will slow down any deterioration and make it easier to install a dental implant at a later date.

What is a sinus lift?

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that makes it easier to install implants in the upper jawbone. If a patient experiences significant bone loss, then the sinuses will get in the way when implants are installed. A sinus lift can be used to push the sinus membrane up and out of the way so that implants can be safely installed to replace any missing teeth.

What is bone grafting?

Bone grafting is a technique used to restore and regenerate lost bone material following a serious bout with periodontitis. Our team will surgically access the damaged and deteriorated jawbone and apply artificial bone-like material and special proteins to the structure. This will encourage new bone growth and healing so that dental implants can be installed successfully.
