Periodontology And Implantology

We are a modern Dental Clinic

Periodontology or periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. This deals with the diagnosis, and treatment of a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth also known as gum disease.

Periodontology and implantology go hand in hand. These two branches are dedicated to gums and underlying bone health along with the supporting structures around the teeth.

Gum disease is caused by gum infection due to poor oral hygiene & sometimes due to some systemic disease/ medications leading to gum bleeding, jaw bone loss, and loosening of teeth.

Oral prophylaxis/Scaling is the cleaning of built-up debris from the

teeth which include softened food particles (plaque) or hardened food remnants along with saliva minerals (calculus/ tartar). Plaque and calculus are the main culprits which cause gum disease.

After scaling, each patient will be given tailored instructions on oral hygiene maintenance for keeping gums healthy. This procedure is done mainly under topical(spray) anesthesia.

Implantology seeks to replace missing, carious, or malformed teeth. In these cases, an artificial implant is inserted into the underlying bone structure. It usually takes a period of time to be accepted by our body and heal. Once the abutment is in place a crown is placed on top to replicate the missing natural tooth.

Implants though very expensive when introduced initially, have now become more commonplace and affordable with the advent of newer technology over the last decade or more. It is now a regular practice to replace one’s missing tooth with implants. As with a lot of medical equipment, there are varying grades and qualities available. Ask your Specialist for the brand or type which is best for you.

In other more complicated cases, there could be a number of implants supporting the same or a larger number of crowns. This will help restore a natural smile and oral function to severely malformed or missing teeth.
