BM Cosmetic - Periodontal Surgery
Our teeth play a vital role not only in our digestion process but also in our appearance. Many people, however, overlook the importance of gum health. Periodontal issues can be as damaging and critical as dental cavities or misalignment.
At BM Cosmetic, we pride ourselves on offering advanced periodontal treatment in Chennai, ensuring optimal dental health for our patients.
What is Periodontal Surgery?
Periodontal surgery, essentially, is a dental procedure meant to treat gum diseases. When regular dental cleaning doesn’t yield results for gum health, periodontal surgery becomes the next step to address deeper gum issues. This surgery helps in cleaning the roots of teeth to ensure that gums reattach to the teeth properly.
Common Symptoms of Periodontal Issues:
- Persistent bad breath despite regular brushing or using mouthwash
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender or bleeding gums
- Painful chewing
- Loose teeth or loss of teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Gums pulling away from teeth or receding gums
If you notice any of these symptoms, it might be time to consider periodontal treatment in Chennai, particularly at our well-equipped BM Cosmetic clinic.
Types of Periodontal Treatment Options Available in BM Cosmetic:
At BM Cosmetic, we understand the intricacies and complexities associated with periodontal issues. Not all periodontal conditions are the same, and therefore, different treatments are devised to tackle unique challenges. Here’s a deeper dive into the several periodontal treatment options we offer:
- Scaling and Root Planning: Scaling and root planning is a non-surgical procedure that involves cleaning the tooth root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar. It helps in decreasing inflammation and gum pocket depth.
- Periodontal Flap Surgery: For deeper periodontal issues, flap surgery might be recommended. This involves making small cuts in the gum to lift a section away, clean the roots, and then secure the gum back in place. The procedure is effective in treating deep gum pockets and bone loss, which can’t be handled by non-surgical treatments alone.
- Bone Grafts: Bone grafts are used when the bone surrounding the tooth root has been damaged. Bone grafting involves using fragments of synthetic bone, donor bone, or the patient’s bone to replace the lost bone. Over time, this graft helps the body regenerate its bones. It stabilises teeth and increases the likelihood of saving teeth that might otherwise be lost to advanced periodontal disease.
- Tissue Regeneration: This involves placing a special type of mesh between the gum tissue and bone to allow the bone to grow back. It encourages the body’s natural ability to regenerate and restore the periodontal structure.
- Soft Tissue Grafts: Soft tissue grafts help to cover exposed tooth roots by adding tissue. It decreases further gum recession, protects the root from decay, and lessens tooth sensitivity. It also enhances the appearance of the smile.
- Guided Tissue Regeneration: Done in combination with flap surgery, it promotes natural bone regeneration. This procedure is specifically designed to stabilise endangered teeth by naturally regenerating bone and tissue.
Benefits of Periodontal Surgery:
