Do not leave your periodontal disease without treatment

First steps

It is the first phase of periodontal treatment. It focuses on eradicating the main cause of gum problems: BACTERIA. It is necessary a mechanical treatment (scaling and smoothing of the root), and in some cases also chemical (antibiotics).

Periodontal disease is caused by an imbalance between the bacteria that coexist in our mouth and our defenses. Either increase the bacteria or lower the defenses. This imbalance favors the growth of pathogenic species that are more aggressive to our gums, and that do not disappear only by scraping. Therefore, to make sure that the treatment is effective, we make a sample with paper tips that are inserted into the gum (it is not a painful procedure). This is sent to the laboratory to determine the presence and proportion of periodontal pathogens. Depending on the result we will see if you have to take an antibiotic and how specific.

Gum Graft

The grafts can be made in the teeth, in the implants or in the areas where pieces are missing to recover the lost volume after an extraction. They can be done for different purposes: Covering of exposed dental roots (can occur by aggressive brushing, bad position of teeth, perforations …) Enlarged gum inserted (in areas with traction of “frenillos” or short vestibule bottom). Higher thickness in areas where a tooth is missing to improve hygiene and aesthetics. Increase of volume of the gums in dental implants. It is a microsurgical technique, very meticulous, but with spectacular results in many cases. For the success of the treatment it is imperative that the patient does not smoke, since the tobacco compromises the vascularization of the graft.

Periodontal regeneration

In some cases we can regenerate the lost bone, where there are vertical defects. Depending on the morphology of the defect we can use proteins derived from the enamel matrix, or regeneration with collagen membranes.

To regenerate it is essential that the patient does not smoke, and if the teeth have mobility, they must be fertilized beforehand.

The surgery is to take some tissue from your palate and insert it in the necessary place. You will have small stitches on both sides.

Important. You must perform periodontal maintenance (professional cleaning at least a week before surgery) and after surgery we need a control to eliminate the points of the palate in a week, and a week later we do the final control to eliminate the points of the surgery. tissue graft
