Our surgical advanced gum disease treatment techniques will treat and stabilise severe gum disease and get your gum health back on track in the future.
Advanced gum disease treatment can:
The soft tissues along your gum line are susceptible to pulling away from your teeth when acidic plaque buildup damages them. When pockets form, this becomes problematic for your oral health, as plaque can find its way beneath your gum line and deteriorate your jawbone. Once this deterioration starts, it can cause teeth to become loose, fail, and require extraction.
Pocket reduction can prevent bone deterioration as long as it’s diagnosed early. It removes tartar and plaque under the tooth roots and reduces the space around each tooth’s area within the gum line.
Guided bone regeneration
Even if severe bone loss has happened as a result of advanced disease, there is still the possibility of addressing and reversing the damage and the aesthetic changes that have occurred.
Guided bone regeneration will restore the areas of the jaw that have diminished due to gum disease. The procedure creates new bone over a period of 6 months. Once treatment is complete, your face will have a ‘fuller’ aesthetic since your jawbone will be abundant in volume again (this can be a real morale and confidence booster).
The procedure also results in a jawbone that’s more capable of supporting healthy teeth. It’s a life-altering undertaking.
Soft tissue grafts
Gum recession is a common problem, especially among people who brush too hard and have gum disease. If your gum starts to recede significantly, the bone underneath is at high risk of advanced gum disease. We can perform a tissue graft to reconstruct the area where the gum has been lost. Not only does this protect your jawbone, but it also protects areas of the tooth that are not protected with enamel, reducing the possibility of enamel erosion and decay.Back to Hygiene Treatments
