Patient Education

Periodontal disease refers to the problems of the gums and oral inflammation. Our dentists complete a thorough diagnosis and prepare a treatment plan. The plan focuses on preventing any further spread of the periodontal disease. If the disease is in the primary stage, the method of treatment includes scaling and root planing. However, in case the infection reaches deep inside the gums, it is necessary to perform surgical procedures to take care of the damage.

Periodontal disease is one of the serious problems faced by a majority of the people. However, it can be easily prevented by following proper oral hygiene techniques and regular dental check-ups. In cases when the non-surgical procedures are unable to yield results, it is necessary that one undergoes surgical procedures such as pocket reduction procedures, regenerative procedures and tissue grafts.

Tartar is also known as calculus. It is the dental plaque that has accumulated on the teeth and gums and hardened. Therefore, it becomes difficult for us to remove this by ourselves. There are times when the tartar reaches underneath the gum line and even affects the gum tissues. There are serious health implications from the excessive growth of tartar as it can lead to cavities and gum diseases.

Tartar is also a cosmetic problem because it has the ability to make the teeth appear dirty and unhygienic. As tartar is porous, it absorbs all the stains from food items and drinks and can make teeth appear unclean. Therefore, one should seek immediate consultation with a dentist. We offer routine check-ups to dental patients and in cases of tartar build-up, we have a range of treatment options suited towards effective removal of tartar and ensuring safety of the procedure.

When plaque and tartar is left unchecked, the teeth get enveloped in a continuous layer of yellow substance that gives an unclean look to our teeth and gums. Apart from being cosmetically displeasing, the plaque and tartar is also responsible for problems such as gum diseases and dental cavities in the affected region.

When getting the mouth checked up after a long time, dentists might suggest a debridement technique for cleaning of the teeth surface. This procedure involves the use of an ultrasound tool to remove the plaque and tartar from every corner of the mouth. Our dentists can provide you with an appropriate treatment plan, if you feel that you might need to undertake a debridement technique.

When periodontitis reaches an advanced stage, Dentists might suggest the use of the gingival flap surgery for the treatment. This is a procedure in which dentists separate the gums from the teeth and fold them back for a temporary amount of time in order to allow the dental surgeon to reach deep inside the root of the teeth and bone. The gingival flap surgery can be the best plan of action for treatment when the non-surgical procedure does not yield any results to treat the periodontitis.
