Improving Gum Health
Gum disease is a chronic oral infection that slowly destroys your gum tissue and bone. Caused by the bacteria that live in your mouth, periodontal disease is an active infection that can raise your likelihood of developing other inflammatory diseases.
Scaling and root planing, a form of deep cleaning, is one treatment for gum disease. Scaling and root planing treatment is most effective in the early stages of gum disease and can help to reduce periodontal pocket depths up to two or three millimeters on average.
Laser gum surgery can successfully treat even severe infections and has been shown to regenerate bone, helping to correct some of the damage incurred as a result of gum disease. Dr. Ranchod utilizes the Beamer STL Diode Laser for state-of-the-art treatment.
Periodontal maintenance is a procedure that keeps bacteria at bay to help prevent recurrence of this oral infection. Performed at regular intervals of three to four months, these visits allow us to clean beneath the gum line, effectively maintaining areas you are unable to reach.
Protecting Bone Health
Gum disease can result in the loss of bone and can be a contributing factor to the need for tooth extractions. When a tooth has been extracted, the edges of the socket can shrink, changing bone volume levels as well as the shape of your gum line.
Bone augmentation is a method of adding bone to a site where density has been lost and is commonly performed to prepare for dental implant surgery.
Ridge preservation allows Dr. Ranchod to take preemptive action against bone resorption. Knowing that bone loss will occur after extraction, bone grafting material can be added to the empty socket in an effort to preserve the contour and health of your bone.
Ridge augmentation restores the contour of the ridge after bone loss has occurred and can be performed for both bone and the soft tissue of the gums.
