Maybe it’s been a while since your last routine cleaning and your gums are really sore, perhaps you are bleeding while brushing, or may notice bad breath, and even you’ve noticed your teeth shifted or loose.
The build-up of dental plaque and calculus can affect surrounding and supporting structures of the teeth, compromising gum health, function, and esthetic. The treatment may vary depending on how advanced is the gum disease and goes from a regular cleaning, deep cleaning, or gum/bone surgery.
In Dental Project Mexico, we recommend having every six months a routine cleaning and teeth polishing; our specialist will determine the best option for you.
After a full mouth and x-ray examination, our specialist will evaluate if there need to go deeper than a regular cleaning; if that is the case after full local anesthesia, a combination of manual instruments and ultrasonic device gently will get rid of all the harmful bacteria responsible of the gum disease.
Bone and osseous surgery:
In some cases, the periodontal disease affects really deep all the supporting tissues of your teeth; in that case, bone surgery is needed to save most of your teeth; it may be combined with antibiotic treatment and bone graft procedures to reconstruct the damaged tissues.
The gummy smile can be treated with a very simple surgical procedure, it’s not invasive, and the recovery is fast, ask our specialist if you are a candidate for this treatment.
