What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as the placement of  implants. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and bones supporting the teeth. It is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults in developed countries.

Why Consider Periodontal Treatment?

At Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, we offer a range of periodontal treatments to address various conditions. Some of the reasons why you may require periodontal treatment include:

  • Moderate/Advanced Gum Disease
    This occurs when the gums are bleeding, swollen, or red around most teeth, and the jawbone has started to recede.
  • Localized Gum Recession
    Gum recession may be caused by over-brushing with a hard bristle brush or by a tooth that is not correctly positioned. Immediate treatment is required to prevent further spreading.
  • Before Crown Lengthening
    The periodontist may lengthen the crown of the tooth by removing surrounding soft tissue to provide more tooth exposure.
  • Ridge Augmentation
    This procedure, often called “recontouring,” may be required to correct an uneven gum line. Before embarking on treatment, a periodontist needs to treat any bacterial infections and periodontitis.

A proactive approach to periodontal care

By addressing gum disease early on, you can prevent the progression of the disease and reduce your risk of tooth loss. Our periodontal treatments are tailored to your individual needs, whether you have mild, moderate, or advanced periodontal disease.

The improved overall quality of life

Untreated periodontal disease has been linked to systemic health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By addressing periodontal disease early on, you can reduce your risk of developing these and other health problems.

Periodontal Treatment at Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics

When it comes to mild to moderate periodontal problems, our periodontists focus on curing the underlying bacterial infection and then providing advice on the most suitable home cleaning methods. In some cases, deep scaling may be necessary to remove bacterial plaque and calculus (tartar) from the teeth and tissues.

For advanced periodontal disease where the jawbone has significantly regressed, more intensive cleaning may be recommended, and loose teeth that cannot be saved will be removed. At Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, we incorporate the latest technology and techniques to ensure that your periodontal treatment is not only effective but also minimally invasive.
