Periodontology (Gingival Diseases And Treatments)

Periodontology is the study of the hard and soft tissues that surround the teeth. Periodontal disorders are caused by poor oral hygiene, certain systemic disorders, incompatible prosthetics, and trauma. The following are the most common periodontal disease symptoms;

  • Bleeding gums
  • Halitosis
  • Red gums 
  • Mobiling teeth
  • Spacing between teeth

A dentist should be consulted in these situations. Tooth loss is caused by periodontal disorders. Due to periodontal reasons for tooth loss, such as bone loss or implant, the treatment of the prosthesis fabrication will be considerably more challenging.

Gingivectomy – Gingivoplasty

Gingival surgery is performed if there are anomalies in the gum level and there is volume increase in the gums. This operation can be performed using either a laser or a traditional surgical approach. The patient can resume his social life immediately following the surgery. Your gums will heal entirely in about a week.
