Gingivitis and periodontitis are the main gum diseases that can arise due to bad oral hygiene or different health conditions. It is recommended to schedule some dental visits and to prevent in time the possible gum diseases which eventually will lead to tooth loss. Our dentists in Dubai are ready to provide you with info and recommendations about the available dental treatments for gum diseases. There are patients who come to the dentist when there is nothing left to do with a damaged tooth. The doctor will recommend dental implants in Dubai, one of the most innovative and durable methods to replace the missing teeth.
Root canal treatment to treat periodontitis
The first stage of the gum disease is called gingivitis, which is developed by the bacteria in the mouth. The dental plaque also develops on the teeth, especially at the roots, leading to bleeding gums every time the teeth are brushed and flossed. If not treated in time with non-surgical and non-painful treatments, the gingivitis will turn into periodontitis. In this stage, the bacteria will attach the ligaments and the bones, making the teeth lose the strength and start to move.
A root canal treatment will be suggested by the Dubai dentist for all patients that come with this severe stage of gum disease. With this important dental procedure, the dentist will remove the tartar and plaque from the teeth, smoothing the area at the end of the treatment. According to the gravity of the periodontitis of a patient, the dentist will communicate if other dental appointments are necessary.
Bone grafting to treat gum diseases
Also called regenerative procedure, the bone grafting implies a surgical intervention where a synthetic or natural bone will be placed in the affected area by the periodontitis. The dental procedure will not be closed until the doctor introduces the tissue-stimulating proteins for a fast osseointegration or fusion. This type of treatment will prevent further gum recession and gum disease development, obviously, with correct techniques of brushing and flossing the teeth.
The pocket reduction method
A root canal treatment may let the gum tissue not that fit on the teeth, a situation where the dentist will reduce them, in order to cover the base of the teeth. This intervention is called pocket reduction procedure and it is necessary to avoid the bacteria to develop on the teeth, between the teeth, and on the roots, due to gum recession.
