Periodontitis Treatments in Dubai Image
Periodontitis is an advanced gum disease that affects many people. Tooth loss is frequently the unlucky consequence when left untreated, but today, our dentists in Dubai offer proper treatments available for progressive periodontal disease.

Gingivitis transformed into periodontitis

Gum disease is a tricky, advanced infection and the first stage, called gingivitis, happens when microbial plaque is not carefully removed from the teeth. Bleeding, swollen and red gums are the important signs of this kind of infection. If left untreated, gingivitis can develop into a more severe disorder called periodontitis

The toxins from this accumulation of bacterial plaque not only affect the gum soft tissue, but also the bone and tendons that support the teeth.

Non-surgical periodontitis treatment

Our dentists in Dubai will recommend, first of all, a non-surgical treatment, if the case requires it, and the first step in treating periodontitis is a conventional, non-surgical therapy called scaling and root planing (SRP).

The dentist in Dubai provides this treatment by scraping and eliminating the plaque and tartar off of the teeth and root exteriors by scaling and then levelling any bumpiness on the roots to stop bacteria from collecting over again. After this procedure, the gums will patch up and reattach to the healthy, clean exteriors of the teeth. In only a few weeks, the dentist will evaluate the healing process and decide if further treatment is required.

Pocket reduction procedure

After scaling and root planing, if the gum soft tissue is not fitting closely around the tooth and you can't keep the deep pocket area hygienic, you may be a patient that needs a periodontal pocket reduction or even flap surgery

By folding back the gum tissue, the dentists in Dubai will eliminate infectious bacteria and smooth areas of injured bone, letting the gum tissue to reattach to the healthy bone.

Gum grafts

Unprotected roots due to gum stagnation can be enclosed with gum implants, wherein gum soft tissue is taken from your palate or from another source and used to seal-off the roots of one or even more teeth. Covering unprotected roots helps diminish sensitivity and protects your roots from deterioration, while stopping further bone loss and gum recession.

Periodontal preservation

The dentists in Dubai will always remind to their patients with periodontitis the importance of a proper oral care and also to understand and apply correct brushing and flossing methods at home. In addition to not smoking, which constrains the healing progression, your dentist in Dubai will also recommend regular check-ups and cleaning schedules.
