FMS - an everlasting commitment to a healthy smile.
Your teeth are at risk because of periodontal disease. It began with the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth, which may have resulted from insufficient brushing and flossing. Over time, the plaque and tartar have caused loss of the supporting tissue around some of your teeth.
When plaque builds up on a tooth, bacteria in the plaque attack the bone around the tooth as well as the fibers, which connect the tooth to the bone. As the fibers and bone are destroyed, a pocket or space forms between the gum and the tooth- an ideal site for more plaque to build up. Without proper hygiene, the process may continue, sometimes without symptoms, until the tooth is endangered.
This surgical procedure is used by the periodontist to smooth / correct defects and irregularities in the bone surrounding the diseased teeth with the ultimate goal of eliminating periodontal pockets
Do not let the word “Surgery” scare you except in complex cases.
Gum pocket and defect before surgery.
Gum is retracted for access to the bone and root.
Bone defects are removed.
Gum tissue is sutured back around the tooth.
After healing, the gum is tightly “seald” around the tooth.
Post Procedure Instructions
Periodontal surgery has evolved with newer techniques and materials advancing the art and science of dentistry.
REGENERATION is a present concept where the tissues that are lost due to periodontal disease are reconstructed to a certain extent using newer and advanced techniques.
Various methods of regeneration used at FMS are:
As you have learned, you may be prone to periodontal diseases that require constant and careful attention. Like other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma, there is no permanent cure. Periodontal surgery helps control disease and prevents further destruction to the gums and bone, thereby minimizing tooth loss. Regular check-ups would ensure tooth loss is further minimized.
The cost of the periodontal treatment will vary depending upon your needs. After the periodontist has examined you and determined the appropriate treatment, he or she can provide you with an estimate of the cost. As you consider this a health investment, keep in mind that treating gum disease is less costly – and better for your health – than replacing teeth lost to untreated gum disease.
