Periodontal diseases are infections of the structures around the teeth, most commonly the gums. If not treated, the infection can spread and eventually lead to significant bone loss and tooth loss. Sai Dental Care supports your oral health even in advanced stages of periodontal disease.
Sai Dental Care provides a wide range of periodontal services, including scaling and root planing and dental crown lengthening. The dentists of Sai Dental Care tap into the latest and most advanced technology to serve our patients better. We pride ourselves on spending the time with all of our patients to understand their oral health and offer the best course of treatment.
Our specialization in the area of periodontics includes:
- Scaling and Root Planing - Scaling involves removing plaque and tartar that is beneath the gum line. A local anesthetic will usually be given to reduce any discomfort. Using an instrument or an ultrasonic cleaner, we will carefully remove plaque and tartar down to the bottom of each periodontal pocket. This procedure is followed by planing which involves smoothing the root surfaces making it more difficult for plaque to accumulate along the root surfaces in the future.
- Dental Crown Lengthening - Dental Crown Lengthening is a common surgical procedure that involves removing gum tissue and/or bone to expose more of a tooth. This can be done for cosmetic reasons to make teeth appear longer or the gum line more even, or it can be used when a tooth needs to be repaired, but not enough of it is above the gum.
Gum disease can not only damage your teeth, leaving your smile looking damaged and not functioning properly, but it can also lead to other serious health conditions.
