Gingivitis and Periodontitis

Gum Treatment, The term “periodontal disease” or “gum disease” in its strictest sense refer to both gingivitis and periodontitis.

Gingivitis is an inflammatory condition of the gingiva. Gingivitis is modified by several factors such as smoking, certain drugs and hormonal changes that occur in puberty and pregnancy.

Periodontitis follows gingivitis and is also influenced by the individual’s immune and inflammatory response. It is initiated by microbial plaque. Periodontitis involves the destruction of the supporting structure of the teeth. Clearly, Periodontitis is the most significant of these diseases because it causes tooth loss, mouth odor or bad breath or halitosis.

Gums affected by periodontosis can be cured, with treatment ranging from simple scaling and curettage up to actual periodontal plastic surgery. The total duration of periodontal treatment varies for each individual.

Gingival recession and Gingival Graft

Gingival recession and Gingival Graft 

Gum recession is one of the gum problems that patients can frequently identify. When the recession is in the front of the mouth, it may be readily seen, especially if it is on the upper front teeth.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery is predictable in creating thick, tough gum tissue (called “attached gingiva”) which will prevent further recession, and in some cases will also cover the existing recession. An important point to understand is that these periodontal plastic surgical techniques have the treatment of recession as their primary treatment objective.

(Crown lengthening, esthetics, gingivectomy, gummy smile)

The appearance of the gingival tissues surrounding the teeth plays an important role in the aesthetics of the anterior maxillary region of the mouth.

Abnormalities in symmetry and contour can significantly affect the harmonious appearance of the natural or prosthetic dentition. As well nowadays, patients have a greater desire for more esthetic results which may influence treatment choice.

Esthetic periodontal surgery is sometimes performed to change the dimension of the front teeth and to optimize the esthetic outcome of treatment with new crown restorations or other esthetic dental care.

In some instances, a simple procedure can increase the length of the teeth to improve esthetics. Extensive dental work is often necessary to restore oral health.
