Problems and Treatments
In the first session, a periodontal study will be performed. Thus, the state of the teeth and the involvement of the periodontium are checked to plan the best treatment. We will perform a radiographic series to see the bone behind the gum and a periodontogram with the help of the Florida probe.
Through the computer we will show you the exact measurements and some graphs so that you fully understand your case, and what your treatment will consist of.
Swollen gums are enlarged, prominent, or abnormally protruding gums. The treatment to cure it is called Scaling and Root Planing (RAR).
A gum cleaning is performed to remove calculus and tartar that is located under the gum attached to the root of the tooth. To do this, an electron microscope and specific instruments will be used, painlessly, with the aim of eliminating infection, bleeding and inflammation to achieve the best periodontal state.
Once these diseases have been eliminated, periodic maintenance must be carried out to ensure the success of the treatment.
Gingival Plastic Surgery
When the gum is receding it is called gingival recession. In these cases the gum is removed and the tooth
it looks longer than normal.
This occurs due to periodontal disease, dental malpositions or very rough brushing. It also affects the aesthetics of the gums, and can cause dental sensitivity to cold or heat and discomfort in the gums.
The solution to this problem is to perform plastic microsurgery and gingival grafting.
Gingivectomy consists of a surgical intervention in which the gum is trimmed.
On certain occasions there is excess gum that covers and covers part of the tooth, making it appear smaller. This is not only for aesthetic purposes, but also for oral health. For the smile to be harmonious, it must be in
proportion the amount of tooth that is taught with the amount of gum. In these cases, the specialist removes the excess gum that covers the tooth, giving it a proportional shape.
In the clinical case on the right you can see how this process has taken place.
Crown lengthening is a procedure to reshape the contour of the gum tissues and, in most cases, of the bone underlying.
It can be done around one or more teeth so that the tooth is correctly exposed.
The technique is simple and painless, as we use the latest technology such as the biolaser or the electrosurgical unit.
Stains on the gums
The stains or pigmentations in the gum affect aesthetically if they appear in the most anterior zone and are seen when smiling. They are usually like moles and do not usually give any pathology.
The treatment to remove stains on the gums consists of performing a biolaser or gently exfoliating the gums. It is an easy technique, in most cases it is performed without anesthesia as it is painless.
