What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis is the inflammation of tissues surrounding the teeth which results in the shrinkage of the gums, and the loss of bone support. The main cause of this gum disease is the lack of oral hygiene continued over a period. For further details, please do not hesitate to contact Lakeshore Dentistry today.

Most common problems associated with gum disease:

  • Discolored or deteriorating tooth structure.
  • Holes in between the teeth in the gum tissue.
  • Inflammation of the gum tissue
  • Tooth loss

Types of Periodontal Surgery:

Periodontal Gum Treatment Mississauga

There are two types of periodontal surgery treatments: surgical and non-surgical treatments.

Surgical periodontal treatments:

  • Soft tissue grafts: At times, periodontitis causes the loss of gum tissue which results in the gum line receding. In cases like this, we will reinforce the damaged soft tissue by extracting a small amount of the tissue from the roof of the mouth and bind it to the affected site.
  • Pocket reduction surgery: This surgical procedure involves making minute cuts in your gum to allow a part of the tissue to be lifted back.
  • Soft tissue grafts: At times, periodontitis causes the loss of gum tissue which results in the gum line receding. In cases like this, we will reinforce the damaged soft tissue by extracting a small amount of the tissue from the roof of the mouth and bind it to the affected site.
  • Pocket reduction surgery: This surgical procedure involves making minute cuts in your gum to allow a part of the tissue to be lifted back.
  • Bone grafting: In very severe cases of periodontitis, the bone surrounding your tooth may be damaged. We may need to take small pieces of your own bone for hard tissue grafting to hold the affected tooth in place to prevent tooth loss.

Non-surgical periodontal treatments:

If your gum disease is not advanced, we can use non-surgical procedures such as:

  • Scaling: This involves the use of an ultrasonic device to remove bacteria and tartar from your tooth enamel, as well as beneath the gums.
  • Root planning: This is an important procedure to smoothen root surfaces.
  • Administer antibiotics: Administer antibiotics: Depending on your condition, we may suggest that you use certain oral or topical antibiotics to get rid of infection-causing bacteria.

  • If you suffer from a bad bite.

Improve your smile with our orthodontic treatments:

From traditional braces to retainers and Invisalign aligners, we can help you chose from a variety of options to suit your needs.

  • Traditional braces: Consists of metal brackets being placed on your teeth with an adhesive and is connected by a wire. Braces require periodic tightening, so the pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw over time.
  • Invisalign: Custom-made clear aligners made with the use of state-of-the-art 3D computer imaging technology that gradually shifts your teeth. Unlike braces where you would visit the dentist on a regular basis, we will provide you with a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home every couple of weeks.
