Scaling and Polishing

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning below the gumline used to treat gum disease

Periodontal Flap surgery

Periodontal pockets are areas below the gum line where gum tissues have detached from teeth, resulting in uncleansable space where bacteria can accumulate, this bacteria can cause inflammation of gums resulting in sensitivity, bleeding and pain. And it can leads to loss of supporting bone structure around the tooth and eventually lose of tooth. A flap line incision is made in the gum tissue, this allows us to remove the diseased tissue from the pocket and access the teeth root surface for thorough cleaning.

Dental bone Grafts

Our AKMC periodontist in Abu Dhabi uses bonegraft when there is severe bone loss, to replace the bone that is lost due to periodontal disease. After the scaling and polishing our periodontist will place bone graft material in to the place that have been eroded. It helps to regenerate the bone.
  • This helps to add volume and density to the jaw bone.
Bone grafts are used as a filler material to facilitate bone formation and promote the healing process. This bone graft acts as a mineral reservoir for bone formation Eg: Allograft, hydroxyapatite Bone graft is a surgical procedure replacing the missing bone with artificial bone. By adding bone graft we can improve the tooth mobility /shaky tooth

Guided Tissue Regeneration :

During this procedure, our periodontist places a special biocompatible membrane between existing bone and your tooth. This membrane keeps unwanted tissue from growing into the area, and encourages bone to grow back instead.

Usually the best periodontists use gum tissue regeneration in combination with a bone graft (GBR). This helps in repairing periodontal defects and further prevents soft tissue from growing in to these areas.

Gum graft:

Gum recession can be treated by gum grafting procedures. Periodontitis can cause your gum tissue to pull away from your teeth. This is gum recession, and it exposes your teeth roots, making the teeth appear longer. To replace lost gum tissue around your teeth, our specialist periodontist may recommend a gum graft. During this surgery, our periodontist will place a tissue graft around the affected teeth and suture it into place. Gum graft surgery covers exposed teeth roots, improves your smile, appearance and reduces your risk for further recession.

Bone graft for dental implant

A bone graft is an artificial bone powder, use to replace and regenerate bone volume to create a solid foundation for your new dental implant. If there is not enough bone, dental implant cannot attach the jaw and will leads to failure of implant

Gum disease is primarily caused by plaque—a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. Poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetic factors, and certain medical conditions can contribute to its development.

Common signs include red, swollen gums, bleeding during brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, and loose or shifting teeth. Regular dental check-ups can help diagnose gum disease in its early stages.

In its early stage, known as gingivitis, gum disease is reversible with proper oral hygiene practices and professional dental care. However, in advanced stages, it may not be completely reversible but can be managed effectively.

Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during and after a gingivectomy. Local anesthesia is used during the procedure to numb the area, and any post-operative discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

A frenectomy is commonly performed to address conditions such as tongue-tie (ankyloglossia), lip tie, or buccal ties. These conditions can impact speech, oral hygiene, and breastfeeding in infants.

Gum depigmentation is considered a safe procedure, but as with any cosmetic treatment, there are potential risks. These may include temporary sensitivity, changes in gum texture, or uneven pigmentation. These risks are minimized when the procedure is performed by a skilled professional.

Flap surgery is typically recommended when non-surgical treatments, such as scaling and root planing, are not sufficient to address advanced gum disease. It allows for more direct access to the roots of the teeth and the removal of deep-seated bacteria.

Recovery from flap surgery may involve mild discomfort and swelling for a few days. It's important to follow post-operative care instructions, including avoiding certain foods, practicing good oral hygiene, and attending follow-up appointments for optimal healing.
