Specialist Periodontist Treatments Glasgow
Are you looking for a Specialist Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specialises in the maintenance of your gums and the bone structures supporting your teeth. Periodontists have a specialist understanding of the science of your mouth, teeth, jaw and gums as a whole, as well as a thorough knowledge of the different kinds of diseases that can manifest, their symptoms and suitable treatments. The Berkeley Clinic is dedicated to providing periodontal solutions that not only improve your smile but your overall oral hygiene.
Specialist Periodontist in Glasgow
Here at The Berkeley Clinic, we are delighted to have a Specialist Periodontist and Implantologist Dr Maria Trianti treat the gum problems requiring specialist training. Maria is an expert in diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and is committed to helping patients achieve a healthy smile. She provides specialised surgical and non-surgical treatment options using the most advanced techniques to improve the health of the gums and aesthetics around teeth and dental implants.
Surgical Treatments for Gum Disease
Gum disease is serious and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Our periodontal treatments are designed to save your teeth and provide you with the dental care to correct and maintain overall gum and oral health. In addition, gum disease has been linked to other serious health conditions, such as heart disease, so it is very important you seek treatment as soon as possible.
Only when non-surgical treatment has not fully alleviated the condition will surgical options be explored. The treatment method depends on the progression of the disease and your overall oral health.
Treatments for Gum Disease
Pocket Reduction Procedure
This procedure involves your periodontist making tiny incisions in your gum line so that a section of your gum tissue can be folded back, exposing the roots for more effective scaling and root planing. This enables your periodontist to remove infectious bacteria, plaque and tartar, and smooth areas of damaged bone, reducing oral inflammation.
Exposed tooth roots due to gum recession can be covered with gum grafts. During this procedure, your periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate or another source to cover the exposed roots of one or more teeth. This will fix the defect and help prevent further recession and bone loss.
Bone regeneration is the process of re-growing the bone around your teeth. Bone grafting is used to recreate bone and soft supporting tissues lost due to gum disease. Using the most advanced technology and specialised surgical techniques, we can regrow your bone and prolong the life of your teeth.
Dental Crown Lengthening
This procedure is where the periodontist removes gum tissue, bone or both to expose more of a tooth to improve the health of the gum tissue or prepare the mouth for restorative or cosmetic procedures. Crown lengthening is often also used to correct what’s commonly referred to as a ‘gummy smile’, where people have a lot of gum tissue around their upper teeth.
Root Amputation Procedure
This is the surgical removal of a tooth’s root from a multi-root tooth. It is a periodontal technique used to maintain the healthy portion of a molar that has a diseased or damaged root.
The tooth is then stabilised and rendered fully functional with a crown or filling. The teeth suitable for root amputation must have a healthy surface with existing strength in the bone support with healthy surrounding gums. Otherwise, the root amputation will be ineffective.
