a close up of healthy gums and pearly teethIt takes gifted hands and well-trained dentists to perform plastic procedures. Restoring your facial and oral aesthetics sounds like a tough job. The dentists in charge of your oral health, periodontists, have skill and precise knowledge when it comes to performing different procedures. There are various procedures that are performed on a patient's face or mouth to restore the normal functioning. Some examples of these procedures are listed below.

Root coverage

In cases where the root of your teeth is exposed, you will need to see a periodontist to perform root coverage surgery. The root coverage procedure is used to develop gum tissue where needed. The gum tissue used to cover the root is extracted from a patient's palate. Root covering prevents your teeth from decay. Also, the reduction of tooth sensitivity comes in handy improving your smile.

Pocket Depth Reduction

Periodontic diseases may cause the formation of pocket-like structures on your gums. Pocket depth reduction is done to reduce and prevent the harm that is caused by plaque collected. This procedure secures the gum tissue in its original shape giving you back your smile. it is important to undergo this surgery to help maintain a healthy smile.

Combination procedures

Now just as in prosthodontics, you may opt to combine these procedures to help restore the normal functioning of your gums in periodontics. It is often used to lay a foundation for prosthodontic procedures like dental implants and the placement of veneers. Full gum reconstruction may yield you back a fresh and healthy smile, comfort, and confidence. When visiting a periodontist, you will undergo tests that will help you evaluate if you need the surgery, therefore you do not have to be worried about making a wrong decision. For this and more information about periodontic procedures you may call us any time, but for clear and specific one-on-one examination, please visit our dentists and get advice about oral issues.
