Periodontics Dental Services

Gum disease - periodontics

At Zealous Dental in Dayton, Ohio, we provide comprehensive periodontal services to help our patients achieve healthy gums and teeth. Our team uses the latest techniques and technologies to diagnose and treat a wide range of gum and periodontal diseases. Here are some of the periodontal procedures we offer:

  1. Scaling and root planing: This deep cleaning procedure is used to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and below the gum line. Scaling and root planing can help prevent and treat gum disease.

  2. Gum grafts: Gum grafts are used to restore receding gums by taking tissue from one area of the mouth and grafting it onto the affected area. This can help improve the appearance of the gums and prevent further gum recession.

  3. Crown lengthening: Crown lengthening is a procedure that is used to remove excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth's surface. This can be done for cosmetic purposes or to prepare a tooth for a restoration.

  4. Dental implants: Dental implants are a popular treatment option for patients who have lost one or more teeth. Implants are placed into the jawbone and provide a strong, stable foundation for a replacement tooth or teeth.

  5. Bone grafts: Bone grafts are used to replace missing bone tissue in the jaw and create a stable foundation for dental implants. Bone grafts can also be used to treat periodontal disease and other conditions that cause bone loss.

  6. Periodontal surgery: In some cases, periodontal surgery may be necessary to treat advanced gum disease and other periodontal conditions.

At Zealous Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with high-quality periodontal care in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Our periodontists work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their unique needs and goals.

Common Questions About Periodontics

What is "periodontics"?

Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the gums and other structures that support the teeth. Periodontists are dental specialists who receive additional training and education in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as the placement of dental implants and other related procedures. The goal of periodontics is to maintain the health and function of the teeth and surrounding structures and to prevent and treat periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss and other serious health complications.

What are typical procedures associated with periodontics?

There are several typical procedures associated with periodontics, including scaling and root planing, which is a deep cleaning procedure used to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and below the gum line. Gum grafts are also a common procedure in periodontics, which are used to restore receding gums by taking tissue from one area of the mouth and grafting it onto the affected area. Crown lengthening, dental implants, bone grafts, and periodontal surgery are other procedures associated with periodontics that are used to treat gum disease, replace missing teeth, and restore the health of the gums and surrounding structures. The specific treatment plan for each patient will depend on their individual needs and the severity of their condition.
