What Is Periodontics?
Periodontics is the treatment and care of supporting structure of teeth like the gum and jaw bone. Periodontal disease (or gum disease) usually can progress without us knowing. It starts when plaque builds up on tooth surfaces and is not removed properly and timely. This plaque is full of bacteria and causes gum inflammation. Patients may seek the help of a periodontist for gingivitis, which is a condition that affects the gums due to bacteria build up. Left untreated, it can lead to the destruction of the alveolar bone that supports teeth. Gingivitis is the number one cause to date of tooth loss in adults, so treatment is vital to the overall health of the patient.
Periodontists also focus on the implantation and maintenance of dental implants. Dental implants are permanent tooth-like structures that are surgically implanted in a patient’s mouth to replace a missing tooth or fill a gap. Dental implants are an excellent option for patients that have lost a tooth and want a permanent solution that requires little maintenance. Dental implants blend with natural teeth and are not noticeable. They fuse with the natural jaw bone and never move, squeak, or slip like other appliances.
The pinhole surgical technique, or pinhole procedure, is an alternative to soft tissue grafting when dealing with advanced gum recession. This technique allows Dr. Nguyen to restore gum health with less discomfort, bleeding, and pain that would be possible with traditional grafting procedures. The name is derived from the surgical method, in which the gum tissue is moved using only a small pinhole, rather than a large incision.
If you’re interested in the pinhole procedure, call us to schedule an appointment and we’ll be happy to answer any further questions you may have about the technique.
