Scaling and Root Planing

Teeth scaling, is also medically known as conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy, or deep cleaning. Teeth scaling is a procedure involving the removal of dental plaque and calculus (also known as tartar) from the teeth via oral cleaning.  It is a part of non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Once your dentist is done with scaling he will then begin root planing. Root planing includes smoothing out your teeth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth. At Dr. Pandit’s Clinic for dental excellence scaling and root planing may take more than one visit to complete and may require a local anesthetic.

Gingivoplasty

Surgical reshaping of gum tissue around the teeth is called Gingivoplasty. The primary reson behind gingivoplasty is to make gums more attractive and give them better look. Many a time gums are not formed normally or do have an unusual shape because of genetic disorder, disease or trauma. It often is done alone but can be done during or after a gingivectomy.

Gingivectomy

The surgical removal procedure of gum tissue (gingiva) is called Gingivectomy. When gums are separated or pulled away from teeth to make deep pockets gingivectomy is done. The deep pockets make it harder to clean away plaque and calculas. Gingivectomy is done to prevent gum disease from damaging the bone supporting the teeth. The procedure of Gingivectomy involves adjusting loose gums and reshaping gum tissue to close the pocket between teeth and gum.

Flap Surgery

A flap surgery procedure includes the cleaning of the roots of a tooth and repairs bone damage caused by gum disease. A gum specialist (periodontist)  or an oral surgeon at Dr. Pandit’s Clinic for Dental Excellency often performs the procedure.

Before the flap surgery, you will be given a local anesthetic by our periodontist to numb the area where they will work on your gums.

The periodontist or oral surgeon will pull back a section of your gums to clean the roots of your teeth and repair damaged bone if needed. The gum flap will be sewn back into place once the procedure is done and covered with gauze to stop the bleeding.

Crown lengthening procedure

A crown lengthening procedure is done to expose more of the natural tooth. To expose more of natural tooth excess gum tissue and bone is reshaped and adjusted. One single tooth to even a full gum line can be reshaped according to the patient’s requirement. Dental crown lengthening helps in spreading a broad and natural smile.

Gingival/Periodontal curratage

Gingival curettage is considered a surgical procedure. Gingival curettage is a procedure removing the gingival crevicular epithelium and is of no additional benefit than scaling and root planing alone. It uses a curette (surgical instrument) to, form a periodontal pocket, removes soft tissue lining. After that, all that is left behind is a healthy connective gingival tissue lining.

Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are the most common symptom of gum disease. But it can also point to other health problems. Occasional bleeding of the gums can be caused by brushing your teeth too vigorously or wearing dentures that don’t fit correctly. Frequent gum bleeding can also indicate more serious conditions, including:

  • periodontitis (an advanced form of gum disease)
  • leukemia (cancer of the blood)
  • vitamin deficiency
