As plaque and bacteria build up underneath the gum line brushing and flossing become less and less effective in cleaning. Scaling and root planing, also known as periodontal therapy, is the technical process of removing hard to reach plaque and similar material from underneath the gum. Failure to do so will cause gum disease and bone damage.
A dentist’s examination and diagnosis is the first step. After an examination confirms a serious presence of plaque under the gum line, the dentist or periodontal specialist will perform a systematic deep cleaning of each tooth area, removing any reachable plaque and bacteria. The process is more thorough than a regular cleaning, so a local pain reliever may be used if a patient has every sensitive gum. Once finished, a patient will be likely advised to use an over-the-counter pain reliever for discomfort the first day or so. The cleaning is then maintained by regular brushing and flossing by the patient at home.

What are the Peri-Implant Diseases?
Peri-implant diseases cause inflammation that affects the hard and soft tissues surrounding dental implants. Just like a natural tooth, dental implants are susceptible to bacteria. The bacteria accumulate beneath the gum line on the base of the dental implant. As time passes, the gum tissue becomes irritated, which leads to the inflammation. If not addressed early on, the tissue becomes damaged, and the bone structure below the dental implant begins deteriorating.
的re are two types of peri-implant diseases, peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis. Peri-implant mucositis is characterized by inflammation around the implant’s soft tissues with no indication of a bone loss. If caught in its early stages, peri-implant mucositis is treatable and can be reversed; however, if left untreated, peri-implantitis will result. Peri-implantitis is characterized by inflammation around the implant’s soft tissues as well as bone deterioration. This condition requires surgical intervention.
Symptoms of Peri-Implant Diseases——就像periodontal disease, the peri-implant disease causes tender or red gingiva around the dental implants, and bleeding gums when brushing/flossing.
What is a Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation (CPE)?
的American Academy of Periodontology recommends that individuals receive a yearly Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation.
During a CPE, a dental professional examines the patients:
- bone structure;
- plaque buildup; and
Also, he or she will want to discuss any risk factors the patient has for gum disease. Once this evaluation is complete, the dental professional will have the information necessary to determine the patient’s periodontal health.
What Periodontal Treatments and Procedures do Periodontists Perform?
Periodontists specialize intreating gum diseaseand replacing missing teeth using dental implants.

Gum Graft Surgery

的se procedures are used to regenerate bone and tissue that has been lost due to periodontal disease.
An artificial tooth root is placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

Periodontal Pocket Reduction
If an individual has advanced gum disease and his or her periodontal pockets are too deep to address with daily oral hygiene, a periodontal pocket reduction may be necessary.
