Block Grafts

Block grafts are a common periodontal surgery used to address severe bone loss in the jaw, typically caused by gum disease or tooth extractions. During the procedure, a small block of bone, often sourced from the patient or a donor, is transplanted into the affected area. This new bone integrates with the existing one, promoting bone regeneration and creating a stable foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments. Block grafts are ideal for patients seeking long-term solutions to improve their jawbone structure and support overall oral health.

Reasons For Block Grafts:

  • Severe bone loss in the jaw
  • Gum disease leading to compromised bone structure
  • Insufficient bone volume for dental implants
  • Support for restorative treatments and improved oral function

Connective Tissue Grafting

Connective tissue grafting is a periodontal procedure aimed at treating gum recession and enhancing gum health. During the surgery, a small piece of tissue is taken from the roof of the patient’s mouth and grafted onto the affected gum area. This graft promotes tissue regeneration, covers exposed tooth roots, and prevents further recession. Connective tissue grafting is beneficial for patients experiencing gum recession, tooth sensitivity, or seeking to improve the aesthetics of their smile.

Reasons for Connective Tissue Grafting:

  • Gum recession
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Aesthetic enhancement of the smile

Guided Bone Regeneration

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is a specialized procedure that facilitates the growth of new bone in areas with insufficient bone volume, often required for dental implants. During the surgery, a biocompatible membrane is placed over the deficient area, preventing unwanted soft tissue growth while allowing bone cells to regenerate. This technique aids in the formation of a sturdy foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments. GBR is recommended for patients with bone loss, enabling them to achieve optimal oral function and aesthetics.

Reasons for Guided Bone Regeneration:

  • Insufficient bone volume for dental implants
  • Bone loss due to tooth extraction
  • Promote bone regeneration
  • Create a stable foundation for restorative treatments

Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is an advanced periodontal procedure to restore damaged or lost gum tissue around teeth. Through GTR, a barrier membrane is placed between the gum tissue and the tooth root, preventing unwanted tissues from invading the healing site. This allows specific cells to regenerate, promoting the growth of new, healthy gum tissue. GTR is ideal for patients with gum recession, periodontal disease, or those seeking to improve the stability and aesthetics of their smile.

Reasons for Guided Tissue Regeneration:

  • Gum recession
  • Periodontal disease
  • Regeneration of healthy gum tissue
  • Improve the aesthetics of the smile

Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation is a specialized periodontal procedure designed to restore and enhance the shape and size of the jawbone ridge. When a tooth is lost or extracted, the surrounding bone can deteriorate, resulting in an uneven ridge. During ridge augmentation, bone grafts or synthetic materials are placed along the ridge, stimulating new bone growth and creating a more stable foundation for dental implants. This procedure is recommended for patients who require sufficient bone support for implants or seek aesthetic improvements to their jawline.

Reasons for Ridge Augmentation:

  • Rebuild and reshape jawbone contours
  • Preserve jawbone after tooth loss or extraction
  • Create a stable foundation for dental implants
  • Improve jawline aesthetics

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is a non-surgical periodontal procedure to treat gum disease. During the treatment, dental professionals carefully remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from above and below the gumline (scaling). They smooth out the tooth roots (root planing) to eliminate rough surfaces where bacteria can thrive. This helps gums reattach to the teeth and reduces inflammation. Scaling and root planing are for patients with early to moderate stages of gum disease, promoting improved gum health and preventing further progression.

Reasons for Scaling & Root Planing:

  • Treat gum disease
  • Remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria
  • Clean above and below the gumline
  • Smooth out tooth roots
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve gum health
  • Prevent gum disease progression
