    Periodontal Treatment

    Periodontology is a branch of dentistry, which examines the structure of soft (periodontal ligament, gingiva) and hard tissues (bone, cementum) surrounding the teeth, the diseases that occur in these tissues and the treatment of these diseases.

Periodontal Treatment

  • Periodontology is a branch of dentistry, which examines the structure of soft (periodontal ligament, gingiva) and hard tissues (bone, cementum) surrounding the teeth, the diseases that occur in these tissues and the treatment of these diseases.
  • Teeth are not directly attached to the bone in which they are located, called the alveolar prominence. There is a tissue called the periodontal ligament, which is made up of fibers between the teeth and the bone.
  • The periodontal ligament allows the force on the teeth to be transmitted to the jawbone by softening it.
  • These structures are covered with gingiva.
  • These tissues around the tooth are called periodontal tissues and constitute the scope of periodontology.

 

What is periodontal curettage?

  • As periodontal disease progresses to deep tissues, it is the process of eliminating the bacteria, tissue residues and dental calculus in the "pocket" we mentioned above, and cleaning the inside of this pocket by scraping.

 

What is gingival disease?

  • It is an inflammatory disease that affects the gums and the tissues where the teeth are attached and supported.
  • It is noticed and easily treated by the dentist in the early period when periodic dentist controls are followed.
  • However, if it is delayed, it causes tooth loss to a large extent. In recent years, studies have shown that some systemic diseases also increase their severity.

 

What is flap operation?

  • In cases where periodontal disease progresses much deeper, the treatment options we mentioned before may be insufficient.
  • Through the flap operation, the gingival tissue is surgically removed, and the cleaning of the area is done by directly seeing it.
  • This surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia, painlessly.
  • Bacteria, inflammatory tissues, residues and tartar in the area are removed with the removed gingiva and it's closed with stitches.

 

Are stitches removed as a result of periodontal surgery?

  • As a result of periodontal surgical treatments, stitches are placed many times in order to provide faster and better healing in the operation area and these stitches are removed after 1 week.

 

Is follow-up examination required after periodontal treatments?

  • Periodontal treatments are very valuable treatments for oral and dental health.
  • For this reason, you should definitely go for a follow-up examination at intervals that your dentist deems appropriate.
  • Otherwise, your old gum diseases may recur without you noticing and may progress insidiously without you realizing it.

 

Gummy Smile Treatment

You have many options for Gummy Smile treatment at DentEuropa clinic. These are as follows:

 

1) Gum Reshaping

  • Gum reshaping techniques are frequently used to correct the gingival level.
  • The treatment method is related to the level of the excess gum.

 

2) Botox Application

  • In the case of Gummy Smile from muscles, botulinum toxin is applied in cases where the gingiva appears too much due to excessive lifting of the lip caused by excessive muscle movements or facial expressions.

 

3) Orthodontics (Dental Brace)

  • This method is more effective especially in young patients and will eliminate possible gum problems that may occur in the future.
  • These treatments are well-known as crown lengthening procedures and provide a beautiful smile that reveals your teeth by reducing the amount of gum that appears when you smile.
