Are there Periodontal Clinics?Xavier Romeu2021-04-27T06:53:20+00:00
This is a procedure used by the dentist to access gum infection that is not accessible from the outside. It consists of carefully opening the gum on the outside and the inside, in order to reach the bone and be able to scrape and remove the deep infection. Stitches will always have to be placed to close the gum properly. Surgery is a very effective procedure to eliminate pockets of infection and make it easier to monitor gum health over time and ensure stronger teeth.
My gums have receded and the root is showing. Is there anything I can do?Xavier Romeu2021-04-27T06:54:22+00:00
Yes, in these situations we do gum grafts, using the patient's own gum, which we move from one place to another, in order to cover the root and obtain a good aesthetic effect and improve the appearance of the gum.
Is it normal to have bleeding gums?Xavier Romeu2021-04-27T06:45:13+00:00
Healthy gums should not bleed. When we notice bleeding when we eat, for example, an apple, or when we brush our teeth, it means that the gums are inflamed and that you should see your dentist as soon as possible. Only the best medical professionals will be able to solve or apply the appropriate dental treatments for each case and improve the patient's dental health.
Gum inflammation is always related to an excess of bacteria in the mouth. Either because personal cleanliness is not good enough, or because we do not visit the dentist often enough for a professional cleaning.
Why are my teeth moving?Xavier Romeu2021-04-27T06:50:56+00:00
The dentist will make an examination and diagnosis of the situation, to establish the cause of the problem and what to do to cure it. In general, the treatment consists of removing tartar and dental plaque by applying ultrasonic tooth cleaning, if the problem is minor, or one or more dental scaling to remove the hidden tartar that is under the gum and is the most dangerous. If scaling does not solve the problem, your dentist may recommend periodontal surgery to access deeper areas of certain teeth that are not accessible from the outside.
