SURGICAL PERIODONTAL TREATMENTS

SURGICAL PERIODONTAL TREATMENTS

Dr. Alireza Khansari MSD only recommends surgery when necessary. If initial steps aren’t successful, we may recommend surgery to help get your teeth and gums back to health.

It’s important to realize gum disease doesn’t just affect your teeth and gums. It can release bacteria into your bloodstream that can negatively impact other parts of your body. That’s why we are committed to offering services that will prevent this from happening.

The main types of surgeries we provide are:

  • Pocket reduction procedures
  • Regenerative Procedures

POCKET REDUCTION PORCEDURES

Sometimes, bacteria, plaque, tartar and/or infection get very deep, too deep to take care without a minor procedure. If routine scaling and root planing of deep periodontal pockets can’t be cleaned as normal, Dr. Alireza Khansari MSD may suggest pocket reduction procedures.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A POCKET PROCEDURE?

During a pocket reduction procedure, a periodontist folds back the gum tissue in order to get access to the plaque, tartar and bacteria that’s hard to reach and may be causing the disease. If needed, damaged bone will be smoothed. Why? It makes it much easier for gum tissue to reattach to a nice, healthy bone. Once it’s reattached, the gum tissue is secured to that healthy bone with sutures.

WHY IS A POCKET REDUCTION PROCEDURE NEEDED?

Bacteria, plaque and tartar can gather in deep places and start causing periodontal disease in your gums, teeth and surrounding areas. This is a serious disease that starts as gingivitis and progresses to something more serious. This disease may be prevented before it starts by having pocket reduction procedure, which cleans the disease-causing plaque, tartar, etc. Plus, it can help you maintain a healthy smile and your natural teeth.

WHAT ARE REGENERATIVE PROCEDURE?

Our team at Poway Perio offers regenerative procedures, also known as bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration.

If there’s a defect in a bone, there’s a simple way we can try and fix it: a bone graft stimulates the formation of new bone. By combining both natural and synthetic bone material, we can create this bone regeneration. To prevent gum tissue from getting between the tooth and bone, we sometimes use special membranes to ensure a more successful regeneration of bone and periodontal ligament.

As this is probably a fairly unfamiliar procedure to most people, we are happy to answer all questions and walk you through the process, step-by-step.
