Scaling and root planing
Scaling is a non-surgical dental procedure commonly referred to as deep cleaning. It is used to treat gum diseases callled gingivitis and periodontitis.
Root planing is the second step, where the rough surfaces of the tooth roots are smoothed out. This step helps to prevent bacteria from adhering to the root surfaces and allows the gums to reattach more effectively.
Gum grafting, also known as gingival grafting or periodontal plastic surgery, is a dental procedure used to treat receding gums. Gum recession can occur due to various reasons, such as gum disease, aggressive tooth brushing, or genetic factors. Receding gums expose the tooth roots, which can lead to tooth sensitivity, root decay, and an unaesthetic appearance.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure commonly used in dentistry and orthopedics to augment or regenerate bone in areas where there is bone loss or insufficient bone volume. In dentistry, it is often performed in preparation for dental implants or to support the jawbone structure.
Periodontal surgery, also known as gum surgery or periodontal plastic surgery, is a set of surgical procedures performed to treat advanced gum disease or to correct certain gum-related issues.
Pocket reduction surgery
Pocket reduction surgery, also known as flap surgery or osseous surgery, is a common periodontal procedure performed to treat periodontitis. Periodontitis is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation and damage to the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums, periodontal ligament, and bone.
