Central Park West Dental Studio offers comprehensive periodontics services to cater to the specific needs of patients with gum disease and other periodontal conditions. Their skilled team of periodontists utilizes the latest techniques and advanced technology to provide high-quality periodontal care. Here are the details of the periodontics services offered by Central Park West Dental Studio:
Gum Disease Treatment: Central Park West Dental Studio specializes in treating gum diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease characterized by inflammation of the gums due to plaque and bacteria buildup. If left untreated, it can progress into periodontitis, where the infection spreads deeper into the gums and can cause damage to the bone and supporting structures. Their periodontists are trained to diagnose the stage of gum disease accurately and provide appropriate treatment to manage and control the infection.
Scaling and Root Planing: Central Park West Dental Studio offers scaling and root planing, a non-surgical procedure to treat gum disease. During this treatment, the periodontist carefully removes the plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gumline, as well as smoothing the tooth root surfaces to discourage bacteria accumulation and promote gum reattachment.
Gum Grafting: In cases of gum recession, where the gum tissue pulls back from the tooth, exposing the root surface, gum grafting may be necessary. Gum grafting is a surgical procedure in which the periodontist takes tissue from another area of the mouth (or uses synthetic materials) and places it over the exposed root, restoring gum tissue and preventing further recession.
Pocket Reduction Procedures: Advanced cases of periodontitis may lead to deep pockets forming between the gums and teeth. These pockets harbor bacteria, leading to further damage to the periodontium. Central Park West Dental Studio’s periodontists perform pocket reduction procedures (also called flap surgery) to access and clean the deep pockets, remove diseased tissue, and reduce pocket depths, promoting gum and bone regeneration.
Dental Implant Maintenance: Central Park West Dental Studio provides specialized dental implant maintenance services. Regular check-ups and cleanings for dental implants are essential to ensure the long-term success and health of the implants. Their periodontists monitor the stability of the implants, assess the health of the surrounding gum tissues, and make any necessary adjustments or treatments to maintain the implants’ function and longevity.
Treatment of Gum Infections: Central Park West Dental Studio’s periodontists are skilled in diagnosing and treating various gum infections, including abscesses and other oral infections. They provide appropriate treatment to eliminate the infection, alleviate discomfort, and promote gum healing.
Bone Grafting: In cases where gum disease has caused bone loss in the jaw, bone grafting may be necessary to regenerate and restore the lost bone structure. Bone grafts provide a foundation for dental implants and help maintain facial aesthetics and function.
Central Park West Dental Studio’s periodontics services are integral to maintaining excellent oral health and preventing the progression of gum disease. Their experienced periodontists work closely with patients, educating them about their condition and the importance of proper oral hygiene and maintenance. By offering comprehensive and personalized periodontal care, Central Park West Dental Studio aims to improve the overall well-being and oral health of their patients.
