    What are the treatments offered by our periodontists?

    Dental surgical treatments encompass a wide range of procedures that are performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, and other dental specialists to address various oral and dental issues. Here is a list of some common dental surgical treatments:


    1. Tooth Extraction

    The removal of a tooth, often due to decay, non-restorability, infection, crowding, or impacted wisdom teeth.


    2. Wisdom Teeth Removal (Third Molar Extraction)

    The extraction of wisdom teeth, which often require surgical procedures due to their position and complexity.


    3. Dental Implants

    Surgical placement of implants into the jawbone to support replacement teeth (crowns, bridges, or dentures).


    4. Gum Graft Surgery

    A surgical procedure to treat gum recession by taking tissue from one area of the mouth or synthetic substitutes and grafting it onto the affected receded site.


    5. Periodontal Surgery

    Various surgical procedures to treat advanced periodontal disease (periodontitis), such as flap surgery and pocket reduction surgery.


    6. Crown Lengthening

    Surgical reshaping of the gum and bone to expose more of the tooth's structure, often performed in preparation for restorative work or cosmetic procedures.


    7. Apicoectomy

    Surgical removal of the tip of a tooth's root, often necessary when a root canal treatment is unsuccessful.


    8. Bone Grafting

    Adding bone tissue to the jaw to strengthen it and prepare for dental implants or other restorative procedures.


    9. Sinus Lift Surgery

    A procedure to increase bone volume in the upper jaw to support dental implants.


    10. Dental Trauma Repair

    Surgical procedures to repair injuries to the teeth, gums, or jaw resulting from accidents or trauma.


    These are just some of the common dental surgical treatments, and the specific procedure required will depend on the patient's oral health condition and treatment goals. Patients should consult with a dental specialist or periodontist to determine the most appropriate course of action for their specific needs.
