Deep Cleaning

Click Here – Teeth Care Centre® Teeth Cleaning and Polishing Treatment Guide
Scaling with root planing is termed as deep cleaning. Scaling involves removal of plaque and tartar upto gumline, while root planing is cleaning below gumline using specific dental instruments in order to clean and prevent any bacterial accumulation which otherwise may collect and cause serious gum problems.

Regular cleaning involves removal of plaque and tartar, but it only targets the surfaces of the tooth above the gumline. Deep cleaning on the other hand targets the surfaces at and below gumline, which if not cleaned may give rise to various gum diseases. Deep cleaning prevents the progression of gum diseases and prevents gum inflammation.

Bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, loose teeth, red and swollen gums, or pus around teeth and gums are some of the symptoms indicative of gum disease. Most of these signs are painless and may often go unnoticed which may aggravate the gum disease and can lead to early teeth loss.

We at Teeth Care Centre have a team of high qualified gum specialists who helps to identify these signs of gum diseases and cure it before its progression. The entire procedure of deep cleaning is performed with utmost care and precision in order to provide a pleasant and painless dental experience. We use highly advanced and world renowned Ultrasonic Scaler and Hand Scalers in order to ensure maximum treatment outcome to our patients. We also use high end dental lasers for deep cleaning to render a comfortable, bloodless and painless dental treatment. With variety of patient friendly treatment options, we aim to beat gum disease and keep dental problems at bay.

Gum Surgery

Gum surgery is performed to gain access to the roots of the teeth in cases where non-surgical procedures fail to maintain the periodontal (gum) health. Gum surgeries lift the gums to allow visualization and gain access to the root to eliminate gum infection to restore health, beauty and function of the gums.

Clinical signs for gum surgery are foul odour from mouth; red, swollen or bleeding gums. It is indicated in severe gum diseases, wherein the gums get inflamed up to an extent where they start causing destruction of the bone and tissues surrounding it. Inflammation of gums further leads to the development of pockets or spaces between the gums and the teeth which trap the food and bacteria and cause infection. This eventually causes tooth loss and bone damage.

Sometimes the gum surgery also involves the grafting procedures like:
Bone grafting:This procedure replaces the damaged or destroyed bone surrounding the root of the tooth with new bone.
Tissue grafting: This procedure is used in case of gum recession wherein gum line is noticeably lowered or aesthetically not pleasing.

Teeth Care Centre has specialised gum surgeon called periodontist. We use magnification loupes to perform precise and accurate surgery.  We also provide the option of laser gum surgery which are less traumatic, blood less and painless compared to the conventional gum surgeries performed with blades. Laser gum surgeries are less invasive and therefore ensure faster healing.

Splint Therapy

Splinting is the dental procedure used to join two or more loose teeth together in order to evenly distribute the biting forces amongst all teeth. Splinting is used to stabilize mobile teeth and to prevent drifting or tipping. Usually splinting of teeth is done to immobilize mobile teeth following a dental trauma.

Extra Coronal Splints: These are the splints which are bonded to the outer surfaces of the teeth to hold and stabilize the teeth together.
Intra Coronal Splints: These splints function through creation of small channel into the teeth and passing a preformed custom made metallic splint through it, which is then bonded or cemented together in place to hold the teeth together.
Crown Splinting: It permanently fixes the mobile teeth together by crowning all mobile teeth.
Occlusal Splints: Occlusal splints are used to protect the teeth from excessive biting forces in individuals with parafunctional habits like grinding and clenching.

Moreover it is extremely important to take proper care once splinting is completed in order to maintain stability of teeth. Avoid biting too hard on the splint and consume soft diet to prevent any splint breakage. It is also necessary to maintain a good oral hygiene with regular brushing to prevent accumulation of tartar formation near the splints. Contact sports should be avoided until advised.

Guided Tissue and Bone Regeneration

Guided bone and tissue regeneration are the surgical dental procedures which use bone graft material and barrier membranes to initiate the growth of new bone and gingival tissue in places with insufficient bone or gum volumes for proper function and aesthetics.

Guided bone regeneration
Guided bone regeneration surgeries like auto transplantation, ridge split and sinus lift is used for the development of hard tissues in the oral cavity. Bone graft is used to increase the height or width of the ridge in cases where it is resorbed. It is mainly used when the jaw ridge gets too narrow to place dental implants.
It is particularly indicated for the following purposes:
-Building up bone for implant placement
-Preserving socket after tooth extraction
-Filling up bone after cyst removal
-Repairing minor bone defects surrounding implant and teeth.

Guided tissue regeneration
Guided tissue regeneration is used for the development of soft tissue in the oral cavity. It is mainly indicated to address gum diseases which eventually result in pocket formation. It is used in case of gum recession wherein gum line is noticeably lowered. To fix this, our gum specialist removes a section of tissue from one part of the body and re-attaches it to the receded gum area thereby reducing the risk of further damage.

Teeth Care Centre® has a team of highly skilled dental surgeons who perform regenerative procedures with utmost accuracy and precision. We use cutting edge techniques and world class materials in order to achieve optimum results. We provide pain free and bloodless grafting procedures using lasers. Surgeries performed with lasers are less invasive and tend to heal faster.
