Periodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. It focuses on treatment of the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth and jaw.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, often begins as a buildup of plaque on the surface of teeth near the gum line. If not removed by regular brushing and flossing, the plaque can harden into tartar. Eventually the gums will become red, swollen, and irritated. This is known as gingivitis.
If left untreated, gingivitis can worsen into periodontal disease. If that is not treated, it can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems. Periodontal disease during pregnancy has been linked to premature birth or low birth weight.
Risk factors for periodontal disease
You may be at risk of periodontal disease if you smoke or use tobacco products, do not regularly brush your teeth and floss, have health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or osteoporosis, or have family members that have had gum disease. In some cases, it can be genetic.
If you observe any of the symptoms of gum disease, schedule an appointment with our office, and we’ll determine if treatment is necessary.
Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures are available to help enhance the aesthetics of your teeth and gums. Here are some examples of popular procedures:
During a root coverage procedure, gum tissue from your palate is used to cover the exposed tooth roots. These procedures are used to cover roots, develop gum tissue where needed, or to make dental implants look more natural. In some cases,
this procedure can cover exposed roots to protect them from decay or prepare your teeth for orthodontic treatment. Your tooth sensitivity may be reduced as well, and your smile may also improve!
Crown lengthening is a procedure to remove excess gum tissue, exposing more of the “crown” of the tooth. This procedure is for patients who feel their teeth are too short or their gum line is uneven. The gum line is then sculpted to create the right proportion between gum tissue and tooth surface. This can be done to just one tooth, or to enhance your entire smile.
Sometimes you may need a few of these procedures to build the framework for your perfect smile. Often, periodontal plastic surgery is used to lay the foundation for further cosmetic enhancements, such as orthodontics and veneers. A combination of periodontal procedures can result in a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health- your keys to smiling, eating, and speaking with comfort and confidence.
designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
After more than five decades and over a million patients treated, statistics confirm dental implants have a success rate of 95 - 98%. They are a permanent solution and quickly becoming the standard of care.
Dr. Isler's scope of treatments and expertise with dental implants means he can address your unique conditions with a variety of solutions.
EXTRACTION AND SOCKET PRESERVATION
Sometimes during treatment teeth are identified which require removal or extraction. The bone that holds the tooth in place is called the socket. It is often damaged by disease and infection resulting in a jaw deformity. To remedy this condition a socket preservation procedure may be used.
Several techniques can be utilized to preserve the bone after extraction and minimize bone loss adjacent to the socket. The socket can be filled with bone grafting material. It is then covered with a biocompatible barrier to encourage your body to repair itself by regenerating lost bone and tissue. The gum is closed and healing is allowed to occur. The bone is usually allowed to mature from a few months to as long as twelve months before dental implants or restorative treatment is completed.
SINUS LIFT PROCEDURE
When there is inadequate bone to support a dental implant a solution called a sinus graft or sinus lift graft may be used. Our surgeon enters the sinus from where the upper teeth used to be. The sinus membrane is then gently lifted and donor bone is inserted into the floor of the sinus. After several months of healing dental implants can be planned.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Milford, MI
A breakthrough treatment for gum recession
What is the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)?
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is incision and suture free.
How does the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) differ from traditional gum grafting?
Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
How is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) performed?
During the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure. There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
What are the benefits of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)?
The benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are many:
• Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
• Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
• No need for uncomfortable sutures
• No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
• No need to take donor tissue from the patient’s palate
• Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results
