Before performing a periodontal treatment, a correct personalised diagnosis is essential. X-rays and clinical tests will be run to establish the degree of the disease and a personalised prognosis.
When the gum that covers the roots of the teeth recedes, we provide microsurgical techniques, under local anaesthesia, to recover the lost gum and thus improve the prognosis for the tooth. In most cases a gum graft has to be taken from the palate to cover the exposed root. These techniques cause practically no discomfort to the patient after the operation.
There are certain deformities due to excess or defect of gums that compromise the aesthetics and basically the aesthetics of your smile. At our clinic we have the most advanced surgical techniques to correct these deformities.
In certain circumstances bone loss caused by periodontal disease can be regenerated. There are several biomaterials and proteins that stimulate bone formation that may be used in specific cases.
All of the surgical procedures at our clinic are performed with magnification techniques, which allow us to more precisely manipulate the tissue and achieve faster healing with less discomfort.
Bad breath or halitosis is a health problem with important social repercussions that affect a large portion of the population. Once other causes have been discarded, we must make a correct diagnosis to establish its etiology and thus focus on the specific solution.
