The best periodontal microsurgery in Grenada

If your dentist has detected periodontitis and has mentioned the possibility of undergoing periodontal microsurgery, you should not worry, as it is a fast, safe and very minimally invasive procedure that will not cause any discomfort. Furthermore, in most cases, anesthesia is applied so that the patient does not feel the slightest pain during the process.

Periodontal microsurgery is used to treat conditions in which the patient's gums are inflamed or infected. During the procedure, the doctor will numb the gums and make a small incision in the gum tissue. Next, the diseased portion around the teeth will be removed and inlays or implants will be placed to help prevent further damage to the jaw bone. The procedure is usually done in two appointments so that you don't have to spend a lot of time under anesthesia at one time.
Thanks to periodontal microsurgery, the surgeon is able to maintain greater control over the patient's mouth.

When is periodontal microsurgery performed?

This treatment can have two objectives. The first is to remove bone that has been lost due to gum disease. The second purpose is to repair teeth damaged or fractured by periodontal disease.

When a tooth has been damaged, it can be difficult for doctors to determine which part of the tooth must be removed and which part must remain in order for it to function properly. This makes it difficult for them to provide accurate estimates of the amount of work that will need to be done during surgery. Periodontal microsurgery allows doctors and patients greater flexibility in treatment planning, as they can evaluate each case individually rather than following a set protocol based on general guidelines.

In short, this type of intervention is performed to restore damaged bone or gingival tissue.

How do you know if periodontal surgery is necessary?

It is very common to wonder whether or not it is necessary to carry out a periodontal microsurgery in the case of any type of gum problem.
The answer depends on a number of factors, such as your symptoms and the severity of the disease, but there are some general guidelines that can help you decide if this treatment is right for you.

First, if your gum line is receding or your teeth appear longer than they used to be, then you may be showing signs of periodontitis. This disease can also affect other parts of the mouth and body, including the heart and lungs, so it is important to take care of it as soon as possible.
