PERIODONTAL TREATMENT AND SURGERY
Periodontal Disease starts when plaque and tartar (calculus) are allowed to accumulate at the base of your teeth. The bacteria in the plaque leads to an infection in the gums (gingiva) called Gingivitis. Gingivitis is an early stage of periodontal disease where the gums may become red, swollen, and bleed easily. Left untreated, the infection spreads to the tissue and bone that holds your teeth in place, a condition called Periodontitis (Pyorrhea). Because of the bacterial infection associated with Periodontitis, tooth abscesses are also common.
Periodontal Disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. More importantly, the infection releases toxins into the bloodstream leading to serious health risks.
There is a growing body of scientific evidence suggesting possible links between periodontal disease and other systemic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory infection, pancreatic cancer and oral cancers.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the bone support of your natural teeth. There are numerous disease entities requiring different treatment approaches.

WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION
Wisdom tooth removal involves taking out the wisdom teeth at the back of the mouth that are causing problems.
Wisdom teeth usually emerge from the gum between the ages of 17 and 24. They are the last of the large molar teeth at the back of the mouth. Some people never develop wisdom teeth but you can have up to four – one in each corner of the mouth. Often times, they are “impacted”.
Impacted wisdom teeth might cause serious problems such as infection or jaw cysts and they should be removed as early as possible.
In addition to more than 28 years of experience in wisdom tooth removal, our Clinic is equipped with state of the art diagnostic radiographic machines such as Panoramic Radiograph and 3D Conebeam CT Scan which improve diagnostic accuracy, treatment precision, and patient satisfaction.
