Periodontics in Mississauga
If you have issues or concerns with the health of your gums, it’s very important to seek periodontal treatment—healthy gums protect your teeth from infection and other problems.
Some periodontal services are designed to help prevent problems with your gums, and some treatments are about correcting an existing problem. Either way, the purpose is to help you maintain healthy gums and the teeth that depend on them.
To prevent the spread of infection to healthy teeth, damaged teeth sometimes need to be removed. We can both extract the problem tooth, and provide restorations to replace it.
Sometimes tissues in your mouth—particularly under your tongue—are too tight. A frenectomy relieves the tension, which can make it more comfortable to eat and talk.
Scaling and root planing
Scaling and root planing remove plaque and tartar buildup from the roots of your teeth to help prevent inflammation and infection of the gums.
A gum graft is a way to treat and repair damaged gums by grafting gum tissue from another area of the mouth onto the area that’s deficient.
