PERIODONTICS & HYGIENE PROGRAM
Periodontium is the tissue surrounding the tooth that consists of soft tissue (gum) and hard tissue (bone). Long-lasting accumulation of plaque and bacteria on teeth surfaces is the most common cause of inflammation in periodontal tissue. Therefore we offer our hygiene program to remove the causative factor from the tooth surfaces and instruct how to maintain healthy gums.
Patients who are enrolled in our hygiene program benefit from periodontic checkups at our office at certain intervals which are individually designed for each patient. The hygiene program is also a key element in maintaining the results our patients achieved after the completion of their treatment at our office.
Dental extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons. Tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration is the most frequent indication for extraction of teeth. Other indications are related to impacted or problematic wisdom teeth and also to make space for orthodontic treatment in some particular cases.
