Scaling and Root Planing
A careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus [tartar] from deep periodontal pockets.
The use of local or systemic antibiotic therapy, or periodontal specific low dose antibiotic treatment is judiciously applied in our clinic.
Our state-of-the-art Waterlase iPlus by Biolase laser is the most advanced periodontal technology available. We select cases carefully and treat both surgical and non-surgical situations with great success and comfort.
A routine part of our treatment and examinations. If required, biopsies are done in our clinic.
The following are some common procedures prescribed for patients:
Pocket Reduction Procedures
When periodontal disease is extensive and destruction of the underlying bone and supporting tissues is involved, it is may be necessary to treat the disease through surgical access. The goals of this procedure are:
In our clinic, we prefer to regenerate the lost tissue due to periodontal disease. Several techniques and materials are used in our practise to maximize the regenerative potential of each situation. Careful case selection and applied technique are utilized whenever possible.
Crown lengthening is required when the edge of decay or a restoration is too deep below the gum tissue and not accessible. The procedure involves adjusting the level of the gum tissue and bone around the tooth to create access for the restorative material and allow longterm access for hygiene in this area.
When gingival recession occurs, grafting or reconstruction may be offered to create tissue strength to protect the area from bacteria and trauma. Gingival recession may result in root sensitivity, increase risk to decay as well as an altered aesthetic appearance. A gingival graft is designed to solve these problems and is a predictable procedure that can result in longterm strengthening and stability.
Dental Implant Procedures
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
In our clinic, we provide the services required to prepare the area for an implant which may involve gingival grafting or bone augmentation as well as the placement and longterm follow up of the implant.
Our clinic is also the only clinic in Ottawa to provide evaluation with the Ostell ISQ which can measure implant stability with minute electromagnetic measurements and reduces the risk of trauma to a healing implant.
