Microbes infiltrate the gum tissue and help sustain inflammation.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is an immuno-inflammatory disease, which is triggered by oral microorganisms contained in dental plaque. In periodontitis, these mibrobes infiltrate the gum tissue and help sustain inflammation. Periodontitis often progresses without causing any pain or symptoms until the later stages at which point the disease is often very advanced and treatment is less effective.

Treatment for Periodontal Disease

Non-surgical treatment includes scaling and root planing under local anesthesia, antibiotics, and other plaque-control measures. Scaling and root planning (deep cleaning) is typically recommended when periodontal disease is diagnosed. Scaling and root planing is the complete removal of all deposits of plaque and tartar present on the tooth surface deep under the gum line.

Dr. Fokam offers a highly effective and gentle approach to scaling and root planing. Patients benefit from his use of the surgical microscope that allows him to see details of the teeth and root surfaces up to 26 times more clearly than with the naked eye alone. Dr. Fokam can therefore remove deposits and the bacterial source of the infection with significantly greater accuracy and precision which will provide faster healing times and a more comfortable experience.

All non-surgical procedures are well tolerated under local anesthesia and require minimal recovery time. Oral or IV sedatives can also be used to achieve a higher state of relaxation depending on the needs of an individual patient.

More severe cases of periodontal disease may require surgical treatment in order to eliminate the pockets, thoroughly clean the root surfaces, and reshape the bone contour.

Employs the use of cutting-edge techniques and materials in order to recreate some of the tissue lost due to periodontal disease, and effectively reverse the damage caused by gum disease. Regenerative procedures can be used to stimulate the growth of new bone. This growth increases the height of the bone around the tooth, giving the tooth more support, and increases the amount of attachment around the root of the tooth. Regenerative materials are placed into the defects created by gum disease to promote the growth of new bone and attachment around the teeth. To decrease your chances of other health problems associated with periodontal disease, it's important to continue your daily oral hygiene routine, along with professional maintenance care.

Dr. Fokam and his team always favour a minimally invasive approach whenever possible for the treatment of all cases periodontal disease.

Dr. Fokam uses a surgical microscope with a high magnification that allows him to better identify and remove even the tiniest amount of sub-gingival calculus, or damages.

Precision

Periodontal procedures deal with delicate and complex structures. Dental microsurgery allows Dr. Fokam to increase precision during surgeries. It also allows him to see greater detail and provide more precise care. The result is more effective, accurate, and naturally esthetic treatment.

Comfort

Dr. Fokam uses smaller instruments and more accurate movements during his procedures. This should make your results and recovery better even during extended treatments

Esthetics

Dental microsurgery can offer PerioClinik patients microsurgical procedures with high aesthetic outcomes. The technique also permits Dr. Fokam to place much smaller sutures, which creates a more natural result.

Healing

Dental microsurgery offers less invasive care. Your recovery should be shorter, and you should have less tenderness because of the conservative nature of the procedures.

Periodontal Maintenance

Although you’ve completed periodontal treatment, which included non-surgical and surgical therapies, and the disease is now under control, this doesn’t mean that you’re healed forever.

Periodontal treatment corrects the effects of the disease – gum detachment and bone deformities – to restore your periodontal health, but it doesn’t change your susceptibility. Without continuing maintenance care, periodontal disease can recur.

For Those with a History of Periodontal Disease

For individuals with gingivitis, periodontal maintenance may be adequate at six-month intervals to begin with. For individuals with a history of periodontal disease, the data from the majority of the scientific studies suggest that a three-month periodontal maintenance interval will result in decreased likelihood of progressive disease compared to individuals receiving maintenance on a less frequent basis.

For Those with Aggressive Forms of Periodontal Disease

For those with more aggressive variants of periodontal disease, it may be necessary to have periodontal maintenance every two months. Additionally, systemic medication, topical antibiotics, or other antibacterials, for example, may be needed to support maintenance.
