Gingival Or Gum Therapy
It is perhaps the most undervalued but nevertheless the most important aspect of oral health. The gums or gingivae along with the other supporting structures form what is known as the periodontium.
Gum therapy encompasses a wide range of treatments from scaling of the teeth(i.e cleaning) to flap surgeries, as indicated.
Gum therapies practiced at our clinic include:
- Scaling and polishing
- crown lengthening.
- draining and curettage of periodontal abscesses.
- flap surgery and curettage
- operculectomy 1 i.e. removal of the flap of tissue covering a wisdom tooth.
