Periodontal treatments & Oral surgery
A periodontal treatment as well as pre-prosthetic surgery is often mandatory to prepare the tissues for further restorative procedures.
Such procedures aim to restore tissue health or promote a better tissue configuration before receiving aesthetic restorations. Healthy tissues are the prerequisite for long term success!
The extraction of third molars (wisdom teeth) is often indicated to avoid further problems such as inter-dental decay, formation of periodontal pockets or local chronic and acute infections. However, when third molars are accessible to regular hygiene and possibly also to minor restorative procedures, we do not propose their extraction.
Gingivitis is a common inflammatory affection of the gums around teeth (but also implants) which can be easily controlled with more efficient and regular personal hygiene measures.
