Periodontal Pocket Procedures in Carmel

Periodontal pockets, the spaces that develop between the teeth and gums due to gum disease, are a silent yet serious threat to oral health. These pockets harbor bacteria, leading to infection, bone loss, and ultimately, tooth loss. Therefore, it's essential to seek treatment at the earliest signs of periodontal disease.

Periodontal pocket procedures will help you maintain strong, healthy gums which are fundamental to overall oral health, preventing discomfort and enhancing your ability to enjoy meals without worry.

Comprehensive Treatments for Periodontal Pockets

There are a wide array of treatments for periodontal pockets to protect your oral health:

Scaling and Root Planing: In the early stages, non-surgical procedures like scaling and root planing can remove plaque and tartar from periodontal pockets and smooth the tooth root to prevent further plaque buildup.
Pocket Reduction Surgery: For deeper pockets, we may recommend pocket reduction surgery, where the gum tissue is folded back to remove the bacteria before securing the tissue into place, reducing the pocket depth.
Gingivectomy: This procedure involves removing excess gum tissue to eliminate the pockets altogether.
Regenerative Procedures: In some cases, the periodontist might need to remove a small amount of bone from around the roots of the teeth.
