Getting To Know Hygienists And Periodontists

Patients are always told by dental professionals that prevention is always better than a cure.

Additionally, we are always taught that the primary focus of dental hygiene is to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

In fact, hygienists and periodontists usually start with an evaluation of a dental patient’s periodontal or gum tissue during a dental visit. Through clearing away tartar (calculus) and plaque, dentists can better the health of the gums and reduce the risks of gum disease.

But there a few circumstances where a patient may necessitate other periodontal treatments. Periodontics is the branch the area of dentistry most relevant for these folks. Periodontics comprises of bone grafts, implant surgery, treatment of gingivitis, gum lifts, and gum disease treatment.

The main objective of implant surgery is to recover teeth that can no longer be restored using the traditional method.

It matters to understand that bone augmentation or bone grafting composes of the insertion of synthetic filler bone to stimulate the development of the natural bone surrounding it.

On the other hand, the cosmetic lifting of the gum line of the front 6 teeth is known as a gum lift. Luckily, at present, a dental professional can use a laser to perform a gum lift. Thus, this treatment is virtually painless, more effective, and faster. Best of all, laser treatment doesn’t require stitches and heals more rapidly.

To become a registered specialist, it is fundamental to obtain the same qualifications as a general dentist. Aside from this, it is also necessary to obtain further education and/or specific training.
