Periodontal diseases are the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. These diseases that take on many different forms are usually associated with poor oral hygiene. Wayne periodontist provides treatment for periodontal diseases that takes on many different forms but consequently result in a combination of bacterial plaque biofilm accumulation of the red complex bacteria. These disease further results in host of immuno-inflammatory mechanisms and other risk factors leading to destruction of the supporting bone around natural teeth. When left untreated, these diseases are serious enough to lead to alveolar bone loss and tooth loss.
Periodontology or periodontics as the specialty of dentistry involves studies of supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The professionals practicing peridontology and involved in the field of dentistry are known as peridontists. They treat the supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. As an emerging specialty in the field of dentistry which deals with the diseases of the tooth supporting structures periodontology includes clinical sessions with state of the art equipments and skills to carry out various treatment modalities to manage the patients suffering from periodontal diseases.
Main practice of periodontist involves the placement and maintenance of Wayne dental implants. There are different types of dental implants that have different uses. You will find that endosteal refers to an implant that is “in the bone,” and subperiosteal refers to an implant that rests on top of the jawbone under the gum tissue. As such today subperiosteal implants are no longer in use due to their unreliable long-term results as compared to endosteal dental implants.
Most often, patients choose dental implants for benefits of primary function of teeth replacement. In fact implants can assist in other dental procedures as they are stable and provide a more secure and comfortable fit. If you are planning Wayne dental implants it is necessary that the dental implant surgery be performed under local anesthetic and under expert guidance.
The procedure for getting a dental implant varies and during the consult and planning stage, the dental surgeon or periodontist will visually examine the site in the mouth where a dental implant is being considered. He may prefer dental imaging studies X-rays and CT scans to facilitate the exact position.
