Siesta Key periodontics
It is true, and understandable to some extent, that people tend to focus on their teeth only. Sometimes, even dentists are guilty of that. Your teeth are what you use to chew, they form the basis for your smile, and they are the most obvious physical characteristic among your oral structures. However, without the healthy gum and bone tissue to support your teeth, they are of little use. Here at Russo Periodontics, we give equal time to those vital parts of your oral anatomy, and are pleased to provide essential procedures like bone and tissue regeneration.
You may be wondering what that is exactly. Bone and gum tissue can atrophy or be destroyed. One example of this is when you have lost teeth that have not been replaced with an implant. There is a likelihood that the gum and bone, left unused, will erode. Then later, you may wish to get a dental implant but find that your gum and bone are not sufficient to support one. Your need for our Siesta Key periodontics, though, can extend to other situations, such as the effects of advanced gum disease, in which your gum and bone become weaker and may even be lost. Bone and tissue regeneration works like this: the stimulation of new tissue growth is spurred on by surgically placing a small mesh-like piece between the gums and the bone. Bone and connective tissue can then grow into the area where is meant to, without the gums getting in the way. This procedure may be supplemented by another form our Siesta Key periodontics for dealing specifically with the creation of new gum tissue, if required.
Our Siesta Key periodontics are committed to helping you to regain your optimal oral well-being, both now and in the long term. Why not call our office right now and arrange a convenient time to come in for a consultation?
Periodontics Siesta Key
A periodontal or deep cleaning is like the teeth cleaning that you get when you have your twice-yearly dental checkup. The difference is that it is designed to address the progression of gum disease and its effects on you. Here at Russo Periodontics, we periodontics in Siesta Key are dedicated to your optimal gum health, and doing so means halting and reversing what dental plaque and tartar can lead to if they are not kept in check.
Brushing and flossing at home goes a long way toward maintaining your the wellness of your gums. Those methods remove most of the plaque that forms on and between your teeth. But some it will manage to hide out of reach, such as in your gum pockets. It can then harden into tartar, which can only be eliminated with a teeth cleaning. In fact, even early stage gum disease, gingivitis, can be stopped with a teeth cleaning, and its symptoms will subside afterward. That’s good news. When you will need the help of our periodontics in Siesta Key is if you have put off your six month dental exam and cleaning, allowing gum disease to become advanced. The signs will be noticeable. You are likely to experience gums that bleed when you brush, persistent bad breath, and receding gums. You may even lose vital gum and bone tissue and find that your teeth are loose. You should consider such indications an urgent matter and seek out our periodontics in Siesta Key right away. A deep cleaning gets down to the roots to eradicate the plaque and tartar, and put you back on the road to an optimal state of periodontal well-being. If you don’t act quickly, you might end up losing one or more teeth.

If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. Today, dental implants are an extremely popular way for patients to have their missing teeth replaced because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you are getting dental implants, it is very important that you see a dentist such as ours who is highly skilled in precisely placing the dental implant roots. This success of dental implants depends on proper placement, and is why many patients who want to get dental implants seek us out at Russo Periodontics for Sarasota periodontics care.
Our expert periodontist is Dr. John Russo. When a patient first comes to our periodontal practice to get dental implants, our dentist will need to examine the jawbone to make sure that it is healthy and thick enough for the procedure. This is because the jawbone will need to be healthy enough to easily heal from surgery, and the dental implant root will need to be able to tightly fuse to the jawbone. If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for dental implants because your jawbone is not healthy enough, our periodontist will most likely be able to provide you with Sarasota periodontics care so that your jawbone will be able to easily accommodate the dental implants. This is done with a bone grafting procedure which will strengthen and thicken your jawbone.
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for dental implants, our periodontist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Today, dental implants are also use to secure dentures or removable bridges. Once our periodontist determines that the healing process has completed, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of each dental implant root. At this point your dental implant will be complete and you will be able to smile and eat in total confidence once again. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic teeth cleanings, your new dental implants should last for a lifetime. Dental implants may however be affected by gum disease, so it is extremely important that you keep your gums healthy. Our periodontist will certainly be able to help you with that, should you need any type of subsequent gum treatments to help your gums get back to excellent health.
