Gum Treatment

Periodontics (Gum Treatment) Scaling and gum surgery

At Shalby, we use the latest Piezo Scaler tips to clean deeply beneath the gums. This eliminates the chances of scratching the enamel. If deposits are not removed on time, it might lead to gum recession which would deteriorate the bone surrounding the teeth and ultimately loosen the teeth.

Under such circumstances, we suggest ' Flap surgery' to save the natural teeth. It is a minor surgical procedure done under local anesthesia. In this procedure, we reflect gums and remove deposits, perform Debridement, clear the infection and then suture them back to their normal position. This not only saves the teeth but also relieves the recurring pain related to receding gums and bone loss. At Shalby we complete this treatment in single sitting with absorbable suture which dissolve by themselves, so there’s no need for any follow-up.


Ultra Sonic Scaling

To fight periodontal disease, we need to reduce plaque, tartar, and the number of bacteria in the pockets in your mouth. One device we use to remove calculus from teeth is an ultrasonic scaler. It consists of a wand with a small scaling tip that produces a soft ultrasonic vibration. The small, quick vibrations in combination with a water flow give us a whole new level of effectiveness in calculus removal.

The benefits of ultrasonic scaling include:

  • Increased efficiency of calculus removal
  • Less need for hand scaling of stubborn deposits
  • More comfortable access to the root surfaces, thanks to the small tip
