Following root planing and scaling, some patients will receive additional therapies. Surgical Procedures Laser treatment – studies reveal that laser treatment for periodontal disease provide similar results to those achieved with scaling and root planing. Gum graft surgery – this procedure is used to develop gum tissue or cover the roots of teeth where excessive gingival recession is present.

As a result, you will want to consider seeing a cosmetic dentist if you want dental implants that will help the appearance of your teeth by replacing any missing teeth or if you simply want dental implants installed that can help hold your dentures in place and you don 't have to worry about them shifting about when you are going about your daily routine. Fillings Finally, you should consider going to a cosmetic dentist in order to get fillings put in. The primary reason for this is that if you go the traditional dentist they are typically going to put in a standard metal filling, which is effective but not exactly the most aesthetically pleasing option. However, if you see a cosmetic dentist for the same procedure, they will typically use material that matches the color of your teeth so that the overall appearance of your smile isn 't negatively affected by the color of the filling.

If you have many teeth missing, such as a full arch of teeth, then there’s a better alternative than getting so many single implanted roots and teeth. The All-oOn-4 implants are similar to dentures in that they will replace all of the teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth. They use replacement teeth, again made specifically for your mouth. But dentures are normally held in place using a special adhesive and the shape of the gum mold holding the teeth. That means they can slide around in your mouth and even fall out.
They view social media as a freedom of speech and so do not believe it should affect their profession. These individuals feel that having clients on their social media is not an issue. Others strongly believe that what you post directly reflects onto your profession and so you should be keeping your social media either very private or posting only professional and appropriate content. Those who feel this way often believe that posting photos that involve drinking makes the dental hygiene profession look poorly. It would come across as unprofessional and send the message to current as well as prospective patients they may have on their social media, that those who are working at that clinic are irresponsible.
Bruxism is often linked to TMD because they can be treated in similar ways. Bruxism is the involuntary grinding or clenching of the teeth, usually unknowingly during sleep or work.

If it hurts to chew and your mouth is tender, you might have a gum problem.
Traditional restorative dentistry propagated early operative intervention to remove diseased tissue and bacteria. Modern dentistry, however, emphasises on arresting the caries progression and restoring the tooth with minimum tissue destruction. Minimal invasive dentistry is based on this axiom. A drawback in restorative dentistry is the occurrence of secondary caries[18,19] that has compelled us to practice a more extensive form in the past. MID also displays the same drawback.
