Now accepting new patient applications, the Takapuna branch of Noble Dental Specialists will combine its periodontic and restorative dentistry expertise to promote gum health and oral function.
Noble Dental Specialists utilises perioscopy and other non-invasive procedures to diagnose and treat gingivitis, which is the early stage of gum disease. Before it develops into gum disease, the Noble team can take preventative measures in order to save the patient’s teeth.
Left unaddressed, gingivitis can worsen and the infection can cause damage to the tooth sockets and ligaments, at which point teeth must be extracted. Signs of periodontal disease can include bleeding or receding gums, pain while chewing, sensitivity, and loose teeth. Depending on the severity of the case, Noble Dental can offer gum and bone grafting treatments. In conjunction with perioscopy, soft tissue and bone grafting methods can reduce bacteria growth and encourage tissue healing.
“During perioscopy, a miniature camera called a dental endoscope is attached to a small probe and gently placed below the gum line. With this unique visualisation we can be sure we achieve a thorough clean right to the bottom of the tooth pockets”, a spokesperson for the practice explained.
The Noble Dental Specialists clinic is also equipped to offer restorative dentistry services and has performed over 10,000 dental implants. Interested parties can find out more about dental implants by visiting https://www.nobledental.co.nz/implants-auckland
Besides aesthetic reasons, the periodontists recommend considering an implant after tooth loss to stop the spread of bacteria and to prevent bone recession. Estimates show that 50% of the width of the alveolar bone can be lost within 12 months of extractions if teeth are not replaced, which can affect the functionality of the jaw. With proper care, implants can provide patients with a permanent solution to tooth loss and are more comfortable than dentures.
