Periodontics

Periodontics is a dental specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the supporting teeth structures. A periodontist, such as your dentist at Norton Dental Barrie provides an extensive variety of treatments such as scaling and root planing. We treat patients suffering from severe gum problems using advanced surgical procedures. We also offer dental implants for patients in need of tooth replacement.

Periodontal treatment helps restore the health of your teeth and gums by reducing the size of gum pockets, minimizing the risks of infection, and decreasing inflammation to stop the damage of gum disease.

Periodontal treatment options will depend on the progression of periodontal disease in each case. Other factors include the patient's response to previous treatments and general health. Gum disease treatments may include non-surgical therapies to simply regulate bacterial growth or surgical procedures to reconstruct supporting tissue. 

Some cases of gum disease progress painlessly, even in its later stages. Early detection of periodontal disease is only made possible by regular dental examinations and professional teeth cleanings. Gum disease symptoms include:

  • Swollen, red, or sensitive gums
  • Changes in the fit of partial dentures
  • Receding gums
  • Changes in bite
  • Shifting or loose teeth
  • Gum that bleed during or after brushing
  • Formation of deep pockets between the gums and teeth

Our team of specialists at Norton Dental Barrie possess years of experience and continue to remain well-informed of the latest advancements in technique and technology concerning periodontal treatment. Norton Dental Barrie ensures all patients receive treatment that is painless, comfortable and judgement-free. 

At Norton Dental Barrie we understand that patients may be apprehensive as a result of poor experiences in the past or feel embarrassed because at some point in their live they were unable to afford proper care. Other patients may be unaware of just how effective modern periodontics is in treating gum disease. We look to restore not only the smiles of these patients, but their faith in our ability to provide them with a better quality of life. We provide an unprecedented standard of excellence to promote faster healing, less invasive methods and incredible results.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a tooth replacement that is secured within the jaw for long lasting, natural looking results. Dental implants may be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire arch. A full arch restoration is called an All-On-4 procedure and uses a mere four dental implants to restore an entire set of teeth.

Tooth implants are constructed of a small titanium screw, and implant post and a dental crown. Once the dental implants are placed in the jaw, they begin to permanently fuse with the jawbone helping preserve bone density that is require for supporting facial features. Tooth implants are natural in appearance and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants are unrivaled in longevity and stability and do not require adjacent teeth to be modified.

The dental implant procedure requires the surgical placement of small titanium screw placed in the jaw and allowed to heal. A dental crown is then placed on top and the procedure is complete.

Osseointegration is what allows the titanium screw to become fully integrated into the jawbone. Once accepted as a natural tooth, the post is used to secure the dental crown for a natural appearance.

Dental implant problems are uncommon. Dental implants risks and complications are fewer than 5 percent. Patients who smoke may have decreased bone density in the jaw. However, our experienced dental implant dentist at Norton Dental Barrie has extensive experience in advanced techniques to maximize the use of bone tissue for successful dental implant placement. Smoking hinders the body's ability to heal. If you are a smoker, you may be advised to quit before proceeding with the dental implant procedure.

Dental implants cost depends on the amount of teeth being restored, the type of implant used and whether additional procedures are required such as bone grafting or tooth extraction. Dental implant prices will be discussed with you during your dental implant consult here at Norton Dental Barrie.
