Periodontist Rome Dr. Giorgio Tabanella
Are you looking for a periodontist in Rome? The periodontist is important for a healthy mouth and, indirectly, for an healthy body.
The periodontist is a dentist specialized only abroad, because in Italy does not exist this specialty, in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases as well as implant placement and reconstructive surgery when teeth and tissues have been destroyed by various pathological processes.
The periodontist also deals with restoring the aesthetics of the smile through surgical aesthetic procedures.
PERIODONTIST ROME: THE TREATMENTS
Dr. Tabanella is a periodontist with clinics in Rome and Mentana. He works for your smile mainly in these ways:
Improvement of soft tissue and management of edentulous saddles: this procedure improves the volume and aesthetics of toothless gingival areas.
Smile care: if you present the so-called "gummy smile" (that is, if you have an excessive gingival display), we work to sculpture the new smile.
Crown lengthening: performed to increase the visible part of the tooth. This happens thanks to different techniques that are taken into consideration according to the patient's need. Let's go over some of them:
Gingivectomy. It is used to eliminate excessive gingival tissues. The displacement of the flap in an apical manner: basically the periodontal tissues are shifted apically.
This procedure is imperative also to get access to the “burnished" calculus which is very difficult to remove during scaling and root planing.
The osseous resective surgery is based on the remodeling of the bony architecture which has been damaged by periodontal disease. The technique is gentle and minimally invasive but still allows to remove the residual periodontal pockets as well as eradicate the disease.
ARE PERIODONTITIS AND IMPLANTOLOGY CONNECTED?
Many of the implant surgeries that the periodontist/implatologist has to face are consequences of neglected periodontal diseases.
Periodontitis worries patients when symptoms become severe, that is when the teeth start moving or even falling. But, at this point, it is already too late and the only solution is to move to implantology, with obvious discomfort for the patient.
Moreover, in the most serious cases, when there is not enough bone volume, a regenerative osseo surgery, before the insertion of the implants, is not an option
PERIODONTIST ROME: BECAUSE A PERIODIC CHECK UP IS IMPORTANT
Prevention is the best defense against periodontal diseases; even a common gingivitis can hide a periodontitis.
Taking a check from the periodontist at least every 6 months or when changes in the condition of the mouth are noticed (bleeding and redness, halitosis or swelling of the gums) is the best solution to avoid serious and irreversible damage.
Periodontitis is a common disease in adulthood and advanced, but it can also affect children and adolescents: a visit from a periodontist is essential at any age.
Periodontal evaluation is an obligation even before any orthodontic treatment to avoid severe bone loss when patient is wearing an orthodontic appliance.
PERIODONTAL DISEASES: WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON RISK FACTORS
The most common predisposing factors are:
poor oral hygiene
diabetes and cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases
individual predisposition to the disease
The cause (etiology) of the disease are the anaerobic bacteria living in the absence of oxygen.
PERIODONTIST IN ROME: WHICH TYPE OF TOOLS DOES HE USE?
Explorer: it is a probe with rounded and graduated ends that allows you to lift and measure the depth of the pocket but without affecting or ruining it. It allows to detect subgingival calculus.
The gradient method of the part that enters under the gingiva has a scale in millimeters ranging from 0 to 4 (where 0 means healthy, 4 seriously ill).
Scaler Sickler, has a very sharp and triangular tip, is used for the removal of calculations and to work in particularly tight interdental spaces.
There are four variations and they differ in shape and use. Starting from the most delicate and less curved to the more sharp and more performing.
Universal curettes: they are composed of a blade with a rounded tip perpendicular to the lower stem. Their shape allows them to be used in cramped and small spaces.
Gracey curettes: they are specific for the removal of calculus and for the finishing of subgingival root surfaces. They are mainly used for molars.
