What if I told you that there have been advancements in dentistry that might just change your perception of periodontal care? Well, I’m telling you that there are new techniques that reduce invasive procedures and make recovery much easier for patients dealing with dental implants, gum recession, bone grafting and more.
According to the Canadian Dental Association, seven out of 10 Canadians will develop gum disease at some time in their lives. It is the most common dental problem, and it often goes undiagnosed until there is an unavoidable problem. We can guarantee that these same seven out of 10 Canadians have not all visited a periodontist to address their gum disease needs. While some simply receive treatments from their primary dental provider, others ignore the issue altogether until it becomes too big to ignore.
We believe that the perception that periodontal procedures can be invasive and painful are keeping patients away. The best periodontal clinics understand that they need to offer more gentle techniques to ensure people are putting their dental health first. The team at Periodontal Associates in Mississauga have a wide variety of techniques that provide the same results to your gum disease concerns, with limited invasion, pain and recovery time.
Advancements in Periodontal Dentistry in Mississauga
Let’s take a look at how far periodontal dentistry procedures have come:
Sedation Dentistry: For those with anxiety about dental procedures, there are sedation options to make the experience more comfortable for you. From the minimal sedation where you are awake but in a more relaxed state, to the deeper sedation options where you are asleep and not able to remember anything about the procedure following, there is a procedure to help even the most anxious patient.

Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique: Gone are the days of intrusive gum recession surgery to address receding gums. Today our expert periodontal team uses the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique where they make a small hole in the gum tissue, then use special instruments to gently loosen that same tissue to help expand and slide the gum line to cover the exposed root structure.

Laser Surgery: Advancements in dental laser surgery are being made every day and clinics, like Periodontal Associates of Mississauga, are able to offer patients pain-free treatments for their gum disease issues. Laser surgery is case-specific, so ask your periodontist for more details and see if laser surgery may be right for you. Let’s Talk
