Gum Therapy (or) Scaling and Root Planing (SRP) is the most effective way to treat gum disease.During SRP, your dentist Dr.Sujith Pandiaraj BDS, cleans between the gums and teeth, down to the root and uses local anesthetic to numb the gums and the roots of your teeth while the procedure is performed.JSP Dental Clinic provides the best Gum Therapy treatment in Thoothukudi.Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it.


Gum disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on the teeth. These bacteria create toxins that can damage the gums. In the early stage of gum disease, called gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated by daily brushing and flossing. In the more advanced stages of gum disease, called periodontitis, the gums and bone that support the teeth can become seriously damaged. The teeth can become loose, fall out or may have to be removed by a dentist.


In JSP Dental Clinic we are proving the Gum Lifting Treatments.Gum lifting, also known as ‘gingivectomy’, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure which improves the aesthetics of your smile by ensuring the gum line of your teeth is in the best possible position to show off your teeth.It is usually done in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers or crowns. The aim of a gum lift is to restructure excessive or uneven gum tissue surrounding your teeth so your gums are symmetrical and in proportion to your smile, rather than having a ‘gummy smile’. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. The gum area around the front teeth is usually the only area corrected, as this is the most visible section of your smile. Your dentist Dr.Sujith Pandiaraj BDS, will cut into and reshape the unsightly gum area, using a soft tissue laser to seal off the blood vessels and minimise any bleeding. There are no stitches involved, and the procedure is usually very quick and relatively painless. You should be able to eat and drink within 24 hours after surgery, and your gums will heal completely within the week after. Any pain after the procedure can be controlled using over the counter medicines, and should only be necessary immediately after the surgery.
