More about this treatment

Periodontal Regeneration in Burgess Hill information

Periodontal Regeneration in Burgess Hill is a treatment that leads to a more stable tooth and a more aesthetic gum line. Gum disease is a very stubborn condition and sometimes it is not possible to achieve complete gum health through Supportive Periodontal Care or Professional Mechanical Plaque Removal alone. In some cases it is possible to stabilise and regenerate the bone around a tooth.

During your appointment a local anaesthetic injection will be placed into the gum next to the teeth being treated. When the gum and teeth are completely numb, the gum pocket is gently lifted to allow direct access to remove the plaque and calculus below the gum line using the most advanced ultrasonic equipment. A regenerative material like Emdogain® (a protein based gel containing Amelogenin) or Cerabone® (a natural bovine bone substitute) is placed into the bone defect. Finally the gum is replaced with a few small stitches allowing for a tighter gum pocket.

Periodontal Regeneration FAQs

What will I feel during a Periodontal Regenerative treatment?

The local anaesthetic injection will feel like a small sharp scratch or pinch, after which your gum and tooth will be numb. You now will not feel any pain during the treatment.

The numb sensation feels tingly or heavy around the teeth being treated including the  lips, chin, cheek and tongue. You can feel a sensation of pressure during the periodontal surgery which is not painful. Advanced ultrasonic equipment is used with water and gentle vibration to professionally clean and polish your teeth removing plaque, calculus (tartar) and staining.

How long does the treatment take?

The time spent performing a Periodontal Regenerative treatment is approximately 30-60 minutes and the total treatment time is 60-90 minutes.

Will I have to take time off work?

We recommend taking the rest of the day off work. Most people would have recovered enough to go back to work the next day. Every individual will heal at a different rate, so you may require an additional 1-5 days off work.

What can I expect afterwards?

The numb sensation generally lasts 2-4 hours. We do not recommend you chew any food or drink hot drinks while you are numb to prevent you from chewing your lip, cheek or tongue and burning your mouth. You are able to drink water straight after this treatment.

Some minor bleeding after treatment is normal and your saliva can appear pink for 24 hours afterwards. There can be some slight bruising and/or swelling which usually settles after 3-5 days after treatment. There will be stitches which are usually removed after 7-14 days.

Will I be in pain afterwards?

It is common to feel some soreness after this treatment. We recommend taking a pain killer straight away, while you are still numb. We recommend Paracetamol and/or Ibuprofen, which is available over the counter. Taking pain killers will help prevent any immediate discomfort or pain. Every individual will experience a different level of soreness and so you may need to take pain killers for the next 1-5 days after treatment.

Can I be sedated for this treatment?

Yes. Sedation involves giving you medicine into a vein via a small cannula that makes you feel sleepy and relaxes you both physically and mentally. This medicine is given to you by an Anaesthetist or a Dental Sedationist. You will need someone to take you home afterwards.
