Periodontics (Gums Treatment) Periodontics refers to the discipline of dentistry that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of functional and structural diseases of the periodontal membrane (gum) and related tissues that surround and support the teeth. Degeneration or inflammation of the gum can be caused by various systemic or local diseases, or by poor oral hygiene.
Pocket Depth Reduction, one of GAOC's flagship services, is proven effective in the treatment of periodontal disease. It involves surgically reducing the height of the gum line, removing diseased or excessive tissue, and recontouring the underlying bone to prevent the progression of the disease.
Endodontics Endodontics deals with the treatment of the inside of the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the soft tissue inside the root canal becomes infected or inflamed. If left untreated, this could cause pain or lead to an abscess which could result to the extraction of the tooth. By undergoing an endodontic treatment, the tooth is cleared from infection and protected from subsequent infections. Root canal treatment is one of the more common types of endodontic treatment.
Orthodontics A winning smile is best complemented by straight, beautiful teeth. Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in this by overseeing the diagnosis, supervision, guidance, and correction of problems involving the alignment of the teeth and jaws. The most common type of orthodontic treatment is the application of braces and retainers. GAOC dentists are experts in the professional application and alignment of these corrective items to help the patient's teeth, lips, and jaws achieve facial balance.
Teeth Grinding Bruxism or teeth grinding is a serious condition that could severely damage the patient's teeth. Aside from treating the symptoms of the disease, GAOC Orthodontists provide effective prevention techniques in the form of mouth guards and splints or mandibular advancement devices (MADs). These items can effectively safeguard the patient's teeth from teeth grinding at night.
TMJ Disorders Therapy Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ) can severely affect a patient's nerves, muscles, teeth, and bone. The treatment for such is complex and often need professional analysis to create a treatment plan. GAOC's highly experienced dentists can provide customized therapies to help patients suffering from TMJ disoders.
