What is Supragingival Dentistry?
All procedures in medicine and dentistry can be provided with a variety of approaches, some aggressive and invasive, some extremely minimally invasive, like scope micro-surgery. In dentistry, the healthiest approach uses supra-gingival minimally invasive techniques. While traditional dental techniques remove a lot of healthy tooth structure (for crowns and filling) and usually leave restorations below the gum line (making the gums unhealthy), supra-gingival techniques allow for a more minimally invasive procedure, requiring less removal of tooth structure,and very importantly, staying above the gum line. The health of the tooth and gums are thus preserved with fewer complications, and the natural look of the tooth is still apparent, allowing for maximum natural beauty. Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz has been using and teaching these techniques for over 15 years and is a leader in the field.
