What is Supragingival (Healthy) Dentistry?
All procedures in medicine and dentistry can be provided with a variety of approaches, some aggressive and invasive, and 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 fillings) and usually leave restorations below the gum line (causing unhealthy gums), 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 teeth and gums are thus preserved with fewer complications, less post-operative sensitivity for the patient, gums that look and feel less inflamed, and longer lasting results than traditional dentistry. 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.
The benefits of supra-gingival dental procedures are:
- Healthier gums, because a major effort is placed to avoid placing materials below the gum, unlike traditional dentistry
- Less chances of root canals, because less tooth is cut away
- Usually less discomfort during and after treatment because it is minimally invasive
- More beautiful results because the natural beauty is left to shine through
