Years ago, a physician who suspected heart disease in you probably did not refer you to a gum specialist. Times have changed. The past years have seen increasing links between oral health and body health.
Visiting a dentist is as necessary as consulting a cardiologist for your heart health. We do tend to ignore our oral care because we feel it is not as crucial as our kidney, heart, liver. Remember, by doing so, you are playing with your health.

Diagnosis of dental and oral problems: What to expect?
Your dentist should be able to diagnose most of the dental and oral problems during a dental exam, where your teeth, mouth, throat, tongue, cheeks, jaw and neck are thoroughly checked.
Dentists use various tools and instruments to look or scrape at your teeth to move further with the diagnosis. You might be asked to get dental X-rays of your mouth to get an image of each of your teeth. A tool called a probe is also used to measure your gum pockets and identify whether you have gum disease or receding gums.
In case, any abnormal lumps, lesions or growths in your mouth is found, your dentist will perform a gum biopsy. A piece of tissue removed from the growth or lump will be examined under a microscope to check for cancerous cells. If oral cancer is suspected, further imaging tests, such as X-ray, MRI scan, CT scan, endoscopy may be ordered to see if cancer has spread.

In more serious cases of periodontal disease, performing oral surgeries may be necessary. So, always count on the best dental treatment hospital for your needs.
The surgeon makes a small cut in the gum, lifts a section of the tissue and removes the tartar and bacteria present underneath the gums.
The bone grafting procedure is performed when the bone surrounding the root of your tooth is damaged due to gum diseases. A damaged bone is replaced with a graft made from either your own bone or a synthetic one.
Soft tissue grafts
In this procedure, the dentist takes a small piece of tissue from your mouth or uses donor tissue to attach it to the areas of your gums that are missing.
Tooth extraction is the last resort when there is no way of saving the tooth with a root canal or other surgery.
