Periodontal Disease, or gum disease as it’s commonly known, is a disease that affects the structures around the teeth.
Gingival recession or the “receding gumline” is the retraction of the gumline down the tooth, leading to exposure of the root surface and loss of healthy support gingival tissues.
Crown Lengthening is the surgical access of the gum and bone supporting a tooth in order to create more tooth structure to facilitate planned restorative treatment, such as a crown or bridge.
Scaling and root planing, or a “deep cleaning,” is the process of removing bacterial plaque and tartar from the tooth surface extending under the gumline.
Periodontal flap surgery is the reflection of the gums away from the bone and teeth in order to treat gum disease around teeth and implants. This procedure results in reduction in pocketing and creates a stable foundation for longterm periodontal health and stability.
Soft tissue grafting is used to treat gingival recession or receding gums by augmenting the supporting gum tissue and repositioning the gumline to recover exposed roots.
Bone grafting procedures may be done in addition to periodontal flap surgery to regenerate bone lost due to gum disease around teeth and implants.
Dental implants are an excellent treatment option for ideal tooth replacement.
Aesthetic crown lengthening, or a “Smile Lift” to put it simply, is a periodontal procedure to alter the gumline in order to enhance the esthetics of your smile.
Dental implants may develop complications that require more advanced treatment for their long-term stability and success.
Oral mucositis is the chronic irritation of the gums resulting in an altered ability to eat, drink, and function normally.
In order to alleviate your anxiety about dental treatment, we offer multiple options for sedation including oral and intravenous methods.
In order to facilitate ideal orthodontic treatment outcomes, we work with local orthodontists to facilitate treatment.
