Our board-certified periodontists provide a full range of periodontal procedures which have helped thousands of patients restore strong and healthy teeth.
The extensive experience of our skilled periodontists allows them to craft individualized treatment plans designed to improve the function, health, and aesthetics of your teeth. Services include bone grafting, gum lightening, periodontal maintenance, and treatment for gum disease, gummy smiles, and tooth fractures.
Crown Lengthening (for Gummy Smiles)
Do you have a “gummy” smile that makes you feel embarrassed when you smile, talk, or eat? Do you have teeth that need dental crowns, but they have too much gum tissue covering the tooth? Don’t worry! This is actually a fairly common problem and we have a solution for it.
Untreated periodontal disease is the main cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States because it can lead to bone destruction where the teeth attach. Your gums are an integral part of your oral health. Keeping them healthy will help keep tooth decay at bay and increase the likelihood of saving your teeth.
Our practice is committed to providing toxin-free alternatives in every treatment we perform, whether it’s treating periodontal (gum) disease, extracting fractured teeth, or restoring lost teeth. But beyond using “good for you” dental materials, our holistic approach is centered upon becoming familiar with your entire health picture and lifestyle.
Pocket Reduction Surgery
Osseous surgery involves the removal or recontouring of damaged bone around the tooth as well as the removal of gum tissue that has been affected by advanced periodontal disease. The goal is to eliminate bacteria, reduce gum pockets that can harbor bacteria, and smooth out the damaged bone.
Scaling and Root Planing
When bacterial plaque and tartar build up under your gums, the tissue that keeps your gums snuggly fitting around each tooth can be affected. This buildup causes your gums to separate from your teeth. Scaling and root planing, also known as “deep cleaning,” is the gold standard non-invasive treatment for chronic periodontitis.
