Healthy Gums Mean Healthy Teeth
A periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. They are trained to perform a variety of procedures that can maintain and improve the health of the soft tissues in your mouth.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
When a tooth is lost, both bone and gum tissue compete for the defect space. The gum tissue generates quicker than bone, thus assuming the space. With a membrane placement we can keep the gum tissue from the space, while the bone regenerates.
Functional crown lengthening is performed to remove excess gum and bone tissue in order to place a crown. This allows the gum line to look natural and enhance your natural smile.
The human skull has several cavities or air spaces called sinuses. When the sinus is enlarged and intrudes on areas where we want to place dental implants, bone or bone growth stimulation material is placed into the sinus.
Flap surgery is a procedure where the gum flap is lifted away from the tooth. Diseased tissue and sometimes bone is removed. The rough surfaces of the tooth are then smoothed by root planing.
A gum lift or crown lengthening may be performed to create a more even gum line. Patients with a gummy smile can quickly and safely have unwanted tissue removed, thus exposing more tooth to shape a more attractive smile.
Root exposure resulting from gingival tissue recession may pose multiple problems for patients and a gum graft will restore the proper gum tissue structure around the tooth.
