TREATMENTS FOR PERIODONTAL DISEASES
Non-Surgical treatments: Scaling and Root Planing is a careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root (removing bacterial toxins). Tray Delivery Systems consist of a custom-fit tray made from the impressions of the patient’s mouth. Patients use the tray at home to deliver prescribed medications.
Soft Tissue (Gum) Graft Surgery can be used to cover the exposed roots or to develop gum tissues. A gum graft can reduce further recession and bone loss. This may reduce tooth sensitivity and improve esthetics of your smile.
Laser Treatment can be used to treat periodontal disease.
Regenerative Procedures (procedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue) can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.
Dental Crown Lengthening can be used to reshape excess gum and bone tissue. This can be done to one tooth or an entire gum line…exposing a natural, broad smile.
Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
Pocket Reduction can be used when have pockets that are too deep to clean with standard oral care. Reducing pocket depth help prevent the progression of disease.
