At Family Dental Service, we are proud to offer specialized periodontal care through our experienced periodontists. Periodontics focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums, jawbone, and connective tissues. Here’s what you need to know about our periodontal services:
Our periodontist provides comprehensive treatment for gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. This condition is caused by bacterial infection and inflammation of the gums, which, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and other oral health issues. Our periodontist will evaluate the severity of your gum disease and recommend appropriate treatments, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), antibiotic therapy, and, in advanced cases, periodontal surgery.
Dental implants are a popular and effective tooth replacement option. Our periodontist has extensive experience in the placement of dental implants. They will carefully evaluate your oral health, including the condition of your jawbone and gums, and create a personalized treatment plan for implant placement. Our periodontist will work closely with you throughout the process, ensuring the successful integration of the implant with your jawbone.
Gum grafting is a surgical procedure performed to treat gum recession, where the gum tissue pulls away from the tooth, exposing the tooth roots. Our periodontist can perform various types of gum grafting procedures, including connective tissue grafts and free gingival grafts, to restore gum tissue and improve both aesthetics and gum health.
Crown lengthening is a procedure performed to expose more of the tooth structure by reshaping or removing gum tissue and, in some cases, bone. This procedure is often done to facilitate dental restorations or improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile. Our periodontist can assess your specific needs and provide crown lengthening treatment as required.
Our periodontist also provides ongoing periodontal maintenance and monitoring for patients with a history of gum disease. Regular visits for periodontal maintenance involve professional deep cleaning, assessment of gum health, and preventive measures to keep gum disease under control.
