LANAP® Laser Treatment

Right now there are millions of Americans living with gum disease; however, only a small percentage of this number will seek professional treatment. Research has linked gum disease to a variety of health complications including diabetes, heart disease, pancreatic cancer, and low birth weight.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are now the generally preferred tooth replacement treatment over partial dentures and fixed bridges. Traditional treatments either rest on your gums, as with removable dentures, or rely upon adjacent teeth to serve as anchors for fixed bridges. Dental implants are placed into the jaw bone, offering a highly successful, long-term replacement option.

Bone Grafting

Bone loss occurs in the jawbone when one or more teeth are missing as a result of trauma, decay, or injury.  The jawbone depends on stimulation from the teeth and roots and will deteriorate without this stimulation.  Over time, the bone can deteriorate to a point where bone mass is insufficient for placing dental implants.

Gingivectomy

Periodontal disease can cause a loosening of the gum line as bacteria eat away at healthy gum tissue. This can create deep, loose pockets in the gums around the teeth. A gingivectomy is performed to remove the loose, diseased gum tissue. The procedure reduces the pocket depth between the teeth and gums and helps return the gums to health.

Guided Tissue Bone Regeneration

Untreated periodontal disease can cause bone loss in the jawbone and around the teeth. This bone loss can greatly increase your chances for tooth loss because without the support of the surrounding bone, teeth become loose and susceptible to decay. Once a tooth has been lost, bone loss will occur in the jawbone as the body resorbs the bone.

Gum Grafting

Gum recession is one of the most noticeable symptoms of gum disease. As gums recede, they expose an increasing amount of the tooth crown and root. For a patient suffering from gum disease, gum recession can affect one or many teeth, causing a wide range of symptoms including sensitivity, inflammation of gum tissue, root exposure, and cavities.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetics that replace missing or extracted teeth. Once fitted for a denture, it takes time to adjust to the way it feels and functions, as dentures differ greatly from your natural teeth.  Aesthetically, modern denture designs look considerably more natural and realistic than older models.

Osseous Surgery

Also called flap surgery, osseous surgery is performed on periodontal pockets that have resisted all other attempted treatments and continue to worsen. Osseous surgery creates a clean environment around the tooth, promoting tooth and periodontal health.

Periodontal Maintenance
Periodontal maintenance refers to on-going treatment and prevention of gum disease and bone and tissue loss. Maintenance is often recommended for patients who have shown increased susceptibility to periodontal disease or have moderate to severe gum disease in their dental histories. Periodontal maintenance includes regular visits to your periodontist to more closely monitor your gum health and prevent future...

Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Periodontal plastic surgery refers to cosmetic procedures performed on the gums. These procedures alter and enhance your gums for a healthier, more attractive smile. Esthetic crown lengthening gives patients who are displeased or embarrassed by having a “gummy” smile an opportunity to reshape their gum line.

Ridge Augmentation

After a tooth is extracted, the jawbone where the tooth was will begin to resorb, or recede, over time. The height and width of the socket where the tooth was will begin to shrink and may form an indentation in the gums or jawbone. Ridge augmentation is performed to recreate the natural contour of the gums or jawbone.

Ridge Preservation (Socket Preservation)

After a tooth is extracted or lost, the bone in the socket and jawbone will begin to gradually recede. Without the tooth to hold the socket in place, the bone will resorb into the body and the socket will collapse. The jawbone, without the tooth to stimulate it, will also being to resorb and shrink.

Scaling and Root Planing

Brushing and flossing daily, along with having regular check-ups, are essential practices to good dental care. In cases where gum disease has set in, a process called scaling and root planing may be done to fix the problem. This process is fairly simple, and if good hygiene is resumed after the procedure, it should be able to stop the spread of the disease.

Sedation
People often fear regular dental visits and routine treatments. This fear can stem from negative experiences in childhood, painful treatments in adulthood, or can sometimes be influenced by stereotypes portrayed in TV and movies. Fear and anxiety can cause individuals to avoid seeking treatment for serious dental issues, putting them at greater risk for complications.

Sinus Lift (Sinus Augmentation)

After a tooth is lost or extracted, the bone in the jaw naturally begins to shrink, or resorb, over time. The sinuses, without the bone to hold them in place, will begin to expand and occupy the empty space where the bone used to be. With insufficient bone to place a dental implant, bone grafting is necessary.

Tooth Extraction

A variety of issues including decay, injury, or orthodontics can require that a tooth be extracted. Extractions are relatively standard procedures in most dental practices.  The difficulty of extraction varies with each patient and tooth. Local anesthesia numbs the extraction site and surrounding area to eliminate pain during the procedure.
