Periodontal services

Non-Surgical Periodontal Services:

Dental Cleanings (Prophylaxis): Regular dental cleanings are crucial in preventing and managing gum disease. Our skilled dental hygienists will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums, reducing the risk of infection.

Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning): For early stages of gum disease, we offer scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning procedure that removes bacteria and smooths the tooth’s root surface to promote gum healing.

Periodontal Maintenance: If you’ve had gum disease treatment, we’ll provide ongoing periodontal maintenance to ensure your gums stay healthy and prevent the recurrence of the disease.

Laser Therapy: We utilize advanced laser technology to treat gum disease effectively. Laser therapy can target and remove infected tissue while promoting the growth of healthy tissue.

Surgical Periodontal Services:

Gum Grafting: Gum recession can be caused by various factors, including gum disease or genetics. Gum grafting involves taking tissue from another area of your mouth or using donor tissue to cover exposed roots and improve the appearance and health of your gums.

Pocket Reduction Surgery: In advanced cases of gum disease, deep pockets can form around the teeth, making it difficult to clean properly. Pocket reduction surgery aims to reduce pocket depth and eliminate bacteria, preventing further damage to your gums and bone.

Bone Grafts: When there is insufficient bone to support dental implants or maintain tooth stability, bone grafting can augment the bone density and volume, creating a strong foundation for your teeth.

Soft Tissue Grafts: Soft tissue grafts, also known as gum grafts, are used to treat gum recession or enhance the appearance of your smile. We offer various types of soft tissue grafts, recommended during the consultation phase based on your specific needs. These may include:

Connective Tissue Graft: A common grafting technique that uses tissue from the roof of your mouth to cover exposed tooth roots.

Tunnel Graft (Tunneling): This minimally invasive approach involves creating a tunnel in the gum tissue to reposition it over exposed roots, promoting tissue regeneration.
