Our Dental Specialties
Treating Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common gum infection, also known as a mild form of gingivitis. More severe forms of gum disease are considered periodontitis, which leads to serious health issues if left untreated. A patient could expect treatment to include a few visits, including scaling and deep cleaning. These treatments would be followed up by appointments every few months with one of our periodontists, consisting of periodontal maintenance cleanings and routine checkups. If the severity of the periodontal disease has reached a more severe level, the patient may require surgery. Surgery sometimes includes bone grafting, gum reconstruction, and debridement, to name a few.
Compared to conventional dentures and bridges, dental implants, are generally the best option for tooth replacement. Because they’re similar to natural teeth, dental implants offer patients a more attractive smile in a convenient package. If bone loss is an issue, dental implants are the only solution or treatment alternative where gum disease is an issue. Bone loss directly impacts the overall shape of a patient’s face because it affects the oral cavity.
When a tooth in bad health is extracted, our periodontist recommends placing bone grafts quickly. Thanks to modern technology, dental implants may be placed the same day – meaning less time spent without a tooth. A missing tooth may require minimally invasive sinus/ridge augmentations to provide a solid bone foundation. A better foundation produces more successful future implant therapies, reducing the risk of possible complications – affecting results.
