Periodontal Care Appointment
If your general dentist or hygienist finds symptoms of gingivitis or rapidly progressing periodontal disease they may recommend consultation with a periodontist like Periodontal Associates.
Cleanings & Prevention
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Root and Tissue Therapy
Periodontal gum pockets are full of bacteria. The waste products of the bacteria infect the roots of the teeth and the bone surrounding the teeth.
Curettage is performed to debride the infected gum tissue lining of the pocket and with the use of chemicals the area becomes sterilized for a short period of time.
Pocket Reduction Treatment
The most routine correction of pockets and bone defects caused by periodontal disease is pocket reduction therapy.
Bone Regeneration utilizes a membrane placed between the gum and a bone graft.
Gingival grafting is performed to create a strong collar of gum tissue to help prevent gum recession, bone deterioration and the eventual loss of the tooth or teeth.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue grafting is often necessary to combat gum recession.
