Root and Tissue Therapy

By disrupting the bacteria as well as smoothing the roots where the bacteria have been growing, and removing the irritants, we create the potential for healing, gum shrinkage, and reattachment of the gums to the teeth. This reduces the depth of the “pockets,” facilitates cleaning, and in turn reduces the extent of any surgery which may still be necessary.

While surgery is frequently needed after root planing, patients have less discomfort and less surgical involvement. By reducing the contaminants and the bacteria with scaling and root planing, there is also less chance of infection after surgery and healing is enhanced. Discomfort is minimal. Topical and local anesthetics and Nitrous oxide analgesia can be used for additional comfort.

    Had a graft done by Dr Verseman (probably misspelled) He was understanding and compassionate. The graft was successful and the after care was great. I just started doing regular cleanings here and am happy to be cleaned by Alison. Thanks Guys!!!

    I highly recommend Dr. Heller and everyone associated with Periodontal Associates. From the moment I walked in, through the entire several month process of receiving a dental implant, I was made to feel totally comfortable. As a somewhat nervous patient, this was so important to me! Every step of the process was explained to me and my questions were welcomed and answered. Dr. Heller is very personable, extremely competent, and thoughtful. I’m so grateful that I was referred to him, and I’m very happy with my implant.

    Let's be honest here - there is nothing fun about having gum surgery. However, the staff and Dr. Heller were as good as it gets with regard to my treatment....
