From routine cleanings and exams to periodontal surgery and dental implants, our periodontics team has the expertise and technology to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs. In this article, we'll explore some common periodontics services, what to expect during the process, and how we can help you achieve healthy gums and a beautiful smile.

Periodontal Cleanings

Periodontal cleanings are a crucial part of periodontics. Our periodontics team uses specialized tools and techniques to remove plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line, where regular cleanings can't reach. This helps prevent gum disease and promotes healthy gums and teeth. We recommend that you schedule a periodontal cleaning at least once every six months.

Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal surgery is a treatment for advanced gum disease. Our periodontics team uses advanced surgical techniques to remove infected gum tissue and restore the health and function of your gums. We also offer regenerative procedures that use growth factors and other materials to stimulate the growth of healthy gum tissue.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jawbone, serving as a stable foundation for a dental crown or bridge. Our periodontics team has extensive experience in dental implant surgery and can help you achieve a healthy, natural-looking smile.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves reshaping the gums to improve the appearance of your smile. Our periodontics team uses advanced laser technology to remove excess gum tissue and create a more proportionate and balanced gum line.

Preparing for Periodontics Services

Preparing for periodontics services involves several key steps, including discussing your medical history with our periodontics team, understanding the treatment process, and maintaining good oral hygiene. Our team of periodontics professionals will provide you with detailed instructions for preparing for your treatment to ensure a successful and comfortable experience.

Recovering from Periodontics Services

Recovering from periodontics services varies depending on the type and complexity of the treatment.

It's important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure a speedy and successful recovery.
