Our Periodontal Surgery Procedures
A healthy smile has teeth firmly surrounded by gum tissue and supported by strong jawbones. However, gum disease damages these tissues and bones, creating spaces around your teeth called “pockets.”
Larger pockets allow for bacteria and food particles to easily collect inside them. This can lead to more damage.
Eventually, your tissues and bones begin to degrade. You may experience tooth loss or extreme damage to your teeth.
Pocket reduction surgery goes into your gum tissues to remove bacteria and hardened plaque and tartar.
Any tissue that’s too damaged may be removed. Then, your healthy tissue will be sewn back into place. Your gums will reattach to your teeth once the tooth root is free of bacteria and plaque.
We use a local anesthetic and offer sedation options for a virtually pain-free procedure.
Regeneration restores your bone and tissues supporting teeth that have been lost due to severe periodontal disease.
During this procedure, we’ll remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar under your gum tissue.
Depending on the severity of your situation, a bone graft may be recommended to stimulate new bone growth. Or, we may apply a special protein to stimulate tissue growth to repair the surrounding areas.
Gum recession is a common symptom of gum disease. This means your gum tissues recede and expose more of your tooth roots.
This causes your teeth to appear longer and creates higher sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. In addition, it’ll expose your tooth to an increased risk of damage from bacteria, plaque, and tartar.
With a soft tissue graft, we’ll remove a small amount of tissue from either the top of your mouth or another viable source. Then, we’ll sew it to the gum area to protect exposed roots and restore your gum line to its original location.
This can be used for cosmetic purposes too for those who don’t like how their gums look when they smile.
The clinic is beautiful & very clean. The staff is pleasant & professional. Yen at the front desk remembered my request for a sooner appointment & called me as soon as one became available. I appreciate their dedication & professionalism.
