may be able to provide you with bone grafting surgery which will make your jawbone able to successfully withstand the oral surgery. Our periodontist will then be able to provide you with the dental implant roots, and make sure that they are surgically inserted in just the right, precise location in your jawbone. When you first come to our periodontal practice, our periodontist will want to give you a thorough oral exam and learned about your medical history to determine whether or not there are any factors that can affect you regarding the development of gum disease or other gum problems.
If it is determined that you have gum disease that is mild to moderate, our periodontist will be able to provide you with a scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will make sure that all plaque, bacteria, tarter, and food debris has been removed from the deep pockets that form between the teeth and gums. This treatment will help ensure that your gums will return to good health. Sometimes this treatment will need to be repeated to help ensure a full recovery for you gums. Other times our periodontist may recommend that this treatment is performed on a preventive basis to make sure that your gums stay healthy. Other types of treatment options that our periodontist also provides are: sinus augmentation; pocket elimination osseous surgery to eliminate deep pockets which cannot be treated with scaling and root planing treatments; crown lengthening surgery to improve the look of a “gummy” smile, or to make it possible for a tooth to receive a dental crown; soft-tissue grafting; and bone grafting.
