Dental ImplantsPeriodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the care and treatment of the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. A periodontist is a dentist that specializes in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontists also place dental implants and can cosmetically enhance your smile through periodontal procedures.
CrownsBefore placing a crown, your general dentist must first prepare your tooth. Sometimes there is not enough tooth structure above the gum line to accept a new crown. "Crown lengthening" provides more tooth structure for your crown. This ensures a more stable crown with less resulting gum irritation.

Teeth CleaningThe upper level of infection in the "pockets" around your teeth can be removed using specialized instruments. This procedure is called, "Scaling and Root Planing", "Phase One Treatment" or " Initial Therapy". It is done under local anesthesia and is quite different from the routine dental cleaning that is traditionally performed in the dentist's office.
Dental ExaminationDuring maintenance therapy, you will receive an oral examination and accumulations of new infection will be removed. If necessary, your teeth are polished and your bite is checked. Your dentist or periodontist will recommend a schedule that is best tailored to protect your periodontal health. Depending upon the severity of your original periodontal problem, you may need to receive maintenance therapy every 3 months or more often.

Ridge AugmentationSometimes after an extraction, there will be a sunken spot or concave appearance in your gum line. This looks unsightly and can also jeopardize the appearance of a bridge that goes over the area. Grafting material can be inserted under the gum to fill out this depression.
Bone GraftingYour jawbone is needed to support your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, severe periodontal infection dissolves parts of your jawbone. This bone loss can eventually lead to the loss of your teeth. The first step of treatment is to remove the periodontal disease, which halts the bone loss. Then we repair the damage that has occurred. In many cases, various bone grafting techniques can be used to re-grow some of the lost jawbone.
