There are many different types of periodontal surgeries that can be used to not only get your gums healthy again, but also to make your smile look more attractive, if needed. When a patient has gum disease they have deep pockets that have formed between their teeth and gums. These pockets become filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar which irritate the surrounding tissues and eventually cause bone loss and eventually tooth loss. If this problem cannot be corrected with a periodontal scaling and root planing non-surgical procedure, our patient may need to have some type of periodontal surgery to correct the problem. Periodontal surgery has been performed by our dentist who has saved thousands of teeth that patients thought they were sure to lose – until they came to our oral surgeon for periodontal surgery.

Dental implants are comprised of two main parts. There is the lower titanium route implant section, and the upper porcelain crown section. Our dentist will first surgically implant the lower titanium root into your jawbone. There is then a healing period during which time the dental implant will fuse to the jawbone, and the jawbone will completely heal. Once this is completed, our dentist will attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant that you received.
