Comprehensive Periodontal Treatments

Full-service and specialized care for advanced gum disease, dental implants, and complex periodontal procedures.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal treatment involves procedures to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease, including scaling, root planing, and periodontal surgery.

Periodontal Pocket Reduction Surgery

Periodontal pocket reduction surgery involves folding back the gum tissue to remove bacteria and smooth damaged bone to reduce pocket depth and allow the gums to reattach to healthy bone.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Periodontal plastic surgery involves reshaping or reconstructing gum tissue and supporting structures to improve aesthetics and function, including procedures like gum grafts and crown lengthening.

Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation is a surgical procedure to rebuild the natural contour of the gums and jaw after tooth loss or bone deterioration, often in preparation for dental implants.

Bone Grafting / Ridge Modification

Bone grafting, or ridge modification, involves transplanting bone tissue to repair and rebuild bone in the jaw, providing a stable foundation for dental implants and improving bone structure after tooth loss or damage.

Sinus Graft / Lift

A sinus graft, or lift, is a surgical procedure that adds bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars to create a solid foundation for dental implants by lifting the sinus membrane.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth or bridges, providing a durable and natural-looking solution for missing teeth.
