What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious infection that damages the soft tissue and bone supporting your teeth. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other health complications. Early detection and treatment are crucial to maintaining healthy gums and teeth.

Our Periodontal Treatments

  1. Periodontal Pocket Reduction Surgery

    • Also known as flap surgery, this procedure reduces the depth of periodontal pockets by folding back the gum tissue, removing bacteria, and smoothing damaged bone.

  2. Periodontal Plastic Surgery

    • These procedures, including gum grafts and crown lengthening, reshape or reconstruct gum tissue to improve aesthetics and function.

  3. Ridge Augmentation

    • Ridge augmentation rebuilds the natural contour of the gums and jaw after tooth loss or bone deterioration, often in preparation for dental implants.

  4. Bone Grafting / Ridge Modification

    • This procedure involves transplanting bone tissue to repair and rebuild the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for dental implants and improving bone structure.

  5. Sinus Graft / Lift

    • A sinus lift adds bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars, lifting the sinus membrane to create a solid foundation for dental implants.

  6. 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.
