The goal of all periodontal treatment is to create an environment around each tooth that you as the patient can keep clean on a daily basis. Here are some of the ways Periodontal Associates – The Dental Implant Team helps its patients achieve optimal oral health.

Dental Implants – Once you learn about dental implants, you will finally realize that there is a way to improve your quality of life. Even if you have lost just one tooth – whether it is a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself.

Periodontal Care Appointment – In the course of a regular dental check up, if your general dentist or hygienist finds symptoms of gingivitis or rapidly progressing periodontal disease they may recommend consultation with a periodontist like Periodontal Associates.

Cleanings & Prevention – A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Root and Tissue Therapy – Periodontal gum pockets are full of bacteria.  The waste products of the bacteria infect the roots of the teeth and the bone surrounding the teeth.

Gingival Curettage – Curettage is performed to debride the infected gum tissue lining of the pocket and with the use of chemicals the area becomes sterilized for a short period of time.

Pocket Reduction Treatment – The most routine correction of pockets and bone defects caused by periodontal disease is pocket reduction therapy. This procedure is utilized to reduce the pocket depths and return the tooth supporting bone to a normal, physiologic contour by removing the infection and bone deformities caused by the gum infection.

Bone Regeneration – Bone Regeneration utilizes a membrane placed between the gum and a bone graft.

Gum Grafting – Gingival grafting is performed to create a strong collar of gum tissue to help prevent gum recession, bone deterioration and the eventual loss of the tooth or teeth.

Soft Tissue Grafting – Soft tissue grafting is often necessary to combat gum recession.  Periodontal disease, trauma, aging, over brushing, and poor tooth positioning are the leading causes of gum recession which can lead to tooth-root exposure in severe cases.
