After treating gum disease, periodontal maintenance is often prescribed to help fight off bacterial growth and maintain the health of your mouth.
Scaling and Root Planing
The early stages of periodontal (gum) disease may be treated with scaling and root planing to prevent bacteria from growing and creating oral issues.
Laser Gum Surgery
Laser gum surgery can be performed for restorative or cosmetic reasons, such as to treat advanced stages of gum disease or to reduce a "gummy smile."
Perio Protect is a periodontal infection therapy that involves special trays that provide medication beneath the gums, treating the disease from home.
A gum graft may be needed if your gums are receding, typically as a result of gum disease, aggressive tooth brushing, bruxism, or misaligned teeth.
Bone grafting may be necessary to rebuild a weakened jawbone before it can support dental implants and your natural teeth.
Ridge preservation is often performed right after a tooth extraction in order to prepare the area for an implant without the need for a bone graft.
