If you have missing teeth or fixed bridge work that you are unhappy with, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are the most natural replacement for missing teeth. We will work with your general dentist to achieve the best results possible.
Periodontal disease is an ongoing bacterial infection in the gums and bone around your teeth. This infection leads to inflammation under the gums, and if not treated can destroy bone around your teeth. 75% of all adult tooth loss is due to a periodontal infection.
Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Gum grafts can be used to help cover the roots and develop gum tissue support. This will give you a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health.
You may have wondered if anything could be done to show more tooth structure to improve a "gummy smile." Your teeth may actually be the proper length, but they're covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, our periodontist performs crown lengthening.
