A RANGE OF UNCOMFORTABLE SYMPTOMS
Not sure what kind of treatment you need?
The Severity of Your Gum Disease
WILL DETERMINE THE TYPE OF TREATMENT YOU REQUIRE
Mild Gum Disease or Gingivitis
In its early stages, our doctors can use conservative methods to control infection and restore the health of your smile. For patients with gingivitis, we may recommend lifestyle changes, deep cleanings, and medication.
Moderate Gum Disease
Severe Gum Disease or Periodontitis
Wondering if you really need to see a periodontist?
A Specialist Can Ensure You Maintain
HEALTHY TEETH AND GUMS
A healthy smile begins with proper oral hygiene and routine cleanings. Occasionally, however, you may experience concerns, like gum disease or a receding gum line, that require more specialized care. While ignoring oral health issues can lead to tooth loss and even systemic effects, visiting a periodontist regularly can ensure that the health of your teeth and gums stays on track.

Scaling and Root Planing
Deep cleaning during the early stage of gum disease to remove plaque and calculus from the tooth and smooth the tooth surface to discourage further bacterial buildup.
Surgical removal of diseased gum tissue that has receded and created deep pockets around the teeth where plaque and calculus can collect and cause decay.
Removal of the small connective tissue, or frenulum, from the tongue, lips, or cheeks to improve speech and eating or halt gum recession and shifting teeth.
Laser Gum Therapy
Nearly pain-free and minimally-invasive procedure to treat gum disease by removing infected gum tissue and bacterial buildup along the tooth root.
Treatment for gum recession that takes gum tissue from the roof of the mouth or outside donor and sutures it over the exposed tooth roots.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Removal of soft tissue covering the tooth crown to reshape an unsymmetrical, misshapen, or “gummy smile” for functional purposes and cosmetic benefits.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique
A minimally-invasive alternative to gum grafting that repositions receded gums back over the exposed tooth roots to halt gum recession and improve oral health.
Pocket reduction surgery to treat gum disease that removes plaque and diseased tissue from around the tooth root and recontours the bone to encourage gum reattachment.
A minimally-invasive laser treatment to remove infection from the gums and bone surrounding a dental implant that may have failed due to disease.
Procedure to raise the sinus membrane and fill the created gap with new bone material to provide adequate jaw bone structure for the placement of a dental implant.
Bone grafting procedure that brings the contour of the jaw bone back to its original structure if bone has been lost due to a missing or extracted tooth.
