Bone grafting is a procedure that is used to replace lost bone tissue in the jaw. This may be necessary if you have suffered from periodontal disease, which can cause bone loss and damage to the supporting structures of the teeth.
The bone grafting process involves taking bone tissue from another part of the body or using synthetic bone material to rebuild the damaged area of the jaw. This procedure can help to restore the strength and stability of the jaw, allowing for the successful placement of dental implants.
Guided Bone & Tissue Regeneration
Guided bone and tissue regeneration is a technique that is used to encourage the regrowth of bone and gum tissue in areas where it has been lost. This may be necessary after tooth extraction or due to periodontal disease.
The process involves placing a special membrane over the damaged area, which helps to guide the growth of new bone and tissue. This technique can help to restore the natural contour and shape of the gums, as well as provide a stable foundation for dental restorations.
Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that is used to restore the health and appearance of the gums. This may be necessary if you have suffered from gum recession, which can be caused by periodontal disease, aggressive brushing, or other factors. Gum recession can lead to a number of problems, including sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, increased risk of tooth decay, and an unsightly appearance of the gums.
The gum grafting procedure involves taking tissue from another part of the mouth, such as the palate, and grafting it onto the affected area of the gums. It may take several weeks for the graft to fully heal and for the gums to regain their original form, but patients will enjoy the result with minimized teeth sensitivity and a more symmetrical gum line.
Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
Cosmetic periodontal surgery is a range of procedures that are used to enhance the appearance of the gums and teeth. This may include gum reshaping, crown lengthening, and other techniques that can help to improve the symmetry and balance of the smile. Our experienced periodontists can work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that will address your specific needs and goals.
Pre-prosthetic surgery involves a number of procedures that are used to prepare the mouth for the placement of dental prosthetics, such as dentures or dental implants. This may involve bone grafting, gum grafting, or other techniques that can help to provide a stable foundation for the prosthetic device. Our team of experienced periodontists can work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help to ensure the success of your dental prosthetic.
