Our Periodontal Care Treatments and Services
Dr. White can help you ensure your gums remain in good condition and restore gum tissue that has been damaged by progressive periodontal disease (periodontitis).
Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing is the first step in treating early gum disease. Tartar that builds up under the gum line is a major cause of periodontitis.
Crown Lengthening removes excess gum tissue to allow proper placement of restorations like crowns and bridges.
Gum Contouring is similar to crown lengthening, but the excess tissue is removed to provide a more appealing gum line for patients with a “gummy smile.”
Gum Grafting transplants a portion of healthy soft tissue, often from the palate to treat severe gum recession, protect the tooth roots, and restore damaged gum tissue.
Pocket Irrigation thoroughly cleans debris from recessed gums. Pockets form when gums recede and attract bacteria and leftover food particles that can lead to infection and further damage.
Jawbone Preservation Procedures like root amputation and bone grafting can reduce bone-loss or prepare patients for dental implant placement.
Oral Cancer Exams consists of special screening techniques that can identify suspicious sores or spots in the soft-tissue of the mouth.
