Our periodontal services stop the spread of gum disease and keep periodontitis under control. We also offer crown lengthening treatments to help those with “gummy smiles.”
Crown lengthening is usually an aesthetic treatment that removes some of your gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth. In some cases, it’s used to create space for a crown, filling, or other restoration. This treatment is perfect for anyone who feels their smile is too “gummy.”
This powerful treatment helps fight gum disease by cleaning out tartar and plaque beneath the gum line. Once we remove the harmful bacteria, we’ll smooth out your enamel to discourage any further buildup. If this treatment sounds scary, don’t worry! We’re happy to offer local anesthesia to numb the area.
It’s as cool as it sounds! We use high-tech laser technology to zap away periodontitis. This state-of-the-art treatment is a faster, more accurate treatment for periodontal disease than traditional procedures — Not to mention, you’ll recover much faster too.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), periodontal or gum disease is an infection that affects the tissues and bone that support your teeth. If left unchecked, it can have a massive impact on your dental health. Also called periodontitis, this dental condition is caused by plaque buildup on your teeth. If it stays on your teeth long enough, plaque can cause inflammation in your gums, which can eventually damage the bone and tissues that hold your teeth in place. Thankfully, however, there are a few stages to periodontitis. So if you catch it early enough, you can stop it before it causes irreversible damage.
