The periodontal (gum) tissues are an important part of your oral health. Our experience and expertise in periodontics allows us to provide high-quality treatments you cannot find anywhere else!

Periodontal Regeneration

There is a good chance that you have heard the phrases "restorative" and "preventative" used when speaking about oral health. However, there is another area of dentistry focused on improving the overall health of your teeth and gums when they have been damaged by chronic conditions like gum disease. This third phase of dental care is called regenerative dentistry.

Gum Graft

Gum graft surgery may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that we surgically embed into the jawbone. Because the implant is placed underneath the gum tissue, it acts as the root component of a missing tooth.

Tooth Extraction

Periodontal disease is an infection that can spread to the innermost part of the tooth, resulting in significant pain and discomfort. We may recommend an extraction if the infection is so severe that the tooth is beyond repair. An extraction can stop the infection from spreading and endangering your surrounding teeth.

Surgical Treatment Options

Gum disease is a serious but treatable oral health condition that can be damaging to your teeth and gums. When detected early, it can be treated by non-invasive procedures that are both simple and not very time-consuming. However, more advanced gum disease may require surgical interventions.


A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that involves the removal of the lingual or labial frenum. We may recommend a frenectomy to improve the mobility of your tongue and allow for proper speech (removal of lingual frenum). Removing the labial frenum may be necessary to close the gap between the two front teeth.

Crown Lengthening

Some people are born with uneven gums or an excessive amount of gum tissue. This can create aesthetic issues with your smile. We may recommend crown lengthening to improve the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you a more beautiful smile!
