Gum Disease & Periodontics Treatment
Think Bleeding and sensitive gums: Gum disease can sneak up on people because the early stages often are not accompanied by pain. The earliest signs of inflammation of gums include bleeding, sensitivity and can progress to bone loss. This bone loss can be accompanied by one or more loose teeth, and may require surgery if left untreated. It is important to address Periodontal disease very early !
Numerous studies have linked periodontal disease to additional issues: stroke, diabetes and heart problems. Routine dentist visits and good dental hygiene habits are excellent ways to help avert this disease which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.Deep Cleaning or Periodontal treatment Removing plaque and tartar along below the gum line are part of your dental deep cleaning. Unlike regular dental cleaning, deep cleaning is very extensive and industrious. Special techniques and instruments are used to clean bacteria and their by products from roots of teeth and below the gums
Braces mean a beautiful smile and results in improved self esteem. But braces also help prevent and alleviate long-term dental problems. Crowded or crooked teeth are difficult to clean and maintain – this can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. Altered jaw alignment and misaligned teeth can cause abnormal wear of your teeth, difficult to chew efficiently, and can cause excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports your teeth. Braces can make adjustments which achieve a better smile while also make it easier to floss and maintain oral health.

Cosmetic Dentistry/Smile Makeover
Composite (Tooth-colored) Fillings
Quickly becoming treatment of choice to replace missing teeth, dental implants are titanium or highly bio-compatible materials that replace missing teeth. They can replace single or multiple teeth or can be used to anchor dentures to the jaw bones.
When teeth are missing, it can have a domino effect. Surrounding and opposing teeth can move into those gaps, and alter the normal relationship of jaw and biting surfaces. It becomes costlier and harder to bring the chewing ability back to normal. Dental implants are one of the best options to replace those missing teeth as soon as tooth loss occurs.
Bone grafts are recommended to replace lost bone during/after tooth removal to achieve optimal results. This prepares the tooth site to receive implants, and give ideal contour to get bridges and partials. Bone grafts delay future bone loss under dentures and improve fit of dentures. Reduction in quality and quantity of bone can compromise functional and aesthetic outcomes for implants and other procedures – such as bridges or dentures. We will discuss your options with you to make the best decision.
Restorative Dentistry is about getting your teeth restored back to how they should be. This is a big part of what we do.

Tooth Extractions and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Tooth extractions are performed when the tooth is no longer salvageable example deep decay, loose teeth, fractures, for orthodontic reasons or in case of infections.
In addition to atraumatic extractions , we also offer PRP that allows patients to take advantage of the body’s natural capacity for healing, but at a greatly accelerated rate. During the body’s healing process, it sends different cell types, including platelets to the site of trauma to initiate healing. With PRP, we concentrate platelets in a sample of your blood. PRP is then applied to the surgical wound, providing the area with extra platelets to stimulate more tissue growth. This helps healing to occur much faster, reducing your risk for infections and other complications
ROUTINE PREVENTATIVE DENTAL CARE
Proper preventative dental care now can prevent future dental problems. Practicing good preventive oral health translates to better whole body health .Screenings:
At every appointment, as a part of your exam, you will be screened for not just gum and tooth health, also for oral cancers and sleep apnea.Exams:
Examinations are a window into one’s oral and overall health. When your mouth is healthy, there is a good chance the rest of your body is also healthy. The American Dental Association recommends regular dental visits to maintain optimal oral health. Six months is a general guideline that most dental patients are recommended to follow, yet there can be exceptions for more or less frequent visits to help assist you in maintaining top oral health.Preventative Professional Teeth Cleaning:
This treatment involves polishing the teeth to control bacteria both on the teeth and just beneath the gum line. A prophy is typically performed twice per year, or every six months, to maintain healthy gums
