Periodontal Surgery

Gum disease is treated by eliminating the gum pockets. During this surgery, the infected gum tissue is trimmed away and any defective bone areas can be grafted with particulate bone to fill the defects. Surgery is necessary when the tissue around your teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
