Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Center for Advanced Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
If you have to have a tooth extracted, it is usually because it was damaged by an accident or an injury. Your tooth might also have to be removed because of tooth decay or gum disease. While tooth extraction was not seen as a big deal in the past, we see it differently now. We used to remove a tooth to save the rest from disease or decay. Now we know that we need to save teeth because of the damage an empty tooth socket can cause. If you leave an empty tooth socket, it can cause your jawbone to change and your teeth to start shifting.
We don’t want to leave an empty socket where your tooth used to be. Instead of an empty socket, we have restorative practices to help keep your jaw healthy and your remaining teeth healthy. We call one of the procedures we used to keep your jaw healthy a ridge augmentation. Let Center for Advanced Periodontics and Implant Dentistry tell you about ridge augmentation.
You may think that your smile isn’t as appealing as it could be because your gums overshadow your beautiful white teeth. Did you know we can reduce the size of your gums to let your teeth shine through? It’s called an aesthetic gum lift. Let Center for Advanced Periodontics and Implant Dentistry tell you all about aesthetic gum lifts, and how they can help your teeth shine their brightest.
Many people think about makeovers during this time of the year. If you’re thinking about having a makeover, why not start with your smile? There are a lot of different techniques Center for Advanced Periodontics and Implant Dentistry can use to give your smile a fresh look. Give us a few minutes to outline our smile makeover program for you.
If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, you may have a severe problem with your gums. You may have red, swollen, or bleeding gums. If you don’t get treatment for your gums, they may be receding. In fact, your gums may be receding so much, you may lose teeth, or suffer a massive infection. When you get the diagnosis of gum disease, you may worry that you will lose all of your teeth - but you need to know there are treatments we can do for your gums, even if they are damaged. We can work to restore your gums after we treat them for periodontal disease. One of the ways we can help your gums is through a gum graft. Give Center for Advanced Periodontics and Implant Dentistry a minute to tell you about gum grafts, and why they are so important.
