Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.

Periodontal Diseases

Periodontal diseases, also known as gum disease, are some of the most common infections in the United States. In fact, more than 75 percent of American adults over age 35 have some form of periodontal disease. In a recent survey, eight out of ten Americans believed they did not have periodontal disease, but seven out of ten exhibited one or more symptoms.

Cosmetic Crown Lengthening

If you show a lot of gum tissue when you smile and your teeth are short, you may be a candidate for Cosmetic Crown Lengthening. Your teeth may be the proper length, but they are hidden with excessive gum tissue. This “gummy smile” can be corrected by performing Cosmetic Crown Lengthening. This periodontal procedure is a careful reshaping of the tissue to expose the natural length of your tooth.

Prevention

Just like we practice healthy habits for our total body health, it is important to practice preventive dental care. Professional dental cleanings and checkups are an investment in your future dental health.
