If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease or are suffering from the effects left by this progressive condition, you may be a good candidate for one of our advanced periodontal therapies and procedures. Our doctors have helped countless patients restore their gum health with soft tissue and dental bone graft procedures, sinus lift or augmentation, and tissue regeneration treatments. We will create a custom treatment plan to eradicate the active infection in the mouth and, if needed, rebuild bone or gum tissue.
We can rebuild and restore lost gum and bone tissue around damaged or missing teeth with a ridge augmentation or preservation procedure. Our doctors may need to perform a dental bone graft or gum graft to rebuild the contours of the smile.
If you do not have enough bone available in the upper jaw for dental implants, you may need to undergo a sinus lift, or sinus augmentation procedure. This procedure lifting the sinus floor up to a more favorable position. This stimulates natural bone growth in the space.
We can rebuild and restore lost gum and bone tissue around damaged or missing teeth with a ridge augmentation or preservation procedure. Drs. Lindsay and Christie may need to perform a dental bone graft or gum graft to rebuild the contours of the smile.
If you do not have enough bone available to support dental implants in the upper jaw, you may be a good candidate for a sinus lift, or sinus augmentation procedure. This involves repositioning the sinus to a more suitable position, or performing a dental bone graft on the floor of the sinus to create the bone volume necessary for implants.
Patients who have already had gum disease treatment may be put on a periodontal maintenance plan to maintain results. This typically involves thorough, below the gum cleanings at three to four month intervals so that we can help you preserve your periodontal health and monitor your progress.
This technique helps us repair some of the bone and soft tissue damage caused by gum disease. We can place donor gum tissue around damaged areas of the mouth or perform a dental bone graft to restore health to these sites.
Some patients with gum disease need to undergo a gingivectomy to restore their gum health. This procedure involves removing excess gum tissue and reshaping the gum line to reduce pocket depths around the teeth.
We perform this nonsurgical periodontal treatment on patients in the early stages of periodontal disease. It involves cleaning deep below the gums with ultrasonic tools and area specific instruments so the gums can reattach to the teeth for improved periodontal health.
Dr. Eastman incorporates the latest techniques in reconstructive periodontics, tissue engineering, dental implants placement and was among the first group of dentists in the U.S. trained in computer guided implant surgery.
