You Can Love Your Teeth and Gums, Even If You Have Periodontal Disease!
Need a Dental Bone Graft? You Have Many Options at Shawnee Dental!
Hearing that you need a dental bone graft can cause anxiety at first. However, there are many advanced dentistry processes that we use at Shawnee Dental to make sure that your dental bone graft experience is as smooth as possible.
Many patients require dental bone grafts to help preserve or augment the gum ridge that is visible, especially after a tooth has been removed or lost. Dental bone grafts are also useful in those with reduced bone density who want to proceed with dental implant surgery. Most of the bone grafts we handle at Shawnee Dental are in the lower jaw; in select cases, we also handle sinus lifts, which are bone grafts in the upper jaw.
Free Your Healthy Gums From Damaged Gums
When you have periodontal disease, your gums will start to become damaged. A gingivectomy is one of the methods that works to remove damaged gums and enable the healthy gums to do what they are supposed to do – protect your teeth. Gingivectomies are virtually pain-free thanks to the advanced equipment we use at Shawnee Dental, so there is no need to fear this common procedure!
Patients who are candidates for gingivectomy treatment may also want to talk with our doctors about guided tissue regeneration, a method that helps us prepare the gingiva – or gum tissues – to heal themselves.
