We Offer an Extensive Range of Gum Treatments
Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice is reputed for its reliable and reasonably-priced surgical and non-surgical medical care for curing maladies of the gum. Some of the periodontal (gum) treatments that we offer are:
This is a surgical procedure which involves the use of fragments of bone or synthetic bone as a substitute for the bone destroyed by gum disease. The grafts help to restore stability to your teeth and promote regrowth of bone.
Guided Tissue Regeneration
This procedure is performed when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed. It helps to stimulate gum tissue and bone growth.
Painkillers are administered during the early stages of gum disease. Medication provides relief to patients and also helps in controlling the growth of bacteria.
Gummy smile correction
If your gums have swollen and cover too much tooth surface, our periodontist is able to remove the excess gum and reveal the healthy tooth beneath.
After your periodontal disease has healed, you may be left with unsightly pockets that once held accumulated plaque. Dr. Garcia is able to suture those pockets to reduce their size and prevent reinfection of the area.
Soft tissue graft
tissue graft will take tissue from a healthy area of the mouth and connect it to the receding gum line. This not only protects the tooth root, it improves an overly toothy smile.
