Platelet-Rich Fibrin Therapy

Recovery from oral surgery can sound stressful, but platelet-rich fibrin therapy eases this process. Utilizing the healing properties of your own blood, this treatment accelerates tissue regeneration and healing at the surgical site. It means less discomfort post-surgery and a quicker return to your normal life.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

This innovative procedure encourages your body to rebuild bone and tissue lost to periodontitis. By using a special membrane to guide the healing process, guided tissue regeneration ensures that your bone regrows properly and gives your teeth the strong foundation they need.

Gum Grafting

Receding gums can leave you with sensitive teeth and a smile you're not happy with. Gum grafting tackles this issue head-on. By transplanting healthy gum tissue to areas where recession has occurred, this treatment covers exposed roots, reduces sensitivity, and improves your smile's appearance. It's a crucial step in preventing further gum recession and potential tooth loss.

Osseous Surgery

By removing bacteria-heavy pockets and reshaping the bones supporting your teeth, osseous surgery can stop the disease's progression. This allows us to save your natural teeth and maintain your oral health.

LANAP® Laser Surgery

If you’re intimidated by the thought of gum surgery, LANAP® laser surgery offers a less invasive alternative. This modern technique specifically targets diseased tissue, leaving your healthy gums intact. It's known for its quick recovery time, meaning you can get back to your routine with minimal discomfort. LANAP® is also effective in regenerating healthy tissue to maintain a strong foundation for your teeth.

Gingivectomy

If you're dealing with persistent gum inflammation that just won't clear up with regular cleanings, a gingivectomy might be the solution. This procedure removes the infected gum tissue and reduces the depth of your gum pockets, making it easier for you to keep your teeth and gums clean. It's a direct way to address gum disease and can significantly improve the health and appearance of your gums.
