Periodontal disease is a leading cause of tooth loss. That’s why Dr. Rob D’Orazio offers periodontal treatment to ensure the health of your smile. Whether you need osseous surgery to treat gum disease or gum grafting to restore your receding gums, the Dental Implant Institute provides exceptional periodontal care.
Osseous surgery is a traditional gum surgery that is effective in the fight against periodontal disease when all other methods have failed. Our doctor lifts the gum tissue away from the bone in order to clean and smooth the root surfaces. The gum tissue is then trimmed to reduce the size of the periodontal pocket and then stitched in place while the tissue heals.
Gum recession is an unfortunate consequence of periodontal disease. The gums erode and shrink down the length of the tooth, leaving teeth sensitive and your smile marred. Grafting is a gum surgery that transfers gum tissue from areas where you have ample amounts to areas where you have a scarcity. Donor tissue is sutured to cover an exposed tooth root and integrates with the existing tissue to deliver a beautifully restored gum line.
For those who need more extensive procedures or who suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. D’Orazio offers Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation. Sedation dentistry is a safe, effective method of relaxation that allows you to rest comfortably while we improve your smile.
