Glo Dental Studio | Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Periodontal plastic surgery is designed to restore form and function to the gum tissue, periodontal ligament and the bone that supports your teeth or an individual tooth. The real long-term goal of any periodontal surgery is to increase the life expectancy of the teeth and their usefulness.
Periodontal disease is diagnosed when gingival or gum tissue attachment to the teeth is abnormal and/or if we discover significant bone changes through x-rays. We will help determine the degree of periodontal disease by examining “pockets” between the gum and tooth and by thoroughly analyzing x-ray results.
We’ll review recommended treatment procedures once a conclusive periodontal disease diagnosis has been made, beginning with conservative behavioral changes and extending to periodontal plastic surgery.
We recommend that our patient’s schedule regular dental examinations that include preventative treatments to avoid periodontal disease and potential surgery. Schedule your appointment directly by clicking on the button in the section below.
