Gum Surgery Treatments
Periodontal disease can cause a number of issues in the mouth, including gum recession, which can severely affect the natural appearance of the gums and mouth. At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy, we are the top provider of gum correction surgery in Los Angeles.
Through our aesthetic crown lengthening procedure, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky remove excess gum tissue that makes the teeth appear short and stubby and reshape the outline of the gums, giving your teeth a more symmetrical gum line.
For our Brentwood gum disease patients whose gums are receding, we offer a gum graft restorative treatment to correct unevenness and restore a natural gum line. In this popular procedure, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky either take a tissue sample from the roof of the mouth or create an artificial tissue. They then attach this sample to the problem areas to cover exposed roots and reduce further gum recession.
Periodontal disease can also lead to lost jawbone around your teeth, which can lead to sinus problems, missing teeth, and more. Our Brentwood periodontists offer a specialized procedure called bone grafting to reestablish lost jawbone.
Bone grafting is a procedure that replaces or augments the bone around the teeth. After an evaluation to determine the state of the underlying bone mass, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky implant the bone augmentation into which the patient’s own bone can grow.
After a bone graft is performed successfully, the jawbone is then ready for dental implant placement to remove any teeth lost due to periodontal disease.
Gaps formed by missing teeth can lead to periodontal disease or infections that can cause other health and aesthetic issues. Dental implants are a cosmetic and restorative procedure to replace teeth that are missing by implanting an artificial tooth root into the jaw that is then used to hold a replacement crown. Dental implants blend in with your existing teeth and require the same care.
As one of our most popular procedures, dental implants offer countless health and cosmetic benefits. Because dental implants are easier to brush and keep clean than partial or full dentures, it has become an effective permanent solution to replacing lost teeth.
