At BC Perio, we are dedicated to helping you restore your health when dealing with gum disease and other advanced oral threats. Our services include a variety of surgical treatments that can restore gum or bone lost to infection, lengthen broken crowns, and reduce the depth of pockets that develop around your teeth. By scheduling a consultation with our team, we can examine your oral structures to determine if you would benefit from any of these procedures.
At your Dallas, TX, periodontal treatment office, we are happy to answer any questions about our approach to restorative dentistry. If you have an active gum infection, toothache, or other dental damage, please call us today!
We recommend regenerative procedures when the bone supporting your teeth becomes destroyed. By implementing one of these treatments, we hope to reverse the damage and restore your lost bone and tissue. After folding back the gums, we can remove bacterial deposits to fully clean your smile. Depending on the nature of your damage, we select from bone grafts, tissue-stimulating proteins, or membranes to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. Our multiple options for tissue regeneration allow us to reduce pocket depth and repair bone caused by the advancement of gum disease. After receiving this treatment, paying strict attention to your oral hygiene and attending regular periodontal maintenance sessions can increase the chances of maintaining your natural teeth.
Soft Tissue Grafts
When inflammation causes your gum tissue to recede, you can experience painful sensitivity as the roots of your teeth become exposed. You may notice this whenever you enjoy hot, cold, or sugary drinks. To return the protection of your full gumline, we can perform a soft tissue graft that covers the exposed root. In addition to pain prevention, a soft tissue graft restores your appearance by removing that “long in the tooth” look that can cause you to look older. By returning the length of your gums, you also protect against the possibility of gum disease developing in pockets between your teeth. If we discover an infection already present, we could schedule a scaling and root planing procedure to help get your condition under control. While infection that reaches the bone becomes permanent, regular periodontal therapy can make it more manageable.
If tooth decay or physical injury destroys a significant portion of your smile, you may require a crown. But in instances where your remaining healthy material cannot support a restoration, we can perform a procedure to lengthen your crown. This procedure recontours your gumline and jawbone to safely secure your dental crown. By repairing the injury in question, we return stability to your bite while allowing you to retain your natural tooth.
