Patients with missing bone may need to undergo a bone graft. If you are getting dental implants and do not have enough bone tissue available to support the implant, Dr. Lewis will perform a bone graft to restore bone volume and ensure optimal implant placement. Bone grafting may be necessary after the damaging effects of gum disease.
If you have mild to moderate gum disease with deep pockets forming around the gums, you may be a good candidate for a scaling and root planing procedure. This is a nonsurgical periodontal disease treatment that can be performed under local anesthesia or nitrous oxide. It involves scraping away tartar and calculus buildup around the root of the tooth using special tools. We can then polish the surface of the tooth smooth so the gums heal and reattach to the tooth. This closes up the pockets and improves the overall health of the gums.
