Periodontal Services Marlton NJ
At Periodontal Health Professionals we specialize in a wide variety of procedures designed to maintain or improve your periodontal tissues.
The periodontal (gum) tissues are an important part of your oral health. Our experience and expertise in periodontics allows us to provide high-quality treatments you cannot find anywhere else!
Many people experience bone deterioration after they lose a tooth. If you need dental implants, but have experienced bone deterioration, you may need a bone graft. The graft material will foster the growth of new bone healthy enough to support a dental implant.
Maintaining proper oral hygiene is more than a simple focus on brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily but also caring for your gums and keeping them healthy. Periodontal/Gum diseases can be quite serious and difficult to treat. If you want to encourage gum health and be certain you do not contract a gum infection, good gum hygiene and periodontal maintenance are the key, and we can help.
Gum grafting may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.
Some people are born with uneven gums or an excessive amount of gum tissue. This can create aesthetic issues with your smile. We may recommend gingival contouring to improve the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you a more beautiful smile!
Periodontal disease is an infection that can spread to the innermost part of the tooth, resulting in significant pain and discomfort. We may recommend an extraction if the infection is so severe that the tooth is beyond repair. An extraction can stop the infection from spreading and endangering your surrounding teeth.
A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that involves the removal of the lingual or labial frenum. We may recommend a frenectomy to improve the mobility of your tongue and allow for proper speech (removal of lingual frenum). Removing the labial frenum may be necessary to close the gap between the two front teeth.
The Chao Pinhole surgical technique has revolutionized treatment for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole made with a needle, we can move some of the underlying gum tissue, and slide it over the recessed area. The procedure does not require the use of scalpels and sutures, resulting in virtually no post-operative symptoms!
While healthy gums and strong teeth are vital to overall oral hygiene and oral cavity health, none of those are possible without jawbone health. Without the supportive structure, teeth and gums cannot remain healthy. Any patient having suffered a traumatic event to their face or jaw, or an infection, should be evaluated for treatment to assess the potential damage. When bone loss is detected, several treatment options are available. Regeneration involves the regrowth of lost bone tissue.
