Featured Periodontal Services
Dr. Plata offers many services to manage a variety of conditions related to dental implant placement and gum disease.
Laser periodontal therapy effectively treats gum disease. Using a laser, your periodontist can access and remove inflamed gum tissue around a tooth’s root, then remove tartar and plaque buildup.
We ensure the safety and effectiveness of dental implant procedures. This includes rebuilding jaw bone or gum tissue, surgically placing dental implants, and restoring failed implants.
Periodontal surgery treats damage caused by gum disease. By surgically removing tartar and bacteria, we can restore function and appearance of teeth, gums, and damaged bone.
Non-Surgical Treatment of Periodontitis
There are some cases of gingivitis that can be treated without surgery. Scaling and root planing, antibiotics, and improving oral hygiene can reverse gingivitis.
Crown lengthening can treat a gummy smile and increase the success rate of future restorations by removing excess gum tissue and bone to expose more of a tooth’s healthy surface.
Bone grafting treatment helps regenerate lost bone, creating a better foundation for dental implants and restoring bone that has deteriorated due to periodontitis.
Gum tissue grafting treats damage caused by periodontal disease. By placing a gum graft, we can regrow tissue, restore shape to the gum line, and prevent further gum recession.
LAPIP (Laser Assisted Peri-Implantitis Protocol)
If a dental implant has failed due to infection (peri-implantitis), we can use laser treatment to remove infected tissue around the implant while leaving healthy tissue intact to regenerate.
LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)
LANAP is one of the most successful ways of treating gum disease because it targets the source of inflammation without removing healthy tissue and eliminates the need for a scalpel or sutures.
