A periodontist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of problems that affect the gums and other supporting tissues of the teeth. If you want to keep your teeth for life — a completely reasonable goal in this day and age — you need to make sure the tissues that surround them are also healthy. Should gum problems arise, you may need periodontal therapy to restore diseased tissues to health. Learn more about Periodontal Disease & Therapy.

Treatment of Gum Disease

Treating gum disease starts with the removal of any plaque and hardened deposits (tartar or calculus) on the tooth root surfaces. This may be followed by other non-surgical treatments and/or periodontal surgery to remove diseased tissue and restore your mouth to the best possible health.

Implant Dentistry

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer the comfort and security of a permanent replacement that looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve the tooth-supporting bone in your jaw that deteriorates when even one tooth is lost.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

The gum tissue that surrounds and supports your teeth plays a big role in how appealing your smile will look. Excess gum tissue, gum recession, and an uneven gum line are all problems that can often be successfully treated surgically at the dental office. Learn more about Cosmetic Gum Surgery.

Gum Grafting

If gum recession is affecting your health or your appearance, a routine surgical procedure called gum grafting may help. It involves carefully placing a small amount of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists — typically recommended to prevent further gum recession or to help cover tooth root surfaces that have become exposed. Learn more about Gum Grafting.

Tooth Extractions

There are times when it is in your best interest to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons, including: damage or trauma to the tooth; extensive gum disease; extensive tooth decay; or overcrowding. Learn more about Tooth Extractions.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting, a minor in-office surgical procedure, is commonly used in dentistry to correct deficiencies in bone quantity and to build support for teeth or dental implants. Learn more about Bone Grafting.

BioHorizons logo.The success of tooth replacement with dental implants depends on a solid connection between the implant and your jaw. To maximize this connection, we use BioHorizons dental implants. Implants made by BioHorizons have a uniquely engineered thread design that allows them to achieve initial stability second to none. That enhanced stability allows you the opportunity to get new teeth the same day your implants are placed.

In addition, only BioHorizons implants have a proprietary technology called Laser-Lok at the gum line area, which is truly a remarkable innovation. Laser-Lok is a series of cell-sized microchannels that are precisely carved around the upper implant surface with a laser. While virtually all implants on the market have a roughened surface to promote attachment of bone cells, only Laser-Lok channels are optimally sized to attach both bone cells and gum cells. The stability this creates is unmatched and is thought to provide the best environment to resist future gum recession. Also, research has shown Laser-Lok to be more effective than other implant designs in reducing bone loss.

For more than 20 years, BioHorizons has been committed to providing the most comprehensive line of evidence-based, scientifically proven dental implants and tissue-regeneration products. Throughout the years, BioHorizons has consistently applied biomedical engineering to numerous product innovations and today is the proud owner of 24 unique patent awards. Numerous research studies have demonstrated their unparalleled success. That's why all BioHorizons implants carry a lifetime warranty.

Using BioHorizons dental implants, we have achieved the highest possible success rates with the fewest postoperative problems. That's why we invest in this particular implant system. Of course, to achieve the outcomes this system is capable of delivering, you need to take care of your implant teeth as directed. Remember: advanced technology, while highly desirable, is no substitute for regular checkups and dental cleanings.
