Do you need periodontic services? This specialized area of dental care focuses on providing a higher level of treatment for the gums and bones of the mouth. As periodontists, our team at Lovett Dental Kohrville works closely with each of our patients to treat your gums and prevent further damage.
Who Are Periodontists?
When you’re seeking periodontics, it is likely because your dentist has recommended more advanced treatment. Periodontists are licensed and board-certified professionals. The American Dental Association has specific educational requirements for those who work in this field. To obtain this licensing, dentists must complete their four years of dental school and then an additional two years or more for this type of specialized postgraduate training. This extensive training allows for periodontics to offer more complex procedures to improve oral health.
What Does Periodontics Cover?
The care and attention we provide is always specific to your needs. Periodontics generally offers more than a general dentist. This dentist can help you to manage and beat gingivitis, and if your condition worsens into more advanced periodontal disease, provide treatment to get rid of this infection and damage.
One of the main focuses of the care periodontists offer is gum disease treatment. We work with you to prevent any damage to your gums and bone structure. This work generally includes procedures such as the following:
- Scaling and root planning to remove an infection from the roots
- Periodontal pocket reduction to close up areas where buildup occurred.
- Gum recession and tissue grafting to pull back in the gums
- Crown lengthening
- Regenerative procedures including ridge augmentation
If you have any concerns with your oral health beyond what your dentist can offer, call our team for immediate support.
Dental Implants and Additional Procedures
In addition to these procedures, we can also provide you with dental implant placement. If you have had significant damage to your teeth or they have decayed over some time, you may want to consider the value of dental implants. A vital component of the work we do is helping to restore your smile. Dental implants are a more permanent fixture in your mouth than what traditional denture applications are. They can also be used to create bridges and crowns over missing teeth.
Periodontists are fully-licensed professionals. We offer comprehensive oral surgery procedures to meet most needs you may have. If you need more advanced care, allow our team to help you.
We recommend giving us a call if:
- Your dentist has recommended more advanced care
- You have gum disease including periodontal disease
- You’re considering dental implants instead of dentures
- You have teeth that are improperly shaped
- You need help with improving plaque buildup
When you come in to see our team, we will provide complete x-rays and examinations to determine what steps are necessary to improve your oral health. There are many opportunities available to help you reduce the infections and remove plaque buildup. So if a root canal treatment did not help, you have significant decay occurring, or you want more advanced treatment for your gum disease, do not wait to get it. Instead, call on our team to learn more about the services we can offer to you.
