We Can Improve the Health of Your Gums & Bone

We are committed to enhancing and maintaining your smile. That means keeping your teeth, gums, and bone healthy. Your gum tissue frames the teeth, protecting them from bacteria and decay while the bone supports your teeth, holding them in position. There are numerous treatments available to treat a wide variety of dental issues, and all of them can be performed in-house by our skilled team.

Scaling & Root Planning

Essentially a deep cleaning for periodontal disease sufferers, scaling and root planning removes bacteria and plaque from beneath the gum line to improve the health of your teeth and gums.

LANAP Laser Gum Therapy

During laser gum surgery, the fine tip of the PerioLase is slipped between your teeth and gums. The light emitted from the laser only affects bacteria and infected tissue, leaving healthy tissue, teeth, and bone unharmed. Because there are no sutures or incisions, recovery from laser surgery is faster and less painful than that of traditional dentistry.

Periodontal Maintenance

The bacteria that cause gum disease are always present in your mouth. The best way to prevent infection is to control the population with regular brushing, flossing, and cleanings. This is especially important after you have had treatment for periodontal disease. Our doctors recommend a periodontal maintenance cleaning every three to four months to ensure that your gums stay healthy and symptom-free. Periodontal maintenance visits help us periodically remove bacterial colonies and allow us to monitor your progress, providing early treatment, if necessary.

Bone Grafting

Periodontal disease often results in bone loss.

Healthy bone is essential for many reasons, including:

  • Supporting your teeth
  • Giving shape and structure to your face
  • Providing sufficient density for dental implant integration
  • Offering a solid foundation on which to rest your dentures

Many patients don’t realize that bone loss matters, even when you have dentures. Your dentures need a stable base for a secure, comfortable fit. Bone grafting can replace bone density by transferring bone from your chin to your jaw, for example. If you have bone loss and dentures, call our office to learn more about bone grafting procedures to improve your oral health.

Soft Tissue Grafting

An innovative gum grafting technique allows our Greenville NC dentistry team at Bowman, Padgett, and Associates the opportunity to restore your healthy gum lines with less trauma to your gingival tissue. We simply create a tunnel around the affected teeth, protect the root with antibiotic paste, and insert Alloderm grafting material into the tunnel. A special suturing and tacking method allow us to raise the entire gum line into an ideal position. Your gum tissue is then higher, healthier, and more attractive.
