Our Periodontic Services

Gum Grafting
Gum grafting involves taking a thin piece of healthy tissue from your mouth (or a donor) and placing it on any areas with gum recession. As it heals, it blends into your existing gums to prevent further tooth sensitivity, cavities from exposed root surfaces, and your tooth function.

Bone Grafting
Bone grafting is a transformational restorative procedure that restores your jawbone. Our team places a sample of bone material in the area of your jaw where you’ve lost bone. Then, it slowly begins to fuse with your existing jaw bone to replace missing structure, which can help you become a dental implant candidate.

Implant Placement
Missing teeth can severely affect your quality of life. Dental implants replicate the function of your natural tooth root to stimulate your jaw bone. This promotes the health and integrity of your jaw structure so you can get your oral health back.

Crown Lengthening
Crown lengthening allows us to remove excessive gum and bone tissue to create a more symmetrical proportion between your teeth and gums. This procedure reveals your natural teeth to bring out your best smile.
A woman smiling after a frenectomy
Your frenum is connected to your lip, cheek, or the floor of your mouth. A frenectomy is the removal or loosening of your frenum muscles so you can breathe better, speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
A woman after gingivectomy
Do you have teeth that look smaller or shorter than you’d like? A gingivectomy gently removes extra long or thick gum tissues to reveal a beautiful smile. In addition, it also promotes bone and gum health.

Surgical Extractions
If your tooth is severely damaged from gum disease, we can remove it. This will prevent further infection to your surrounding teeth and gum tissues.

Easy-going and friendly office. The hygienist - Rebecca was so sweet and very gentle. I loved how thorough the team was in gathering health, dental history, and periodontal assessment as well as making sure all my concerns were addressed. Dr. Amato was really nice and very conservative in his recommendations. Highly recommend this dental office.

FAQs About Periodontal Therapy

Find the answers to your top questions here.
  • What causes gum disease?

    Gum disease occurs when your gum tissues become infected.

    Bacteria are constantly forming on your teeth. Poor oral hygiene allows the bacteria to form plaque, which eventually hardens to tartar.

    Tartar build-up can spread below the gum line, which leads to more severe gum disease.

    Once this happens, it’s no longer reversible with at-home treatment. Seeking out a dental professional will prevent further infection.

    Our experts use advanced techniques and modern technology to get your gums and teeth healthy again.

  • What are the types of gum disease?

    There are two main types of gum disease:

    • Gingivitis
    • Periodontitis

    Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. Signs may include:

    • Red, swollen, or sensitive gums
    • Bad breath
    • Tartar buildup

    Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease. Symptoms include:

    • Chronic bad breath
    • Painful chewing when eating
    • Receding gum line
    • Loose teeth

    Reach out to us as soon as you notice any of these symptoms to stop gum disease from getting worse.

  • Are periodontal treatments painful?


    Our periodontics team will ensure you’re comfortable before, during, and after your procedures.

    If you’re still feeling anxious, we’re happy to offer sedation dentistry to alleviate any fear you may have.

    Keep in mind:

    Your teeth and gums may be tender after your treatment.

    We’ll provide you with aftercare instructions to reduce discomfort.

  • What can I do to prevent gum disease?

    Good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings will help treat gum disease in its early stages.

    This includes:

    • Brushing your teeth at least two times per day, for at least two minutes each time
    • Floss at least once a day
    • Visit your dentist for regular cleanings

    Advanced gum disease requires more extensive treatment.
