Periodontal Dentistry

Our minimally-invasive, modern high-tech and holistic gum disease treatments really work!

Are You Worried About Gum Disease?

Periodontal Dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament.

Damage to your gums, including infections and periodontal disease, can be very serious. There are direct links between gum disease and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, as well as other ailments throughout the body.
Over 50% of Americans are estimated to suffer from some form of periodontal disease and go untreated.

Dental Implants

If you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to periodontal disease or injury, Dentro can help. Our dental implants are placed using an advanced 3D x-ray system and advanced computer fabrication technology.

Most implant systems have five basic steps for placement of each implant:
01. Soft tissue reflection
An incision is made over the crest of bone, splitting the thicker attached gingiva roughly in half so that the final implant will have a thick band of tissue around it.
02. Drilling at high speed
After reflecting the soft tissue, and using a surgical guide or stent as necessary, pilot holes are placed with precision drills at highly regulated speed to prevent burning or pressure necrosis of the bone.

03. Drilling at low speed
The pilot hole is expanded by using progressively wider drills (typically between three and seven successive drilling steps, depending on implant width and length).
04. Placement of the implant
The implant screw is placed and can be self-tapping, otherwise the prepared site is tapped with an implant analog.
05. Tissue adaptation
The gingiva is adapted around the entire implant to provide a thick band of healthy tissue around the healing abutment.
