Surgical Periodontal Treatment

Surgical Periodontal TreatmentPeriodontists are able to offer a range of complex surgical periodontal treatments, some of which provide cosmetic effects while others can prepare the mouth for dental implants or will repair the damage caused by periodontal disease. If you need teeth extracting then we can gently remove them while preserving as much of the bony socket as possible, as this is particularly important if you require dental implants…

Tooth Extraction

Although your permanent teeth are designed to last a lifetime there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be required. Often a tooth will be too badly damaged to be repaired, perhaps through trauma or decay…

Esthetic Crown Lengthening

Are your teeth a bit shorter than you’d like? This is a common problem and can make a smile appear ‘gummy.’ Although it might seem as if the teeth are shorter than normal, in many cases they will be the correct length but are simply covered up with too much gum tissue…

Osseous Surgery (Gum, Pocket, Flap Reduction)

If you have gum pockets that haven’t responded to other treatments then we may recommend osseous surgery. This is necessary in order to create an environment that will be easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of infection and further destruction of the tissues surrounding your teeth…

Sinus Lift Surgery

Sinus lift surgery is a procedure to add more bone to your upper jaw around the region of molars and premolars. You may also hear this procedure called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added in between your upper jaw and your sinuses which are located on either side of your nose. In order to make room for the graft, the sinus membrane has to be ‘lifted’ out of the way, creating a gap which can then be filled with a bone graft…

Bone Grafting, Tissue Regeneration

In the past, treatment for periodontal disease may have saved teeth, but could result in the exposure of tooth roots. This is because the aim of periodontal treatment is to reduce the deep gum pockets that develop around teeth and which can allow harmful bacteria to thrive…

Ridge Augmentation

We might suggest a ridge augmentation after tooth extraction and before dental implants are inserted. A ridge augmentation helps to replace lost bone and will recreate the natural contours of the jawbone, providing more pleasing results once implant surgery is completed…

Occlusal & Bite Adjustment

When you close your teeth together they should all bite evenly and at the same time, ideally without any tooth touching before the others. If you don’t have an even bite this can place additional stress on your teeth, the bone supporting them and even your jaw joints and facial muscles…
