Do you suffer from persistent bad breath? Or from swollen or bleeding gums? Maybe you have loose teeth or mouth pain when chewing. These are all signs of gum disease that if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. The most advanced form of gum disease is periodontitis. It develops when bacteria and the toxins produced by the plaque bacteria invade below the gum line and infect tissue beneath the teeth, causing tissue damage that compromises the support of your teeth.
At the office of Lakeland Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, our skilled and experienced periodontist performs a range of procedures, including bone grafts to help halt the progression and treat the damage caused by gum disease. Bone graft procedures are often performed because dental implants rely on a sufficient amount of bone for their long-term stability and success. In addition to procedures that enable the proper placement of dental implants, periodontists also perform bone grafts to restore the natural contours of the soft and hard tissues, supporting cosmetically pleasing results of care for other types of dental work as well.
With advanced specialty training in all aspects of care related to the gums and supporting tissues around the teeth, our office can help you maintain optimal periodontal health. Our goal is to provide expert care while maximizing your comfort throughout every step in care. You can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands at our office. We provide precise and gentle care and are always on hand to address all your questions and concerns regarding treatment.
