Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry focusing on the structures that support your teeth, primarily your gums and the bone beneath. At Dr. Kim Wagstafee Dental Clinic, we prioritize the health of your gums as much as we do your teeth, recognizing that a strong foundation is essential for a beautiful and functional smile.

Our Periodontal Services

At our clinic, we offer a comprehensive range of periodontal services designed to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease and other conditions affecting the supporting structures of your teeth. Our services include:

1. Periodontal Disease Prevention and Treatment
– Scaling and Root Planing: A deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line, helping to prevent and treat gum disease.
– Periodontal Maintenance: Regular follow-up cleanings and check-ups to maintain gum health and prevent the recurrence of periodontal disease.
– Antibiotic Therapy: Using localized antibiotics to control bacterial infections in the gums.

2. Surgical Periodontal Treatments
– Gum Grafting: A procedure to restore receding gums, covering exposed roots and reducing tooth sensitivity while improving the appearance of your smile.
– Crown Lengthening: A surgical procedure to expose more of the tooth structure, often necessary for restorative or cosmetic procedures.
– Pocket Reduction Surgery: Also known as flap surgery, this procedure reduces the depth of periodontal pockets, making them easier to clean and reducing the risk of severe gum disease.

3. Regenerative Procedures
– Bone Grafting: Restoring lost bone structure due to gum disease, trauma, or tooth loss, which is critical for supporting dental implants and maintaining facial aesthetics.
– Guided Tissue Regeneration: Encouraging the growth of new bone and tissue to replace areas damaged by periodontal disease.

4. Cosmetic Periodontal Procedures
– Gum Contouring: Reshaping the gum line to enhance the appearance of your smile, creating a more balanced and symmetrical look.
– Treatment for “Gummy Smile”: Addressing excessive gum tissue to reveal more of your natural teeth and improve your smile’s aesthetics.
