A periodontist is a dental professional who specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating gum disease, implant placement, bone grafting, and performing cosmetic gum procedures. Our talented team of experts can effectively manage and treat oral inflammation and periodontal disease. Dr. Ada Parra and Dr. Justin Craighead provide the latest methods in diagnosing and treating gum disease as well as offer state-of-the-art technology to improve your overall health. When patients want their treatment done right the first time, they come to us!
Periodontists often address the cosmetic aspects of gum disease as well as the infection itself. They are trained to treat very difficult cases of gum disease and those having complex health histories in addition to periodontal disease. We provide a variety of periodontal treatments, including:
We improve areas of low bone volume and make dental implant placement possible where bone loss has occurred.
Through this procedure, we remove and reshape excess gum tissue to reduce periodontal pocket depths, improving the health and appearance of the smile.
By placing barrier membranes, we can generate lost bone and gum tissue, enhancing the esthetics and function of your smile.
As an on-going program following gum disease treatment, periodontal maintenance visits help maintain gum and bone health and stop the progression of periodontal infection.
We restore the natural contours of your smile and preserve extraction sites for future restoration.
When an upper back tooth is lost, the sinus cavity can expand to fill up the empty space. A sinus lift or augmentation moves the sinus cavity away or adds bone volume to the sinus floor to allow for proper implant placement.
We care that you are in pain and will do everything we can to see you as soon as possible.
Finally get a good night’s sleep with our effective treatment for this common sleep disorder.
We can save your tooth even after it has been knocked out!
