What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is caused by bacteria in the gums. This disease creates inflammation in the gums that separates the gums from the teeth. The best way to stop the disease from progressing is to receive periodontal treatment services from Dr. Kazemi and her team.

 

Full-Arch Graftless Implant Solutions (Smile Transformation)

Dr. Kazemi, an award winning board certified periodontist, can help mold your smile into a transformation you like. A full mouth reconstruction replaces lower or upper tooth set with dental implants. Metal posts are placed on your gums where your natural teeth sit. Then, an abutment is placed on top. After, a permanent crown is placed on the top of the implants.

Gum Lifting, Gum Grafting, and Periodontal Plastic Surgery Services

If you are suffering from gum recessions and have sensitive teeth, gum lifting with or without gum grafting might be your treatment of choice. Gum lifting, grafting, or plastic surgery is a way to address receding gums. Dr. Kazemi does this by a minimally invasive approach that could treat all gingival recessions in a single visit.

 

Same-day Teeth Replacement, Replacement of Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth, we offer same-day tooth replacement. To replace a tooth, we will first clean out the socket of the natural tooth. Then we will place a dental implant. This implant is placed by first setting the titanium post in the socket. Next, the abutment is placed on top of the post. And finally, a porcelain crown is placed on top of the abutment. 

 

Saving Your Teeth (Regenerative Periodontal Surgery)

If you have periodontal disease, you may be at risk of losing a tooth. To prevent this, Dr. Kazemi can perform regenerative periodontal surgery. This surgery is a way to save your teeth from periodontal disease. This procedure is done when part of the bone underneath the tooth is damaged from periodontal disease. In this procedure, Dr. we use bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins to regenerate healthy bone.

Orthodontic Exposure of Impacted Teeth

Another way that the gums can affect the teeth is through impaction. When a tooth is impacted, it is under the gum line more than the teeth around it. To relieve this problem, we will perform orthodontic exposure of impacted teeth. This dental surgery will reveal the underlying tooth.
