Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office.

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist. For more information about cosmetic periodontal surgery or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office.


An excessively large frenum can prevent the teeth from coming together resulting in a gap between the front teeth. A malpositioned frenum can also cause gum recession.If pulling is seen or the frenum is too large to allow the teeth to come together, the frenum is surgically released from the gum with a Frenectomy . Often a Gingival Graft is added to re-establish an adequate amount of attached gingiva.

Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Advancements in gum laser therapy allow many periodontal procedures to be performed with no bleeding, no suturing, and negligible postoperative discomfort.Lasers are of particular valuefor performing frenectomies and procedures involving cosmetic reshaping of gum tissue to enhance the smile.

Bone Regeneration

Guided tissue bone regeneration regenerates the previously lost gum and bone tissue.Some techniques utilize membranes that are inserted over the bone defects.
