Sometimes teeth may need to be removed due to decay, disease, crowding or even a traumatic incident. If you feel you have a tooth that may need removed, our professionals at Westlake Periodontics can ensure that you receive the best care possible.
If you or your dentist notices gum recession, it is possible you may need a gum graft, which involves carefully placing small amounts of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists.
Treatment of Loose Teeth & Bite Problems
Loose teeth in adults can sometimes result from poor dental hygiene, advanced gum disease, a facial injury, teeth grinding and even pregnancy.
Cosmetic Gum Surgery
Cosmetic gum surgery is a dental treatment that involves surgically modifying gum tissue to improve the appearance of your smile. Excess gum tissue, gum recession and an uneven gum line are problems that usually can be treated.
Extractions and Bone Grafting
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure preformed using transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones in the jaw that anchors teeth, using one or more different bone grafting options.
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums, jaw or surrounding oral and facial structures. The recovery period post oral surgery is relatively quick, meaning you may be able to resume normal activities in about 2-3 days.
