Do you have chronic bad breath? Notice your gums are bleeding or irritated? You may be suffering from a common dental disease known as periodontal “gum” disease. Periodontal disease affects the gums, teeth and overall oral health, eventually leading to gum pockets, loose teeth, and even tooth loss.

Periodontal Treatments

  • Arestin – Arestin, also known as minocycline hydrochloride microspheres are an antibiotic treatment for periodontal disease. Arestin is a powder which is placed inside gum pockets following a deep cleaning. Gum pockets form as periodontal disease advances and lead to various complications.
  • Periodontal Splinting – As periodontal disease progresses, many patients experience tooth migration and shifting, ultimately teeth can even be lost. Periodontal splinting is a newer treatment option which attaches teeth together, creating a more stable and strong unit. This can prevent shifting, loosening, and even tooth loss.
  • Gum Surgery – As periodontal disease is neglected, pockets around the teeth in the gums often form which can lead to unstable teeth, teeth shifting, teeth loosening and even tooth loss. With osseous surgery, Seven Dental can reduce these pockets and help your gums properly re-attach and heal.
  • Scaling & Root Planing – As patients neglect their dental health, bacteria, plaque and tartar build-up on the teeth and under the gum line, causing irritation to the gums. Tooth scaling and root planing involve removing this buildup from the tooth surfaces and root surfaces, smoothing your teeth, allowing the gums to heal properly.
  • Tissue Grafting – There are a variety of reasons a patient may need tissue grafting, including periodontal gum disease, missing teeth, and even “gummy smiles.” At Seven Dental we provide soft tissue grafting, gum grafting, and bone grafting depending upon your needs.
