What Is Periodontics?

Periodontics focuses on gum health. While periodontal disease is dangerous and a leading cause of tooth loss, dentists can also perform periodontic procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Cosmetic periodontal procedures can help you build confidence in the way you look. No matter how your gums are currently shaped, we can re-contour them and give you a symmetrical, attractive appearance.

Procedures Offered 

Scaling and Root Planing

Dental Laser

Dr. Skoulas uses a dental laser to perform some cosmetic periodontal surgeries. The advantage of a dental laser is that it completes procedures quickly and comfortably while promoting faster healing.  It also can be used as a periodontal treatment in disinfecting the gums. 

Periodontal Splinting

Gummy Smile Repair (Gingivectomy)

Many patients feel that their gums cover too much of their teeth, giving them what is known as a "gummy" smile. Dr. Skoulas can expertly uncover the teeth and create an attractive result using minimally invasive techniques.

Gingival (Gum) Grafting

Gum grafts are commonly used to treat root exposure resulting from receded gum tissue. Tissue is removed from the roof of the mouth or from gum tissue near the tooth and stitched into the area needing gingival repair.

Crown Lengthening

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening often becomes necessary when a patient needs increased natural tooth surface area to attach a crown or another restoration. However, crown lengthening can also be cosmetic. Exposing more tooth surface can give patients a more symmetrical and beautiful smile. 

Gum Grafting

Implant Contouring

Dr. Skoulas can contour your gums around the implant socket site. Full and healthy gums around the socket site improve the restoration and provide a seamless look.  She can help in developing the gums to heal following implant surgeries so that your final restorations look natural.

Frequently Asked Questions About Periodontic Dentistry

Do cosmetic periodontal procedures improve oral health?
If you have an existing infection or inflammation in your gums, a gingivectomy can reverse it. Lasers make this procedure quick and efficient. There is limited healing time.
Are dental lasers safe?
A laser is a targeted light beam that is entirely safe in a dental setting. The dentist can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures like gingivectomy and crown lengthening with proper protective measures.
Why is contouring the socket site around an implant necessary?
If your tooth has been missing for an extended time, the gum tissue may have receded along with the bone. Re-contouring the gum in this area will create a natural setting for your new dental implant.
