Frequently Asked Questions About Periodontics in Sutton Place
What exactly does a periodontist do?
A periodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on the health of the supporting structures of the teeth, including treating gum disease and providing dental implant services.
What are examples of periodontics?
Periodontics includes gum disease treatment, implant dentistry, bone grafting, gum grafting, crown lengthening, and more.
Can gum disease be fixed?
Gum disease can be treated, and in many cases, the damage it causes can be fixed through procedures like gum and bone grafting. When addressed early, treatment may be able to reverse gum disease before it causes permanent damage.
Is it better to get a bridge or implant?
Every patient is unique, but generally speaking, dental implants are preferable to traditional bridges, as bridges only replace the visible portion of a missing tooth. Dental implants replace the root and the crown.
Is dental bone grafting painful?
No, dental bone grafting is not painful. We use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort, and sedation is available if needed. After your procedure, you may have some tenderness at the site.
