Why visit our Lawrenceville, NJ, periodontists, Dr. John Lu and Dr. Raul Figueroa, over a regular dentist? This question gets asked a lot. Unlike a general dentist, a periodontist specializes in preventing, diagnosing and managing your gum disease. We also can provide tooth loss patients with dental implants to replace their missing teeth. With a number of people suffering from gum disease and tooth loss, here are the many ways we can better your oral health:

Treating Gum Disease

Regardless of whether you suffer from a mild or more severe form of gum disease, our experts offer a variety of treatment options to cater to your needs. Root planing and scaling is a great non-surgical way to clean tartar from the teeth, gums and even tooth roots. This procedure is highly effective in managing mild to moderate forms of gum disease.

Those with more advanced forms of gum disease will most likely need to consider flap surgery, which can reduce and even eliminate the infected pockets that have formed within the gum tissue.

Dental Implants

If you are suffering from tooth loss but you are otherwise in picture-perfect health, then dental implants could be a great way to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants are metal structures that take the place of tooth roots. They are surgically placed into the jawbone where the biocompatible metal post fuses together with bone and tissue over time. An implant can hold a dental crown in place, or several implants can be placed into the jawbone to support partial or full dentures.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

While a healthy smile might mean beautiful teeth, it also means healthy, shapely gums. You would be surprised how much the appearance of your gums plays a role in the attractiveness of your smile. Whether gums are receding or you are dealing with a gummy-looking smile, our Lawrenceville gum specialists can reshape and even remove excess tissue to give you a more even smile.

Tooth Extractions

While preserving natural teeth is important, there are some situations in which the healthiest option is to actually remove a tooth altogether. From impacted wisdom teeth to severely decayed or broken teeth, there are a few scenarios in which we will recommend having the tooth removed. Decayed or damaged teeth can often be saved with less invasive methods, but, if you don’t seek treatment right away, then the tooth may no longer be viable when you do seek care.
