Comprehensive Periodontal Care from an Experienced Team
If you are recovering from gum disease or have missing bone tissue, you may need to undergo a periodontal procedure to restore your oral and gum health. We treat patients with gum disease and those who may have lost bone or gum tissue from periodontal disease using some of the latest techniques in the industry. Dr. Bernie Dudzinski

may recommend a dental bone graft, gingivectomy and other periodontal procedures as part of your treatment plan.
If you are missing bone tissue and having jaw problems because of it, or we need more bone available to support dental implants, you may need to undergo a dental bone graft procedure. We perform autogenous, allograft, and xenograft procedures to restore facial contours after bone loss.
If a tooth is lost or removed and the bone or gums start to recede, you may need to undergo a ridge augmentation or preservation procedure to restore the natural contour of the gums. We perform both hard and soft tissue ridge augmentation and preservation procedures at our practice.
We may recommend periodontal maintenance therapy for patients who have been treated for gum disease and now need to maintain results from their treatment. This may involve a series of deep cleanings and using prescription-strength products to prevent the infection from returning.
If other periodontal therapies have not worked, we may recommend a gingivectomy to treat periodontal disease. This procedure involves removing and reshaping loose gum tissue to reduce pocket depth between the teeth. It is performed under local anesthesia and the gums heal completely within a few weeks.
Patients in the early stages of gum disease may benefit from scaling and root planing therapy that involves deep cleaning the teeth and gums. Once plaque and tartar have been removed, we smooth out the teeth with an ultrasonic tool so the gums can reattach to the teeth. This reduces pocket depth by up to three millimeters.
