Periodontal Care

Have a Smile That Lasts For a Lifetime

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, has been linked to a variety of health issues, so proper periodontal care plays an essential role in your oral and overall health. Dr. Chetan Patil offers outstanding periodontal treatments at Periodontal Associates, to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy smile. Our comprehensive treatment options including deep cleanings, gum lifts, and dental implant placement to replace missing teeth.

Benefits of professional periodontal care

Improved Oral Health

Periodontal disease can cause bleeding, inflammation, and bad breath. By treating the root cause of periodontal issues, you can enjoy a healthier smile.

Restored Aesthetics

Deep gum pockets and gum recession can make your gum line look unhealthy or uneven. With periodontal treatment, your smile can become more balanced.

Better Overall Health

Your oral health is your overall health. Periodontal disease has been linked to serious health issues, so addressing your oral health can also boost your overall wellness.

We use a variety of sedation options and other methods to ensure that your periodontal treatment is as relaxing as possible. We provide topical anesthetics, nitrous oxide, and intravenous (IV) sedation. Dr. Patil also uses the DentalVibe system at our Englewood office, the Wand®, and the Anutra buffering system for more comfortable injections.

Gum Surgery
Gum surgery is a treatment for moderate and advanced gum disease.
Osseous Surgery
Necessary for the pockets around the teeth that have not responded to other periodontal treatments.
Gingivectomy
A surgical procedure performed to remove excess gum tissue, which encourages healthy gums and prevents periodontal infection.
Gum Grafts
Restore and protect teeth from the effects of gum recession such as cavities, sensitivity, and even tooth loss.
Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
Also known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, this minimally invasive treatment involves no incisions or sutures.
Extractions
Tooth extraction may be necessary if damage, decay, or infection is too severe to be healed.
Root Amputations
Root amputations can save a partially damaged tooth from being completely removed.
Exposure of Canine Teeth
Canine teeth which have not erupted may require exposure to be guided to the correct position in the mouth.
Crown Lengthening
Also called gum contouring, this procedure can make the teeth appear more symmetrical and correct the “gummy” smile.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution for patients missing one, some, or all of their teeth.
Bone Grafting And Sinus Lifts
These treatments provide sufficient bone volume so more patients can enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
Laser Periodontics
Unlike traditional surgical methods, lasers do not involve any incisions or stitches and significantly reduce bleeding.

If you experience symptoms of gum disease, visiting a periodontist is the best way to get the care you need.
