For some, the thought of even the most conservative form of treatment for gum disease is frightening and we understand this. That is why we have arranged to have sedation available for dental procedures. Any dental treatment can be performed with sedation from a cleaning to a surgical procedure.
When teeth are lost due to gum diseases, fractures or large decay, they can often be replaced by dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium fixtures that are placed into the bone. Dental implants are made out of titanium because it has the unique quality of not being rejected by the body.
Sometimes people do not like their smile or the way their teeth look. In some situations, it is actually the position and/or contour of the gum that is the problem and not the teeth. In other cases, the ideal tooth form cannot be delivered by the dentist unless the gum is in proper health and relation to the teeth.
Sometimes after a part of the tooth has broken off or if there has been a lot of decay, the dentist may have to access areas of the tooth that are far below the gum line. When a crown (cap) is placed, there is an area called the margin, which is where the crown meets the tooth.
