Periodontics is the field of dentistry that that focuses on implant surgery, bone grafts, periodontal surgery, gum lifts, and treatment of gingivitis and periodontal disease (gum disease).
Conventional dental implantation is the process of replacing missing teeth or teeth that cannot be saved by conventional means. Implants range from single-tooth replacement to a complete upper and lower arch replacement.
Bone grafting, or bone “augmentation”, involves the insertion of synthetic filler bone to encourage growth of the natural bone around it.
A cosmetic lifting of the gum line of the front six teeth, known as a gum lift, is today carried out quickly and effectively using laser. This procedure is virtually painless, does not require stitches and produces relatively quick healing.
