Preventing Gum Disease with Our Periodontal Program
Almost 50% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease, but they don’t even know it. At Anchorage Midtown Dental, when we help our patients manage periodontal disease, we don’t just help them save their smiles — we also help protect their overall health. Periodontal disease can complicate chronic inflammatory conditions like heart disease and diabetes. It has even been linked to infertility.
Our practitioners are trained to assess your periodontal health by examining your teeth, gums, bite, and risk factors. If evidence of gum disease is present, you can trust that you are in good hands with our Board Certified Periodontist.
If you have active gum disease, our Board Certified Periodontist and helpful hygiene team will work with you to manage and even reverse the condition of your mouth.
Periodontics Services in Anchorage
We offer everything from minimally invasive periodontal therapy, to more advanced surgical procedures.
• Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning): Most patients’ gum disease can be managed with this treatment maintenance plan. Deep cleanings of the root surfaces smoothes them and removes plaque and tartar from periodontal pockets.
• Root Surface Debridement (RSD): A step further than root planing, root surface debridement focuses on controlling infection and re-establishing periodontal health.
• Pocket Reduction Procedure: If the pockets around your gums are too deep, we may recommend a pocket reduction procedure to clear the pockets of bacteria and help your gum tissue reattach to your teeth.
• Gum Graft Surgery: Gum graft surgery helps the soft tissue holding your teeth into place to naturally regenerate. It can help cover exposed tooth roots and correct the appearance of “long teeth.”
• Bone Regeneration: In advanced cases of gum disease, the jawbone may weaken over time. Natural bone regeneration (bone grafting) can help your jawbones regain bone density.
• Dental Crown Lengthening: Whether to cosmetically correct “gummy smiles” or to prepare for crown restoration, our clinic offers expert surgical gum procedures.
