Our doctor follows the philosophies of the Dawson Academy to perform a number of targeted procedures. Patients with gum disease can turn to Dr. TJ Imm for comprehensive care plans that rebuild, restore and treat soft tissues. We also perform bone grafting procedures to rebuild lost bone due to periodontal disease. Since we look at the whole mouth as a system, we may prepare a periodontal maintenance plan that includes a series of deep cleaning treatments and checkups.
Many patients experience some degree of bone loss with periodontal disease. If you have lost a significant amount of bone tissue, our doctor may recommend a bone graft before dental implants or to restore your jaw bone. We use specialized techniques to ensure optimal bone integration and regeneration. The bone graft is also an important part of the ridge augmentation procedure and may be combined with a soft tissue augmentation to rebuild deteriorating parts of the mouth.
We can treat mild to moderate cases of gum disease with this nonsurgical periodontal treatment. Many patients experience a two to three millimeter reduction in pocket depth after just one treatment and results are progressive as the gums continue to heal. Scaling and root planing involves using ultrasonic tools and instruments to clear away plaque and calculus. We can then polish the surface of the teeth. This allows the gums to heal and reattach to the tooth structure. We may schedule a series of periodontal maintenance treatment after scaling and root planing to help you maintain results.
