Bone Grafting

Patients who have teeth extracted or oral cysts removed may suffer from a degradation of the underlying jaw bone. Not only can this lead to a sunken facial appearance, but it can also make it more challenging to place dental implants. A bone graft is a simple surgery in which new bone cells can be grown, restoring your oral health and preparing you for additional procedures.

Sedation Dentistry

Patient comfort is one of our foremost priorities. To ensure your procedure is safe and painless, we are pleased to offer a range of sedation options. Depending on the nature of the procedure, we may recommend nitrous oxide, oral, or IV sedation. We hope access to these sedation options gives you peace of mind about your upcoming procedure.

Gum Recession Treatment

Many of our patients struggle with receding gums. Not only does this condition cause the teeth to appear longer, but it can also make you look older overall. Thankfully, there are a number of surgical and non-surgical interventions available to treat gum recession, with soft tissue grafting being the most common. Learn more about the options for addressing gum recession.

Bone Regeneration

In treating periodontal disease, our providers may notice significant bone loss. This can put you in danger of tooth loosening or even tooth loss. With prompt intervention, we can regenerate the bone, offering greater protection for the surrounding teeth. Membranes, bone grafts, and even tissue-stimulating proteins may be used to regenerate missing bone. Contact us for more information on bone regeneration in Charleston, SC.

Osseous Surgery

When you have severe periodontal disease, it can damage or degrade the bone tissue surrounding your teeth. Osseous surgery can help correct these deformities, reshaping your bone and protecting your teeth. This procedure involves a periodontist reshaping the bone and tooth and potentially performing a bone graft as well. To find out more about osseous surgery, contact Periodontal Associates at any time.
