Procedures Overview

At Periodontal Associates, we are committed to helping our patients enjoy long-lasting oral health and hygiene. To accomplish this goal, we spend plenty of time getting to know each patient, evaluating their periodontal needs, and walking them through potential treatment options. Our providers have the experience and the training necessary to pair each patient with the most effective remedy for their oral health concerns… and we do it all in a warm, welcoming, and friendly practice setting.

The best way to learn more about potential periodontal treatments is to join us in Charleston, SC for a one-on-one consultation. Contact Periodontal Associates to schedule your appointment.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease can be caused by any number of factors, but the most common is plaque buildup. Periodontal Associates can offer treatments ranging from scaling and root planing, laser therapy and periodontal surgery.

Dental Implants

Patients can lose their teeth due to breakage, decay, or dental neglect. Lost teeth need to be replaced sooner rather than later, and dental implants represent one of the most comfortable, secure options.


Periodontal Associates is one of Charleston’s leaders in state-of-the-art dental implants. For many patients, the All-on-4 method represents the most convenient way to restore multiple lost teeth.

Bone Grafting

Tooth loss can cause the deterioration of surrounding bone tissue, making it impossible to get dental implants. The remedy is bone grafting, a simple surgery that allows for new bone formation in the jaw.

Sedation Dentistry

At Periodontal Associates, we not only aim to provide optimal clinical outcomes, but we also want to keep our patients safe and comfortable throughout. As such, we proudly offer a range of sedation options.

Gum Recession Treatment

Gum recession can impede the esthetics as well as the functionality of your teeth. Our providers can help you restore tissue via surgical grafting processes.

Bone Regeneration

Moderate to severe periodontal disease can result in the loss of bone. Our providers can regenerate the bone in that area in order to protect your existing teeth.

Osseous Surgery

Periodontal disease can lead to defects in the bone around your teeth. Osseous surgery will reshape the bone around the teeth to eliminate these defects and allow easier cleansability.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a process that allows for more of the tooth structure to be exposed; this can improve the esthetics of your smile and potentially help with prosthetic restoration.

Scaling & Root Planing

of the most effective, non-surgical ways to treat gum disease before it becomes too advanced.

CBCT Imaging

Robust 3D imaging helps our providers see the full picture, knowing how best to tackle any issues with your teeth, bone and gums. Our practice boasts state-of-the-art imaging equipment.

LANAP Laser Treatments

Laser treatments can be used to target and destroy bacterial buildup deep within the pockets of the gums, offering an option to alleviate periodontal disease.

Wilckodontics (PAOO)

Dr. Murphy is a certified provider of the Wilckodontics treatment, a procedure used to decrease the amount of time spent in braces while increasing the bone density of areas surrounding the teeth.
