Scaling & Root Planing

An effective gum disease treatment, scaling and root planing is a nonsurgical procedure that allows us to clean the teeth and gums, dramatically reducing periodontal pocket depth.

Gingivectomy

This periodontal procedure is utilized to remove gum tissue. Our dentists may recommend this treatment to remove gum tissue that has been infected by periodontal disease or to trim away excess gum tissue for patients who have a gummy smile.

Periodontal Maintenance

After gum disease treatment, it is necessary to schedule maintenance appointments to keep your gums healthy. The bacteria populations that cause gum disease are always present in the mouth and can be reduced and controlled with periodontal maintenance. Periodontal procedures are similar to deep cleanings and are performed at regular intervals, typically every three to four months.

Bone Grafting

Dental bone grafting is a method of replacing lost bone tissue with donor bone from another part of your mouth or from a tissue bank. Dental bone grafts are generally needed after tooth loss or before the placement of dental implants.

Ridge Augmentation & Preservation

When a tooth is lost, the bone at the site begins to deteriorate. The process occurs rapidly and can drastically alter the shape of your gum line when the bone underneath is gone. Gum tissue may sag over the empty tooth socket. Ridge augmentations are periodontal procedures that rebuild the contour with either soft tissue augmentation or dental bone grafting. When dental bone grafting is utilized preemptively, it is called ridge preservation. With this method, our Boise dentists place the grafting material at the time of extraction to preserve the shape of the gum line.
