Periodontal Services

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is one of the common dental problems. Left untreated, periodontal disease can cause serious damage including tooth loss. That is why our team at Casey Family Dental offer periodontal services to promote immediate treatment. Our specialists perform both non-surgical and surgical techniques that can prevent and reverse the effects of gum disease.

Scaling and Root Planing

This non-surgical treatment method is conducted to remove buildups of plaque, tartar and toxins that have accumulated above and below the gum line. The scaling process uses special tools to access and remove plaque from the deep spaces that cannot be reached with brushing. Then, root planing smooths out any rough spots on the root surfaces in order to prevent future buildup. This treatment is effective in stopping gum disease and helping the gums heal.

Dental Crown Lengthening

One of the symptoms of a Periodontal disease is a “gummy” smile giving you the appearance that teeth are too small, but in reality, it is due to swollen, inflamed gums. We can solve this problem through a dental crown lengthening procedure. Dental crown lengthening is a technique for reshaping excess gum tissue to expose more of the natural teeth. The procedure will improve the appearance of your teeth as well as help to keep your gums healthy.

Gingivectomy

Gingivectomy is a dental surgery that is sometimes required in the case of severe gum disease. It involves removing and reshaping loose, infected gum tissue to get rid of the gaps and pockets that may increase the risk of other complications developing.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment for periodontal disease utilizes a special dental laser that can access and remove swollen gum tissue that is present around the tooth’s root. Once the infected tissues have been removed, our specialists will also remove plaque build up, and smooth out the rough spots to prevent the further occurrence of infection. After the laser treatment, the gum line will start to regenerate and reattach back to the teeth. Many of our patients at Casey Family Dental prefer this type of treatment because it reduces pain and recovery time.

Pocket Reduction Surgery

When periodontal pockets become too deep to clean, a periodontal pocket reduction procedure is sometimes necessary. This involves folding back the gum tissue and removing disease-causing bacteria. The tissue will then be secured into place.

Bone Grafting

When the jawbone experiences deterioration, a bone grafting procedure can be used to restore its structure. This procedure works by supplementing the damaged jawbone with special proteins and bone-like materials. This encourages new bone growth which will strengthen the jawbone over time.

Our Happy Patients

"I am always greeted promptly in a friendly manner as I enter the office. The staff person who will provide my dental services never keeps me waiting. My personal comfort is the first order of business in the dental chair. An explanation of what is being done and why is readily available. And the doctor of dentistry is readily available and willing to describe plans of treatment as necessary. And the mantra accompanying procedures is "We don't want you to experience any pain or discomfort."

"They are awesome...from the receptionist all the way to Dr. Casey!"

"I had Dr. Casey fix a chipped tooth of mine a few months ago. He was very personable and easy to talk with. He did a great job on my tooth and the cost was very reasonable. I would definitely refer people over to him again and I will work with him in the future."
