See below to take a look at some of the periodontal services offered by our Thousand Oaks dentist:
Soft Tissue Graft
Soft tissue grafting is a cosmetic gum recession treatment to even out a patient’s gum line. Patients are able to cover exposed roots and reduce gum recession with the help of our Thousand Oaks dentist.
A bone graft must take place when patients need dental implants but have a low jaw bone density. There are four different types of bone grafts: Autogenous Bone Graft, Xenograft, Allograft, and Alloplastic Graft.
Periodontal bone regeneration allows for the lost bone and tissue to be regenerated and is used to combat any damage that may have resulted from periodontal disease.
Stem Cell Regeneration
Stem cell regeneration can be used to restore vital soft tissue (pulp) that was removed because of an infection. If a patient’s periodontal ligament was damaged or lost from periodontal disease, dental stem cell regeneration can be used to repair the site.
Sinus augmentation is a procedure in which the sinus must be lifted because the sinus floor is too close to the area where dental implants need to be placed. This procedure increases the maxillary bone height, which is found behind the cheekbones.
