Gum Disease Treatment
We provide comprehensive and effective gum disease treatment using advanced technology and minimally invasive procedures. We are able to save teeth that have developed even severe gum disease, and do everything possible to save them without having to resort to periodontal surgery.
Gum Recession Treatment
Gums can recede from their proper position around your teeth, exposing your teeth to further damage and decay and jeopardizing their long-term health. We use minimally invasive gum grafting procedures to restore your full gum line, preserve the health of your teeth and enhance the beauty of your smile.
Cosmetic Gum Treatment
Too much gum tissue covering your teeth can mar the beauty of your smile and make it harder to keep your teeth healthy. An uneven gum line around your teeth makes your smile lose symmetry. We use minimally invasive micro-instruments or dental lasers to remove excess gum tissue or reshape your gum line so your oral health is easier to maintain and your smile is symmetrical and esthetic.
Periodontal Bone Regeneration
Bone loss occurs around your teeth from gum disease and other causes. Adequate bone is needed to keep your teeth strongly anchored in position, to maintain the proper size and shape of your jaw and to support dental implants. Dr. Setya, Dr. Hirst, and Dr. Bergman expertly regenerate lost bone and build back your needed bone support with minimally invasive bone grafting procedures.
Dental Implant Options for Missing Teeth
Dental implants are the strongest and most lifelike tooth replacement option for missing teeth. A dental implant is a bio-compatible post inserted into the jawbone that acts as a replacement tooth root. Dental implants can support a single crown, a bridge or a denture. Implant -supported teeth look, feel and function just like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.
Dental Implant Services
Dr. Setya is a highly trained dental implant specialist and has placed thousands of implants. He holds many advanced certifications in dental implantology and is an international lecturer in advanced dental implant procedures. He expertly places dental implants and can give you new replacement teeth that are comfortable, totally natural-looking and fully functional.
All-on-4 ® New Teeth in a Day
Tired of wearing dentures that are loose, irritate your gums and don’t let you eat the foods you need? Are your teeth so worn down they all need to be replaced ? Dr. Setya can give you a set of implant-supported full-arch replacement teeth in one day. Your new teeth will have 90% of full biting and chewing power and will look and feel totally natural.
Dental Implant Cleanings
Dental implants need special tools and procedures to clean them correctly as they are not natural teeth. Our highly trained and experienced hygienists expertly clean your implants as part of your periodontal maintenance program and can teach you how to clean them effectively at home.
Treatment for Dental Implant Problems
We occasionally receive patients who have received implants in the past, and the implants have developed infection or complications. Dr. Setya uses advanced technology and minimally invasive effective treatments to save implants wherever possible.
Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings
Proper cleanings and maintenance care is vital after treatment to maintain your oral health. Our very experienced hygienists use the latest technology and provide gentle and thorough cleanings. They will also effectively teach you how to maintain your oral health at home to guarantee long-term health and stability.
Crown Lengthening for Increased Function
Sometimes teeth fail to erupt through the gums or descend to their proper position in the dental arch, requiring orthodontic treatment to correct. Cavities can also form under the gum line, and cannot be treated effectively unless the cavity is fully exposed. Dr. Setya gently removes the covering gum tissue and further exposes the tooth crown when needed for orthodontics or other corrective treatments.
Teeth need to be extracted under certain circumstances and our doctors make sure all extractions are comfortable. Dr. Setya, Dr. Hirst, and Dr. Bergman perform minimally invasive extractions using specially-designed instruments that gently remove the tooth with minimal or no damage to the surrounding gum and bone.
Oral Pathology Services
In every new patient exam our doctors perform a comprehensive oral tissue examination and check for any signs of diseased tissues, including signs of oral cancer. They can gently take samples of suspect tissues and send them for a full biopsy. They treat known non-threatening lesions themselves using a variety of possible procedures. They repeat these inspections periodically for you to ensure that your oral health is maintained and that any potential disease is caught early and treated.
Children and teens will sometimes need gum grafting for recessed gums, or periodontal treatments to assist orthodontics. Teenagers with fully developed jaws can also receive dental implants to replace missing permanent teeth. Dr. Setya provides gentle and comfortable care to children and teens needing periodontal treatments.
Comfort and Sedation options
Dr. Setya, Dr. Hirst, and Dr. Bergman make your comfort a top priority and provide numerous comfort and sedation options to make your treatments as easy on you and as pain-free as possible.
