Maintaining healthy gums is critical to optimal oral health because these connective tissues, along with the jaw bone, help to support your teeth and prevent tooth damage and loss. If you have periodontal health issues, you may need to undergo advanced treatments, such as scaling and root planing therapy or a gum graft. Our Mountain View Family Dental dentists serve patients with a full range of periodontal treatments.

Walk out of our office with a beautiful new smile! If you have missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw, you may be a good candidate for Teeth-in-a-Day. This innovative procedure involves removing problematic teeth and replacing missing teeth with dental implants. We then place a denture on top of the implants to create a beautiful new smile.
If you are missing multiple teeth in the upper or lower jaw, you may be a good candidate for traditional dentures in CO. Dentures can be removed for easy cleaning and are an affordable option for tooth replacement. We can determine whether you are a good candidate for full or partial dentures during your consultation.
Keep your gums healthy and prevent recurring damage after gum disease treatment with periodontal maintenance visits. This is a form of ongoing therapy that involves thorough below-the-gum cleanings and periodontal examinations to ensure the gums stay free of infection.
Scaling And Root Planing
Prevent irreversible damage to the gums and supporting bone with early treatment of gum disease. Your risk of tooth loss and gum damage is greatly reduced when we can perform scaling and root planing therapy during the initial stage of periodontal disease. This nonsurgical periodontal treatment is performed under local anesthesia by one of our gentle, experienced hygienists.
If you have lost bone tissue because of gum disease or tooth loss, we may perform a bone graft using the autogenous, allograft or xenograft technique. Bone grafting can restore the jaw bone and improve overall jaw function by supporting natural teeth or dental implants.
Patients with extensive bone loss in the upper molar areas of the jaw may need to undergo a sinus augmentation, also known as a sinus lift, before receiving dental implants. This procedure provides the bone height and density necessary to support an implant.
If gum disease causes gum recession, or you have worn away gum tissue due to parafunctional habits, we may recommend a gum graft to restore the gum line. The gum graft may be performed using donor tissue samples or synthetic materials.
