Periodontal surgical procedures are the procedures that address gum disease. Pocket reduction and grafting are two of the most common options. If you suffer from gingivitis or periodontitis, and non-surgical methods don't help to resolve it, periodontal surgery could rectify the problem.
Osseous surgery, also referred to as pocket depth reduction, is usually recommended when non-surgical treatments such as scaling and root planning have failed to recondition the impacted tissue around your teeth. Read more
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. An extraction can help stop the infection from spreading to surrounding teeth. When the infection spreads to the center of a tooth, we may first recommend a root canal to help save the tooth. A compromised immune system can increase your risk of infection. Sometimes, this increased risk may be reason enough to pull a tooth. Read more
A biopsy is a minor procedure in which Dr. Latypova removes a small sample of tissue for laboratory testing under a microscope. This tissue is typically harvested from an abnormal-looking area. The most common areas for a dental biopsy include the gums, the inner cheeks, and the tongue.
Soft tissue grafting is often a vital part of combating gum recession. You may experience gum recession due to periodontal disease, aging, trauma, crowded teeth, and over-brushing. The main goal of soft tissue grafting is to cover your exposed roots and improve your existing gum tissues. The procedure can help prevent additional recession and bone deterioration. Most sensitivity issues should also subside following your graft. Read more

A bone graft can improve the quality and quantity of your jawbone, allowing you to qualify for implant treatment. We may also recommend a bone graft to help you maintain a more youthful facial structure. Read more
The upper premolar and molar teeth’s roots can sometimes occupy the sinus cavity or be positioned very close to it. As a result, it is common for the bone loss associated with tooth loss to affect the sinus cavity. In circumstances such as these, before placing implants we will perform a sinus lift/augmentation.
