At Coastal Periodontics, we offer a wide range of services including:
Dental Extractions and Bone Grafting
When teeth are extracted or lost, the bone can decrease in size, making the option of dental implants impossible. Bone grafting preserves the bone and allows for implants to be placed in the future.
Dental Implant Therapy and Related Treatment
Patients lose teeth all the time due to various reasons. Lost teeth should be replaced and dental implants are often the best option. Sometimes, placement implants require additional surgeries prior to implant placement. Those surgeries can include: Ridge Augmentation, Socket Preservation, Sinus Augmentation
Treatment of Periodontal Disease
Periodontal Disease is a progression of Gingival Disease and often requires periodontal surgery in order to maintain teeth.
Treatment and Correction of ‘Gummy Smile’
Crown lengthening is a process that allows for more of a tooth structure to be visible. This can improve the esthetics of a patient’s smile and could also help with putting restorations on teeth.
Treatment of Gingival Disease
Gingival or “Gum” Disease is a process caused by plaque buildup and the body’s response to it. Treatment ranges from scaling and root planing to periodontal surgery.
Gum Recession Treatment
Gum recession can damage the esthetics of teeth and impair their functionality. Treatment is surgical grafting to restore the tissue and cover the tooth surface where recession has occurred.
Sedation allows for optimal and safe care to be provided while keeping patients comfortable. Various methods of sedation are offered: Moderate IV Sedation, Oral Sedation, Nitrous Oxide (“Laughing Gas”)
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The removal of wisdom teeth (or third molars) is one of the most common surgical procedures carried out in the US. The wisdom teeth grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through. Most people have 4 wisdom teeth (1 in each corner).
Our Cutting-Edge Technologies and Treatments Include:
Cone Beam Imaging
Conventional dental x-rays, such as the panorex, although helpful, have their limitations as they only display images in two dimensions. Technology has advanced over the years, and we can now visualize the bone and surrounding structures of your jaw in three-dimensions utilizing Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). This 3-D image helps show how much bone each patient has and eliminates any guesswork prior to placing dental implants. By increasing the accuracy and predictability of the surgery, cone beam imaging is just another way Coastal Periodontics strives to provide highly skilled care to our patients.
IV sedation is an effective method of reducing or eliminating pain associated with dental or periodontal procedures. IV sedation can also be an effective method to help patients who struggle with dental anxiety to overcome these fears and receive the care they need to enjoy good oral health.
In House Surgical Guides
As part of providing optimal patient care, Coastal Periodontics is proud to have the ability to design and fabricate surgical implant guides in house. Placing implants guided allows for more precise and accurate placement. This leads to better restorative outcomes and happier referring dentists and patients.
