Gum Surgery in Oakland, CA
As one of Oakland’s leading general dentistry practices, we offer several types of different gum surgeries to help treat gum disease, recontour the shape of your smile, or fortify bone structure in your jaw. If you’ve been told that your smile could benefit from gum surgery and you’d like to learn how Franklin Dental Care can perform the procedure using the latest equipment and technologies, we invite you to make an appointment today for a consultation and treatment plan for any one of the following procedures.
This is a popular procedure for anyone who wants to remove unsightly gum tissue that is affecting the appearance of their smile, but it is also used to treat periodontal disease. If you look at yourself in the mirror and consider your smile to be “too gummy,” this is a procedure that can change that.
Treatment for Gum Disease
There are several types of procedures to treat periodontal disease. These include flap surgery (sometimes called pocket reduction surgery), soft tissue grafts, bone grafting, and guided tissue regeneration, to name a few.
Although they may sound invasive, our experienced dental surgeon will be as conservative as possible during the procedure to ensure the process is not only 100 percent effective in its treatment goals, but as minimally invasive as required to achieve that goal.
There may be times when your gum disease can be treated with a non-surgical option called scaling and root planing. Because we practice conservative dentistry here at Franklin Dental Care, our goal is to make sure that you have every option available to you.
Preventive Care is the Best Care
The practice of good oral hygiene can reduce the risk of a patient needing gum surgery in Oakland. By making an appointment today for a routine exam and professional dental cleaning, our staff will be able to assess your risk for gum disease, gum recession, or root exposure – three things that could be more expensive to treat if not caught early.
If you’ve been postponing your preventive dental appointment and worry that you’re at risk for gum disease, we invite you to make an appointment today. And if a lack of insurance has been preventing you from receiving the dental care, including gum surgery that you need, call our office now to learn about our no credit check financing option.
