PROCEDURES/TREATMENTS

DENTAL IMPLANTS

 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

PLASTIC SURGERY PROCEDURES

 

Periodontists are often considered the plastic surgeons of dentistry. If you are looking to improve your smile, a periodontist may be able to help.

LASER TREATMENTS

 

Lasers can be used to treat periodontal disease. Current controlled studies have shown that similar results have been found with the laser compared to specific other treatment options, including scaling and root planing alone. Scaling and root planing is a traditional non-surgical therapy used to treat periodontal diseases.

REGENERATIVE PROCEDURES

 

Procedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.

DENTAL CROWN  LENGTHENING

 

You may have asked us about procedures to improve a "gummy" smile because your teeth appear short. Your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they're covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, your periodontist performs a dental crown lengthening procedure.

NON SURGICAL PROCEDURES

 

Treatment guidelines stress that periodontal health should be achieved in the least invasive and most cost-effective manner. This is often accomplished through non-surgical periodontal treatment.

Non-surgical periodontal treatment does have its limitations. When it does not achieve periodontal health, surgery may be indicated to restore periodontal health.

GUM GRAFT SURGERIES

 

Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Gum graft surgery will repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss.

Gum grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. During gum graft surgery, your periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate or another donor source to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.

POCKET REDUCTION PROCEDURES

 

Your our bone and gum tissue should fit snugly around your teeth like a turtleneck around your neck. When you have periodontal disease, this supporting tissue and bone is destroyed, forming "pockets" around the teeth.

Over time, these pockets become deeper, providing a larger space for bacteria to live. As bacteria develop around the teeth, they can accumulate and advance under the gum tissue. These deep pockets collect even more bacteria, resulting in further bone and tissue loss. Eventually, if too much bone is lost, the teeth will need to be extracted.

HAPPY CLIENTS

I have been going to Dr Mathews for several years and my teeth have never been in better shape. She is always prompt, efficient courteous, and professional. Her staff is also very friendly.

Libby Roney in Westport CT – Jan 23, 2018

Dr. Mathews is very talented and positive. She made me feel comfortable and in control of my situation. The results after my procedure have been fantastic and just as expected according to her descriptions. Thank you for your good work! I feel renewed!

SAM in Westport, CT – Oct 07, 2016

Dr. Mathews was warm and reassuring to allay my concerns about the implant procedure. She has a gentle touch I appreciate. She and her assistant made sure I was comfortable throughout. She is gracious and positive, and I came to feel very safe in her care. It was surprising to me that it was done more smoothly than I expected. I had a marvelous recovery, so pain-free I required no pain medication, although she had given me a prescription in case I needed it, which I never filled. Brava!
