Smile Confidently with Our Top-Quality Periodontal & Dental Implant Services in Winona, MN

Periodontal or gum disease is a prevalent condition impacting more than 50% of Americans. It usually begins with mild inflammation and occasional bleeding of the gums. Still, if not treated, it can worsen and lead to irreversible bone damage and eventually lead to tooth loss.

Chronic periodontal disease is distinct from other dental problems as it may not cause discomfort, making it hard to detect without regular dental checkups.

The use of laser therapy in dentistry has become increasingly popular among periodontists and patients alike. Medical practitioners have employed lasers for treating various medical conditions for several years, and now they are being utilized in dentistry to overcome the limitations of conventional dental procedures.

Laser dental therapy uses a highly focused beam of light energy that explicitly targets specific areas of dental tissue to carry out a range of periodontal procedures.

Dental implants provide a realistic solution for replacing missing teeth by utilizing a titanium post or screw inserted into the jawbone to function as the tooth root. 

An artificial tooth, or crown, is then positioned on top of the implant, providing a secure anchor that resembles a natural tooth in appearance and texture.

Due to their natural appearance and sensation, implants are the top choice for filling gaps caused by missing teeth, as advised by periodontists and patients.

The purpose of dental bone grafts is to replenish the volume and density of areas in the jaw that have experienced bone loss. They are a dependable remedy for regaining lost jawbone and establishing a secure base for implants and other restorative treatments.

Gum tissue protects teeth from harmful substances like bacteria and plaque. Gum recession weakens this defense, leaving teeth vulnerable to damage. Minor recession can be treated with oral care adjustments, but if it exceeds 2mm, Gum Tissue Grafting is required to restore proper gum tissue coverage.

Crown lengthening is a surgical method that repositions the gum line surrounding a tooth to expose more of its underlying structure. This procedure is necessary when a tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or lacks adequate height for restorative treatments such as a crown or bridge.

I was happy with my experience. Brittany did a very nice job of explaining different details and helping me. I was very impressed with her. Doctor Johnson also did a nice job of explaining details to an implant. the only negative was the length of the wait in the reception area.
