Periodontal Disease: If the periodontal disease has advanced, more extensive treatment will be required to restore the mouth, teeth, and gums to a healthy condition. If you are concerned about the treatment and/or prevention of periodontal disease, be sure to make an appointment with our Pasadena periodontist, Dr. Sanchita Mehra.

Periodontal Disease >>

Gum Recession: Receding gums are an indication of serious gum disease. As the gums recede, the tooth roots are revealed. The roots of the teeth are very susceptible to decay, and if the gums are receding, it is critical that the condition is treated rapidly.

Gum Grafting: Advanced periodontics has brought new treatments in gum restoration, including gum grafting. If your gums have receded to the point in which the roots have been exposed, gum grafting may be part of your treatment plan.

Gum Grafting >>

Bone Grafting: Gum disease can eventually lead to loss of bone in the jaw. Bone grafting is a technique that restores jaw bone volume and encourages natural bone growth.

Crown Lengthening: For some patients, a crown lengthening procedure will be part of a custom-tailored treatment plan developed to resolve a dental problem. This procedure is performed to improve gum tissue health.

Scaling & Root Planing: It may be necessary for a patient to have scaling and root planing as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. This could be advised as a preventative treatment to ward off gum disease, or used to help treat a case of periodontal disease.

Pinhole Tissue Graft Procedure: While gum grafting has been performed for years, the procedure required many appointments, involved pain and swelling, and could be hard on a patient. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) is far less invasive and does not involve the grafting tissue, scalpels, surgical wounds or stitches.
