At Great Smile Dental, we hold a very high standard for our practice, patients, dentists, and we take pride in the work we do.

Before cosmetic dental services can be administered, your overall oral health needs assessed and corrected if necessary. Gum disease and periodontal disease are common ailments in dental medicine that should be corrected immediately. The treatment for gum disease varies from intensive oral cleaning, to oral surgery. An oral surgeon may recommend the following procedures to treat severe gum disease and periodontal disease:
 
  • Bone Graft – Your oral surgeon can replace the bone at your tooth root. The graft may include your bone, or artificial bone to repair the area.
  • Soft Tissue Grafts – Receding gum lines can be corrected with soft tissue grafts around the gumline to reinforce the areas.
  • Flap Surgery – Your oral surgeon makes incisions in your gums to clean underneath the gum close to the root of your tooth.
  • Tissue Regeneration – Sometimes a patient may suffer from bone degradation caused by bacteria in the affected area near the root. Your oral surgeon can guide the regrowth in certain areas using a procedure called guided tissue regeneration.
