Periodontics in Charlottetown

Gum disease can be a frightening thought. No one wants to think about having to deal with the consequences of this painful and unsightly condition, and if you are fortunate enough to be free of periodontal issues, then the good news is that they are almost always entirely preventable. Good oral hygiene and proper dental care is key to making certain gum disease never knocks at your door, and every routine check-up appointment you keep is one more fight you’ve won against it.

But for those patients already dealing with the effects of gum disease, it’s vital to receive the treatments they need to fight its progression and to alleviate the symptoms. At Rochford Family Dental, we offer a full range of periodontic services, all performed with our trademark compassion and skilled care.

Tooth extraction

Though we try to avoid tooth loss as a rule, there are times when a tooth extraction is necessary for periodontics patients. When one tooth has been heavily damaged, it may be best to remove it so that it doesn’t begin to affect the surrounding teeth. When this is necessary, we perform the tooth extraction in our office, with all necessary follow-up care.

Crown lengthening

Crown lengthening is performed to improve the health of the gums by removing compromised tissue or correcting a “gummy smile” (a smile in which too much of the gum is showing). This procedure will reshape and contour the gum tissue as needed to improve appearance, aid in treating gum disease, or help prepare the tooth for restoration.

For more complex periodontal procedures like bone grafts, free gingival grafts, and connective tissue grafts, Dr. Nantes will discuss the possibility of a referral to a periodontal specialist.

We know that fighting gum disease can be an anxious and challenging process. At Rochford Family Dental, we’re here to help you through it, with compassionate and highly-skilled care that gets results.
