Dr. Planes Explains Periodontal Disease
5-Star Reviews of Our Dental Practice
As a new patient, I knew in advance I would probably need scaling and root planing which is usually quite uncomfortable. My experience during this proceudre was outstanding (the best I have had). Lidia was terrific. She was very concerned about my comfort and minimizing any possible pain. I cannot thank her enough for the excellent work. I highly recommend Planes Dental Arts and suggest asking for Lidia.View on Google
The office is very clean and professional. Everyone was kind, smiled and greeted us when we came in. The hygienist was patient with my son. The dentist was efficient and responsible with his recommendations. Overall I was pleased with our visit.View on Google
Surgical Treatments for Gum Disease
Also known as pocket reduction surgery, flap surgery involves small incisions in the infected gum tissue to effectively reach the areas near the tooth roots.
Dr. Planes can restore gum loss for patients with significant gum recession by adding tissue to the infected area, preventing further damage and reducing sensitivity.
Advanced periodontitis can lead to jawbone deterioration that can lead to tooth loss. A bone graft can replace missing tissue to restore the foundation of your smile.
