Treatment of Gum disease
If your dentist has concerns that you may have a form of periodontal disease he or she may refer you to a periodontist for an evaluation. (Click here to learn more about periodontal disease) During your periodontal exam, the spaces between the teeth and the gums will be measured, any looseness of the teeth will be assessed, and your x-rays will be evaluated to determine the strength of the bone supporting the teeth. Treatment of periodontal disease varies depending on the level of periodontal disease and is aimed at the least invasive and most cost-effective option.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Derek Borgwardt, DDS, MS or Sarah Rinehart, DDS, MS and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.
