Gum Problems

Gum Disease

Gum Disease - Prosthodontist San Jose, CA
•  Bacteria: Our mouths are full of bacteria.
•  Plaque: Bacteria constantly forms a sticky, colorless "plaque" on the teeth.
•  Tartar: Plaque that is not removed hardens to form bacteria-harboring "tartar."
•  Inflammation: Inflammation of the gums is called "gingivitis." If left untreated, it can advance to "periodontitis," which is an inflammation around the tooth that affects the bony support.
•  Gums Pull Away from Tooth: In Periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form "pockets" that are infected. Plaque and tartar spread and grow below the gum line and break down the bone and connective tissue.


Gum and Tooth Sensitivity - Prosthodontist San Jose, CA

Gum & Tooth Sensitivity

Gum disease can expose tooth roots to the elements, including all foods and liquids you take in every day. When gums become infected, the roots become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. This can be extremely uncomfortable and patients who experience this problem should see a dentist right away.



Gum Lift (Laser) - Prosthodontist San Jose, CA

Gum Lift (Laser)

A gum lift may be performed to create a more even gum line. Patients with a gummy smile can quickly and safely have unwanted tissue removed, thus exposing more tooth to shape a more attractive smile.





Gum Graft - Prosthodontist San Jose, CA

Gum Graft

Root exposure resulting from gingival tissue recession may pose multiple problems for patients. A gingival tissue graft will restore the proper gum tissue structure around the tooth.





Soft Tissue Laser - Prosthodontist San Jose, CA

Soft Tissue Laser

Laser technology works very well with hard tissue (such as removing fillings and repairing cavities) as there is little tooth structure lost. And because there is little heat and no vibration, there is no need for anesthetic!
