I tell my patients exactly this "you can see any periodontist that you want, but if you want the best, you'll see Dr. Murphy". His laser treatment of periodontal disease and cutting edge gingival grafting techniques make him a superior periodontist!

DR. KIMBERLY MICHALAK

PERIODONTAL DISEASE

A healthy mouth begins with healthy gums. If you are suffering from red, swollen, or tender gums, you may have periodontal disease. Left untreated, it may lead to inflammation, bleeding, and eventually recession. As the gums pull back from the crown of the tooth, the condition may worsen. Early diagnosis and treatment can preserve the health of your teeth and gums.

During your initial consultation, our experienced team will identify whether you are in need of periodontal treatment, and review available treatment options with you.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

We specialize in laser treatment options that provide an alternative to invasive gum surgery. However, if non-surgical treatments do not eradicate your gum disease, we may recommend and perform surgery. One of the most successful treatments our practice utilizes is soft tissue grafts. This procedure reinforces thin, weak gums, and fills out areas that have receded.

Other Treatment Solutions Include:

  • Impacted Tooth Uncovery
  • Orthodontic Facilitation
  • Tooth Socket Preservation
  • Oral Pathology Biopsy
  • Crown Lengthening and Shortening
  • Vestibular Shortening
  • Sinus Lift/Augmentation
  • Occlusal Analysis and Adjustment
  • Tooth Extraction
  • Vestibular Lengthening
  • Guided Tissue Regeneration

  • Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenesis
