Periodontal diseases are infections of the structures around the teeth affecting nearly 80 percent of the adult population. The earliest stage of periodontal disease, which is gingivitis, involves an infection of the gums. In more severe forms of the disease, all of the tissues are involved. You may have periodontal disease without even realizing it, as gum disease does not always show any signs or painful symptoms.
When you come in for an appointment, we perform a thorough exam that includes checking for periodontal disease. Dr. Nataly Vilderman may suggest a variety of treatment options based on the severity of your periodontal disease and your individual needs. One common treatment would be using our BIOLASE WaterLase technology to remove the disease and clean the area affecting the gums.
We are pleased to use an exciting, revolutionary new technique of periodontal surgery at the office of Nataly Vilderman, DDS. The pinhole technique that we provide is minimally invasive and allows for a much quicker recovery time than standard periodontal surgery techniques, which require grafting. This technique is scalpel-free and requires no incisions, as our dentist uses the existing gum tissue to rejuvenate your gums. The results are proven, exciting, and effective.
More severe cases of periodontal disease may need surgery to repair damage to the gums and surrounding tissue. At the office of Nataly Vilderman, DDS, advanced tools and techniques are used during periodontal surgery in order to minimize pain and maximize results so that your gums and soft tissue will heal quickly and properly. It is important to treat periodontal disease as soon as possible, as gum disease has been linked to many severe health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and pregnancy complications.
