Periodontal Therapy

As a periodontal practice, our team specializes in treating patients with gum disease. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is a chronic infection which can have a negative effect on not only your oral health, but your overall health. It can contribute to heart disease or stroke. It can also result in catastrophic bone loss, which results in unstable teeth, and ultimately, tooth loss.

Improving Smiles & Oral Health Since 1993

It is our goal to help patients restore and maintain good periodontal health and preserve natural tooth structure. For 30 years, our office has served patients here in Hamburg and from across Western New York. Our doctor and team provide a full range of services including implant dentistry and both non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapies. We provide non-surgical options whenever possible.

Gum Grafting
This treatment is used to treat gum recession. When gums recede, it can increase sensitivity, expose the tooth roots, and put you at a higher risk for decay and disease. The grafting procedure improves aesthetics, alleviates sensitivity, and covers the exposed tooth root.
Pinhole Technique

This gum recession treatment procedure was invented and patented by John Chao, DDS, MADG. it provides patients with a way to restore their dental wellness without traditional surgical techniques. During treatment, a small hole is made with a needle and we use specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and slide it over the expose root structure. This procedure is suture-free and scalpel-free and results in a faster recovery time, minimal discomfort, and instant cosmetic improvement.

Crown Lengthening
This procedure is used to lay the groundwork for cosmetic or restorative dental treatments, particularly crown replacements. It helps create the necessary space between the crown and supporting bone. In addition, it prevents your replacement crown from damaging the bone and gum tissue.

A frenectomy is used for patients who have extra skin under their upper lip or a tongue tie. During the procedure, the connecting muscle is removed to free your tongue or lip, which improves range of motion. This procedure will help prevent future recession.
