From prevention and diagnosis to repairing and rejuvenating your oral health — we’re with you every step of the way.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection attacking the foundation of your teeth. It is usually caused by plaque and calculus build-up around the gumline. If your body doesn’t respond well to this invasion, it will lead to tooth loss. Other symptoms include:

  • Swollen gums that bleed easily
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Gum recession and bone loss

Osseous Surgery

Gum disease often causes deep pockets to form around your teeth. These pockets are the perfect hiding spot for bacteria and are difficult to clean on your own, this results in further bone and tissue loss.

Dr. Pumphrey offers osseous surgery, also known as pocket depth reduction, to restore your health.

This procedure is usually recommended after other therapy options have proved unsuccessful or as a treatment for advanced stages of gum disease.

Gum Recession Therapy

Gum recession is a common result of gum disease and refers to lost tissue along your gum line. This can make your teeth quite sensitive and can increase your risk of tooth decay and even tooth loss.

Dr. Pumphrey offers a combination of traditional treatment and state-of-the-art techniques to give you personalized care and superior results — traditional gum grafts, tunneling and the cutting-edge Chao Pinhole technique.

Bone Regeneration

Gum disease can eat away at the bone and hard tissue surrounding your teeth. When this happens, a bone graft builds up the foundation around your teeth to maintain its health.

Additionally, if you’ve lost a tooth due to gum disease or trauma and are considering an implant, a bone graft may be necessary to ensure the implant is a success.

Scaling & Root Planing (SRP)

Scaling and root planing is one of the most common non-surgical methods for stopping gum disease in its tracks.

Dr. Pumphrey or one of our experienced dental hygienists will use high-tech instruments to scale all plaque, bacterial toxins, and tartar deposits from your teeth. They’ll also smooth any rough areas on your roots’ surfaces.

This advanced dental cleaning removes bacteria, keeps plaque and tartar from re-adhering underneath your gum line, and encourages your gums to heal and reattach themselves more firmly.

Dr. Pumphrey fit me in that very day for the procedure! I appreciate how the two work together for the benefit of their patients; and, how they will go the extra mile to fit out-of-town patients into their schedules while the patient is ‘in town’. Thank You!
