Periodontal Surgery in Boca Raton, FL

Periodontal SurgeryPeriodontal surgery is a dental procedure that aims to restore and rejuvenate the normal function and the natural form of the periodontal structures that have been damaged by periodontal disease. Periodontal structures include the gum tissues, the bone and the periodontal ligament. These parts of the mouth support the teeth, providing them with the strength they need to remain health and perform their intended functions, such as eating and speaking.

Why is Periodontal Surgery Needed?

Periodontal surgery is needed to correct the issues that are caused by periodontal disease. More commonly known as gum disease, periodontal disease inflames the lining of the gums and can spread to the bones that support and surround the teeth.

Periodontal disease is the result of bacteria in dental plaque, the substance that forms on the surface of the teeth. The body’s immune system releases a substance to remove the bacteria, however, that substance can actually damage the mouth by inflaming the gums, the periodontal ligament and the bone that surrounds and supports the teeth.

In the earliest stage of periodontal disease, gingivitis, the gums swell and bleed. If left untreated, this swelling can actually loosen the teeth, and the teeth can eventually fall out.

Types of Periodontal Surgery Procedures

There are several types of procedures that can be used to treat periodontal disease, including:

  • Gingival Flap Surgery During this procedure, the periodontal pockets that form as a result of periodontal disease are reduced.
  • Gingivectomy – This procedure involves removing excess gum tissue that has grown over the teeth, providing more space to efficiently clean the teeth.
  • Gingivoplasty – During this procedure, healthy gum tissue around the teeth is reshaped, improving its appearance.

When to See a Periodontal Surgeon

Typically, a dentist who specializes in general dentistry will discover the signs of periodontal disease. The general dentist will then recommend a periodontal surgeon, who will be able to provide the treatment that is necessary to repair the gums and teeth.

Ericsson Dental is hands down the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. I felt no pain whatsoever and this was truly an enjoyable experience from the amazing 4K TVs to the incredible service. Dr. Ericsson went out of his way to fix my teeth at the most favorable price on the market. It is a family owned enterprise and it truly feels like you are part of the family when you walk into this practice. People travel across the country to see him and I see why. If you have never been to Ericsson Dental I highly recommend that you start now, I promise you will be more than happy with what you are going to get.

I recently was referred to Dr. Ericsson by my former Dentist. I had quite a few problems going on with my teeth and for years I didn't even want to smile anymore or have my picture taken .Dr. Ericsson took a few x-rays and in length explained what he recommended. Long story short, I agreed to a full mouth restoration! ( Especially after looking at his before and after photo album) Dr. Ericsson did an outstanding job! I constantly get compliments from my friends, strangers, and even my other Doctors. During the procedure Dr. Erickson and his wonderful staff were always so passionate and professional. Dr. Ericsson also worked out a payment plan with me over a time that was budget friendly for me. I Highly recommend Dr. Ericsson to everyone now ! Not only has this boosted my confidence and self esteem again, but its changed my life! Thank you Dr. Ericsson!!

Dr Ericsson is an amazing dentist. I read his outstanding reviews and decided to use him for replacement of a bridge. Not only did he do an excellent job but his price was extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone.

The most gentle and thorough cleaning I’ve ever experienced. I have always required local numbing and gas for teeth cleaning at other dental offices. Not anymore! Great experience, from scheduling to services and billing, these guys are the best! Flexibility of appointments, skill level of staff, and professionalism & friendliness of entire office was refreshing and impressive.

The best Dentist ever. Broke a front tooth on Christmas Eve. Called Dr Mark at 8:30 at night. He answered the phone and told me to be in his office the next morning on Christmas Day! Who does that. Dr Mark does. He had a temp. front tooth in place in three hours. There is no one better Dentist out there.
