Missing Teeth? You Are Not Alone.
Missing teeth can radically affect a patient’s level of confidence as well as fundamentally changing the function of the mouth. We helps patients save their teeth from the development of periodontal disease through the use of cutting edge technology with a gentle touch.
Periodontal disease is a chronic infection that destroys the gum tissue supporting the teeth. Over time, gum tissue becomes red, swollen bleeds easily and separates from the surfaces of the teeth. The resulting pockets continue to collect bacteria and plaque that harm teeth and gums.
Loose teeth, bad breath, and tooth sensitivity are also common symptoms of periodontal disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease results in tooth loss.

Using revolutionary laser technology to halt the progression of periodontal disease. Our dentists are able to clean out the pockets between teeth, remove tartar and calculus from on and around the teeth, and remove infected tissue.
With this type of periodontal maintenance, patients experience less discomfort, faster healing, and no stitches.
Gum Grafting helps patients heal and stops gum disease
As periodontal disease develops, gum tissue pulls away from the roots of the teeth, creating pockets that continue to collect bacteria and promote decay. Some teeth can appear longer than others, and patients can experience extreme temperatures when eating or drinking, which is a clear indication of gum recession.
Our team treats periodontal pockets in the gumline and receding gum tissue using revolutionary gum grafting techniques. With a traditional gum graft, Dr. Salloum surgically replaces the missing gum tissue. Using an innovative technique called Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), Dr. Salloum can restore gum tissue without cutting or suturing.
