Periodontal Health and Dental Implants
In addition to being the most frequent cause of adult tooth loss, periodontal disease can lead to severe damage to your periodontal tissues and your jawbone. In severe cases, the condition may also complicate or exacerbate certain health conditions—particularly those involving inflammation, such as heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and more.
To diagnose periodontal disease, Dr. Kania utilizes an array of innovative technology, including digital imaging and 3D imaging, if required. To treat periodontal disease, Dr. Kania may utilize one of several advanced techniques, including the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) and advanced pinhole gum graft surgery.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, either to periodontal disease or to another cause, then Dr. Kania may recommend dental implants—prosthetic roots that provide the most comprehensive solution to replacing lost teeth.
