Treatment of Gum Disease
Treating gum disease starts with the removal of any plaque and hardened deposits (tartar or calculus) on the tooth root surfaces. This may be followed by other non-surgical treatments and/or periodontal surgery to remove diseased tissue and restore your mouth to the best possible health.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer the comfort and security of a permanent replacement that looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve the tooth-supporting bone in your jaw that deteriorates when even one tooth is lost.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery
The gum tissue that surrounds and supports your teeth plays a big role in how appealing your smile will look. Excess gum tissue, gum recession, and an uneven gum line are all problems that can often be successfully treated surgically at the dental office. Learn more about Cosmetic Gum Surgery.
If gum recession is affecting your health or your appearance, a routine surgical procedure called gum grafting may help. It involves carefully placing a small amount of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists — typically recommended to prevent further gum recession or to help cover tooth root surfaces that have become exposed. Learn more about Gum Grafting.
Chao Pinhole Technique™
The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ is a procedure in which Dr. Marchi uses specialized instruments to make a small hole in your gum and add collagen material which stabilizes the area of gum recession. This new method is simple, suture-free and minimally invasive.
PST™ was developed and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. It has been featured in the International Journal of Periodontics, one of the most prestigious dentistry journals in the world. Learn more about the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™.
There are times when it is in your best interest to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons, including: damage or trauma to the tooth; extensive gum disease; extensive tooth decay; or overcrowding. Learn more about Tooth Extractions.
Bone grafting, a minor in-office surgical procedure, is commonly used in dentistry to correct deficiencies in bone quantity and to build support for teeth or dental implants. Learn more about Bone Grafting.
What is Gum Disease?
Periodontal come from two Greek words that mean “around the tooth”. There are two types of periodontal disease- Gingivitis and Periodontitis. Both are are started by a bacterial irritation which inflames the gums, bone, and ligaments that support all of the teeth and hold them to the jaw. More than half of all people over the age of 18 have at least the early stage of periodontal disease. After age 35, nearly three of four adults are affected by gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. When gum disease is detected early it can be treated comfortably, economically and successfully. Only a dentist can detect gum disease.
