Our Periodontal Services
Periodontics treats tissues that surround and support your teeth. Just like your teeth, these tissues need high-quality care. At Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS, we offer high-end periodontal services. These include gum grafting, bone grafting, sinus augmenting, and dental implants. The well-being of each of these parts is integral to your overall health.
It takes years for someone to become a periodontist. They take care of your gums and bone tissues, often through surgery. That is why Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung has training beyond dental school.
Periodontists recommend gum grafting to patients with dental root exposure. During this procedure, we rearrange your gums to cover the exposed dental root. The gum protects patients from experiencing further oral damage. However, if the root tissue remains uncovered, the supporting bone tissue can become very unhealthy.
While the thought of any gum treatment sounds scary, Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS's team can help you enjoy a low-stress experience. You deserve to have gums that keep your mouth healthy.
Bone grafting is like gum grafting, except it is all about replacing lost jawbone tissue. It requires surgery and a periodontist to complete. After surgery, the patient will have a stronger and more supportive jawbone. Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS's team performs bone grafting by attaching extra bone material to the jaw.
Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS recommends bone grafting to patients with tooth loss and gum disease. These patients go home with antibiotics and other post-op instructions. They often report feeling little to no pain during recovery.
Sinus augmentations give periodontists "more to work with." Some patients do not have enough jawbone for dental implants. So sinus augmentations lift the sinuses further above the jaw to make room for the implants.
This treatment is a popular step-by-step procedure at Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS. Though it can take several months for augmented sinuses to heal, the results are worth it.
Wellbeing Periodontics - Dr. Na Eun (Sarah) Chung DMD, MS works with many patients who need dental implants. Implants are life-changing for people with missing teeth. They are a popular periodontal service that help people eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Implants need two separate procedures, but they are worth the time and money. The first procedure involves implanting a screw-like post into your jawbone. After the bone and gum tissue surrounding the post heal, we insert the new tooth. So you will get your tooth during your second procedure.
