|KC Dental: Now Offering IN-HOUSE Periodontic Services!|
The word periodontal literally means "around the tooth." Periodontal diseases, more commonly known as gum disease, are a family of serious bacterial infections that destroy the attachment fibers and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in America today. Regular dental visits are the best insurance for maintaining healthy gums. Our general dentists examine your gums and provide preventative care to keep your gums healthy.
Should you need further treatment, don't worry because at KC Dental we have our own in-house periodontist, Dr. Siddharth Gupta, to take care of your periodontic needs comfortably and professionally. No more going from office to office for qualified periodontic care! In addition to the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, Dr. Gupta also specializes in sinus augmentation, as well as the exciting new field of dental implants.
Dental Implants: Creating Healthy New Smiles!
Dental implants represent one of the most important
advances in periodontics. Implants offer patients with
missing or extremely damaged teeth the opportunity
to once again enjoy a fully functional bite. Best of all,
recent advances in implant technology have made
them extremely successful and they are often the ideal
solution for a number of dental conditions.
Rather than resting on the gum line like removable
dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed
bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that
your oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in the jawbone.
A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of
three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from
the gum line; and the crown, which is created by our in-house experts and fitted onto the abutment for a natural appearance.
With an overall success rate of about 95% and almost 50 years of
clinical research to back them up, dental implants are frequently the
best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
