Our comprehensive, patient-centered approach to periodontal health includes many periodontal services. We can help prevent further issues and maintain your overall oral health with maintenance and non-surgical procedures and screenings.
We care for oral health at all levels. Non-surgical periodontal services such as deep cleaning, bite adjustment, cancer screenings, and others are also a cornerstone of our practice. Dr. Malek’s conservative approach helps our patients avoid unnecessary surgical procedures with advanced care techniques.
After active treatment, your continuing oral health is a top priority. Our office takes care of this need with a customized program that helps you maintain it.
With routine maintenance therapy, your periodontal health is maximized, and future problems and tooth loss are minimized. Dr. Malek will provide you with a schedule and a plan for future check-ups and home care.
The first steps in treating periodontal disease usually involve a deep cleaning. This removes the build-up of tartar and plaque that is contributing to the problem. The scaling procedure uses an ultrasonic tool to clean tooth surfaces – especially just below the gum line. Root planing addresses the embedded build-up of tartar and calculus as it smooths and cleans teeth roots.
As a regularly-scheduled service, teeth cleaning provides prophylaxis for teeth and gums. Specialized dental equipment is used to cover hard-to-miss areas and make smiles shine.
Prevention and detection of oral cancer are best performed in our office setting. Dr. Malek provides a thorough screening for any signs of cancer of the mouth, gums, or oral tissues.
A bad bite can cause pain, unevenly-worn teeth, persistent headaches, and more. Our office can help restore even bite pressure by reshaping and reconstructing teeth, using braces, and more.
Dr. Malek can care for your complete oral health needs with surgical procedures. These periodontal services can involve dental implants, bone and tissue regeneration and grafts, gum reduction surgeries, and more. Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art technologies that use lasers, ultrasonic cleaning, and other advances to minimize pain and healing time.
Receding gums can’t protect teeth as well as they used to. Gum grafts restore gums with new tissue. With new healthy gum tissue in place, teeth look better, the risk of infection is decreased, and teeth aren’t as sensitive.
Dental implants replace teeth with a natural-looking, long-lasting alternative. A titanium implant is inserted into the bone, eventually becoming part of it. The porcelain crown and secure position of an implant feels and looks and feels more like natural teeth than any other option.
An array of problems can be caused by missing teeth – everything from increased tooth wear on remaining teeth to headaches. Our practice can advise which solution will work best for you, helping you choose from many options.
Loss of teeth, infection, cancer, traumatic injury, and other issues can contribute to significant loss of bone in the jaw. Inadequate bone structure can delay implant surgery, cause other health issues, and alter appearance. Bone grafts can reverse this loss by regenerating lost tissue.
Reduction surgeries – also called osseous surgery or pocket reduction, remove excess gum tissue from areas that have become infected, exposed, or problematic in order to reach the tooth roots. Once done, the roots can be cleaned, smoothed, and reshaped. Afterward, the gums are put back into place.
New options for restoring lost and deteriorated bone and oral tissues include surgical removal of damaged areas and implanted membranes to encourage regeneration of bones and gums. These advanced procedures help stabilize and restore problem areas, as well as prepare jawbones for implants.
The Straumann Dental Implant System is a simple, flexible way to replace one or more missing teeth with a post-implant.
All-on-4 Implants are designed to take the place of an entire set of teeth in one day with a full-arch denture.
This form of ultrasonic technology allows Dr. Malek to cut tissue with incredible precision, increasing healing time.
This new technique is geared toward minimally invasive surgery. Using pinhole-sized entry points, specialized instruments are used to move the gum tissue and promote repair and healing. The advanced procedure doesn’t require the use of grafts, as it’s only slightly relocating the existing tissue.
