You do not even have to leave the comfort and convenience of Dr. Steichen’s office to receive expert and compassionate periodontal care.

Dental Bone Graft In Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Steichen offers numerous periodontal treatments to control the disease and save your teeth and bone, including:

Periodontal Maintenance
A cleaning program for those with a history of periodontal disease. The goal is to stop the progression and damage caused by the disease, and to minimize and maintain periodontal pocket depths.
Bone Grafting
Bone from a second site in your mouth or donated bone is grafted onto areas of low bone volume to allow for tooth replacements like dental implants.
Ridge Augmentation/Preservation
Ridge augmentation restores the natural contours of your facial structure when a tooth is lost. Ridge preservation keeps your mouth healthy and preserves the bone after an extraction to allow for future tooth replacement.
A gingivectomy augments or trims excess gum tissue to reduce periodontal pocket depths, minimizing the areas where bacteria accumulate.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure to treat periodontal disease. It removes plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line to encourage reattachment of healthy tissue and reduce periodontal pocket depths. It is most effective when gum disease is caught early.
Teeth-in-a-Day is an innovative procedure that allows for same day placement of dental implants and a new set of teeth that are ready for immediate function.
