Periodontal Services

Periodontal structures refer to the parts of your mouth which support your teeth. These include the gums and the jawbone, the alveolar bone and the periodontal ligament. An infection in the periodontium can shake the foundation of your teeth and lead to a number of oral problems including tooth loss. High-quality periodontal care services from the office of Comfort Dental Care are aimed at keeping your periodontium healthy and free from disease.

The primary cause of gum disease is plaque. In the absence of proper cleaning, plaque deposits tend to harden and become tartar, and professional cleaning is needed to eliminate these. If left untreated, this can cause tooth decay and ultimately, gum problems.

Periodontal Services at Comfort Dental Care

  • Scaling and Root Planing: This is a non-surgical treatment for early gum disease. It is a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from the gum line. This is followed by smoothing out the root surfaces to prevent future deposits of bacteria.
  • Dental Crown Lengthening: This procedure involves adjustment of the gum and bone to expose more of the tooth’s crown. It is used to fix gummy smiles.
  • Laser Treatment: In this treatment, we make use of a special gum laser to remove infected or swollen gum tissue from around the roots of the tooth. Then, root scaling is done, and the gums reattach as they heal.
  • Ridge Augmentation: Ridge augmentation is done if the facial plate of a tooth socket is broken or missing. A bone graft is placed into the tooth socket to replicate the size of the ridge.
  • Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation: This is a minimally invasive treatment wherein we loosen the gum tissue by accessing it through a small pinhole that is created with dental instruments. No incisions or sutures are needed.
  • Sinus Lift: Sinus lift procedures are carried out to add bone in case of upper jaw restorations when there is not enough bone to support a dental implant for an artificial tooth.
  • Bone Grafting: Bone grafting surgery is used to add artificial or natural bone to the jaw in patients who do not possess enough bone density to be able to support an implant.

Our Happy Patients

"I love this place.....Great staff and Dr. Porwal is wonderful. I just finished my Invisalign trays and she and her great staff made my smile beautiful!"

Ryan A.

"I have had dentures most of my life, Dr. Porwal is the first dentist to go the extra mile to make my new teeth exactly how I wanted them to look, (fabulous)! The receptionist Ashley was always very nice, along with the other front end personnel. I would recommend Comfort Dental to anyone in need of a personal touch to make your smile something you want to do every day. Thank you Julie V. From Oakley Ca."

"Dr. Porwal is good at what she does. I had to see someone else when she was out of town recently and it really brought home how much better she was when I had a recent alternative to compare her work with. Very good with pain management. Also the office uses up to date technology and I prefer the restorations I have had done with her lazer over the drill work of dentists still using that. They offer late appointments so I have no trouble scheduling around my work schedule."
