As a periodontist, Dr. Burchard has completed several years of intensive study, education, and clinical experience in order to provide specialized care for the treatment of periodontal disease. With an in-depth understanding of this progressive and destructive disease, Dr. Burchard can offer high-quality treatment solutions designed to restore the functionality and the health of your teeth.
Quite often, the advanced stages of periodontal disease are marked by the destruction and deterioration of the bone tissue that once supported the teeth. This can occur in a localized area, or it may extend throughout a generalized area in the mouth. Because the jawbone is unable to heal itself, Dr. Burchard has the ability to surgically reinforce an area of bone loss with the placement of additional bone tissue (with natural or artificial bone) in many circumstances.
Treatment of Gum Disease
Gum disease cannot be successfully treated until the source of the gum infection has been identified and eliminated. Periodontal procedures such as scaling and root planing and pocket reduction allows Dr. Burchard to adequately access and resolve the infection. These procedures will also enhance your ability to perform the recommended oral hygiene practices at home.
While damaged bone or soft tissue will not heal itself, there is exciting clinical proof that these hard and soft tissues can be encouraged to regrow when they are surgically treated with bioactive tissue grafting materials. Dr. Burchard uses the the most up-to-date advances in tissue regeneration to improve the periodontal health of his patients. These procedures, aimed at regenerating missing tissues, can help to deliver optimal results in the treatment of advanced periodontal disease.
