Periodontal Treatments

From basic scaling and root planing to the Pinhole surgical technique, your periodontists in Washington D.C. and Alexandria, VA can do wonders for your smile's form and function. Dr. Zalewsky and Dr. Daru provide a full range of periodontal and related treatments, including gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, dental implants, and preventive care.

Gingivectomy

When gum disease has advanced, it is necessary to remove diseased tissue. A gingivectomy eliminates the parts of the tissues where the bacteria thrive and the gums are reshaped into a natural and healthy position.

Osseous Surgery

This is necessary when the gum disease is advanced enough that the gums have receded from the teeth and it appears that the teeth and gums are no longer bonded.

Gum Grafting

When gums have receded or become misshapen due to gum disease, a gum graft may be the solution. This can be true for one teeth or several teeth.

Pinhole Surgical Technique

This is one of the newest surgical techniques in periodontics and is minimally invasive, fast, and effective. When gums have receded, a small hole is made to insert a small instrument, which can push healthier gums down to cover more tooth.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extraction is generally a last resort, since another procedure is required to replace the extracted tooth. Local anesthesia is applied when the tooth is extracted, after which the hole will be stitched or gauze will be placed to stop the bleeding.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

When gum disease has caused a loss of gum tissue and bone, these need to be replaced to keep your teeth in place and prevent further damage. Some treatments include grafting, stimulating proteins, membrane barriers, or bioactive growth factor gels.

Scaling and Root Planing

This is often the first step in treating gum disease, and should be done as soon as you or your dentist notice any signs of gum abnormalities. When pockets of bacteria begin to form around teeth and gums, plaque starts to build and intervention is needed.

LANAP

LANAP is a laser treatment which can be used around natural teeth to fight gum disease and eradicate infection, leaving healthy gum behind and minimizing the pockets that form around the teeth by encouraging the gums to reattach to the sides of the teeth. The laser can restore gum health without the need for surgery or stitches in the gums.

Periodontal Maintenance

Maintenance is key in with any procedure, and our custom treatment programs are designed to help you prevent any further damage with gum disease. If you have already been diagnosed with periodontal disease, we can help you stop its progress with an individualized plan.

Dental Implants & Implantology

Many dentists these days offer dental implants, but few have the specialized training of a periodontist. As a periodontal specialist offering dental implants in Washington D.C., Dr. Zalewsky has honed the skills necessary to make your surgery a success. If you are missing teeth, read on to see what dental implants can do for you.

Traditional Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most common methods for addressing tooth loss. Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots placed in your jawbone and given time to adhere to your bone, after which a crown can be placed.

All on Four Dental Implants

Patients who are missing the majority or all of their teeth or are unsatisfied with their dentures may be good candidates for All-on-4 Dental Implants, an implant supported denture that only requires four implants, compared to bridges, which can require up to ten implants.

Implant Supported Dentures

Patients who are missing a tooth or teeth, or who have become frustrated with common issues associated with traditional dentures, such as discomfort, having to follow a restricted diet, or constant shifting and slipping may be good candidates for implant supported dentures.

Specialized Dentistry

From basic scaling and root planing to the Pinhole surgical technique, your periodontists in Washington D.C. and Alexandria, VA can do wonders for your smile's form and function. Dr. Zalewsky and Dr. Daru provide a full range of periodontal and related treatments, including gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, dental implants, and preventive care.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a procedure that is performed for patients who are unsatisfied with the ratio of their teeth and gums (also known as a gummy smile) and would like to improve the appearance of their smile.

TMJ Treatment

Everyone has two temporomandibular joints (TMJ), one on the left and one on the right. When one or both of these joints becomes damaged or develops issue with functionality, a patient is said to have TMD or TMJ syndrome.

Tooth Extraction

When teeth become damaged or begin to decay, the issue may be corrected with a filling; however, when a tooth suffers extreme damage, either due to decay, accident, or injury, it may be necessary for the tooth to be extracted.
