We Offer the Periodontal Services You Need
For more than 20 years, Anne Lyon DDS has been serving patients in the Austin, TX community. We provide periodontal services to keep your soft and hard tissues healthy and functioning.
Our periodontal services include:
- Scaling and Root Planing: These are non-surgical procedures that clean deep below the gum line, removing calculus from the tooth root. The surfaces of the tooth are smoothed to encourage healthy tissue to reattach, reducing pocket depth.
- Bone Grafting: If you have lost bone density in an area of your mouth, we can perform a bone graft. Bone grafting restores bone that has been resorbed due to advanced gum disease.
- Ridge Augmentation: Have you lost one or more teeth? Is the jaw bone ridge uneven or sunken in? We can carefully augment and preserve the ridge with bone grafting techniques.
- Gingivectomy: Performed to reduce the look of a gummy smile, our dental lasers remove gum tissue, leaving a wider, brighter smile.
The Mouth-Body Connection
Giving your mouth the same attention you give the rest of your body will pay off in the long run. Everything in us is essentially connected, and research has shown there's an association between periodontal disease and other conditions such as:
- Diabetes: diabetes reduces the body’s overall resistance to infection. Patients who have it are more likely to have tooth loss and some form of gum disease.
- Heart disease: if you suffer from severe gum damage, you’re more likely to have cardiovascular disease; including heart disease and stroke, than someone with healthy gums. Both conditions additionally share many risk factors, such as smoking and a poor diet.
- Respiratory disease: inflammation in the gum can lead to severe inflammation in the lining of the lungs, which aggravates conditions such as pneumonia.
