About Our Practice
Dental implants can be a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth while creating natural-looking, functional results. Implants provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth and help prevent bone loss in the jaw. They are easy to care for and help preserve facial structure. Learn more about how you can improve your smile with implants and regain your confidence.
Some people are naturally more susceptible to gum disease, but gum disease treatment can eliminate bacterial infections and protect teeth from further damage. There are surgical and nonsurgical options for restoring gum health. Gum disease treatment can be effective in addressing advanced gum disease and improving gum health. Both traditional and laser options can remove bacteria and diseased tissue to strengthen teeth.
About Gum Disease Treatment
If you are unhappy with your smile, a smile makeover is a great option for addressing concerns and imperfections to create a look that makes you feel more confident. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs. A smile makeover can consist of veneers, crown enhancement, dental implants, orthodontic care, and other cosmetic treatments that can help you achieve a more pleasing aesthetic.
Missing teeth and gum problems can interfere with your quality of life. Dr. Clagett takes the time to understand what is causing the issues you are experiencing and how to resolve these problems. He uses innovative tools to place implants with precision minimizing discomfort and optimizing outcomes. Minimally invasive techniques are used to treat gum disease at all stages and improve the health, appearance, and function of your gums. He is the inventor of the SAMRI technique for gum grafting, which is a faster, less invasive approach than traditional techniques.
Dr. Clagett performs a thorough examination to gain a detailed picture of your oral health. With experience in periodontics and dental implantology, he presents all available options for care discussing benefits, outcomes, expectations, and costs. Then he works with you on a personalized plan for replacing missing teeth, treating gum disease, and enhancing your smile to achieve the results you desire. Whether you are concerned about gum disease, wondering if dental implants are the right choice for you, or want to revamp your smile, Dr. Clagett can help.
