Our Periodontal Procedures

At Derby City Dental Specialists, you can find the care you need to transform your smile from dental implants and implant dentures to gum recession treatment.

Dental Implants

When a tooth is missing or requires extraction, it leaves a gap that can not only make you feel self-conscious about your smile but can also affect your ability to eat and speak comfortably. Missing teeth can also contribute to bone loss and allow adjacent teeth to shift out of place. Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting solution for replacing the tooth root to prevent bone deterioration and securing a beautiful, natural-looking replacement crown. They are cared for just like natural teeth and can boost your confidence in the look and function of your smile.

Full Arch Restoration

Advances in full arch restoration have made it possible to replace a full arch of teeth with the support of just four dental implants. Full arch restoration is an alternative to traditional dentures in that rather than fitting over the gums, they are affixed directly to the jaw using small titanium posts. This holds your teeth more securely in place and allows you to eat and drink like normal without fear of your dentures slipping or shifting. They are cared for like natural teeth and do not need to be removed for cleaning or sleeping.

Gum Disease Treatment

Even with good oral hygiene, gum disease can develop. Gum disease treatment removes harmful bacteria to improve tooth and gum health and prevent further damage.
