Dr. Leiderman's practice offers a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical services for the treatment of periodontal issues. We welcome you to browse through these pages to inform yourself and learn more about these procedures.

Periodontal Surgery

Pocket Reduction
When supporting tissue and bone is destroyed, "pockets" form around the teeth.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession.
Crown Lengthening
Your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they're covered with too much gum tissue.
Regenerative Procedures
Pocedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.
Ridge Augmentation
This periodontal procedure recaptures the natural contour of your gums and jaw after tooth loss.

Dental Implants

Single Tooth Implant
If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
Replacing Several Teeth
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
Replacing All Teeth
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
Sinus Augmentation
A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed.
Ridge Modification
Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants.

Gummy Smile
Many people have a broad, too-wide, gummy smile. So wide, in fact, that during this Dynamic Smile, as it is termed, they show too much tooth and gum.
