If you are going to be getting dental implants you should come to our periodontal practice, Russo Periodontics, for precisely placed dental implants. Our top-notch periodontist, Dr. John Russo uses the latest Siesta Key X-Nav technology for precise dental implant placement.

When you want to make sure that your dental implant procedure is a complete success, you will want to receive your dental implant roots at our periodontal practice. Our periodontist is highly skilled and experienced in providing patients with well-placed dental implants. And, at our practice our periodontist uses the latest Siesta Key X-Nav technology to make sure that the dental implants are precisely placed in the right location. When dental implants are correctly placed, the completed dental implant will be a comfortable and natural-looking tooth, and will be a great permanent solution to replace your missing tooth. However, the success of the dental implant procedure begins with proper placement of the titanium dental implant root. If a dental implant root is not in the correct location, it will not be possible to have a well-placed replacement tooth in the right solution. This means that the final crown will need to be modified in order to properly fit into the patient’s mouth. Our X-Nav technology enhances the capabilities of our cone beam system so that our periodontist can provide you with a perfectly accurate dental implant placement. This new technology allows our periodontist to improve the precision and accuracy of the implant position, angle, and depth during oral surgery. The system actually gives our periodontist a live 360° view of the drill position and the jawbone anatomy during surgery. This technology will ensure the optimal placement of the new dental implant root. It is also a cost-effective way for our patient to get same-day guided surgery for your implant procedure.

If you would like to come in to speak to our periodontist regarding dental implants, and to learn more about our Siesta Key X-Nav technology, contact us today for an appointment.

Sarasota Gum Grafting

Periodontist in Sarasota

There are many different varieties of periodontal disease and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. All require a visit to our periodontist to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone. At Russo Periodontics, we offer Sarasota gum grafting and gum treatment for many common types of periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis, chronic periodontal disease, aggressive periodontal disease, and periodontal disease relating to systemic conditions, as well as necrotizing periodontal disease.

Although we stress proper oral hygiene habits in order to prevent gum disease, our office specializes in periodontal therapy, offering services such as scaling and root planning, antibiotics, as well as non-surgical periodontal therapy. It is important to prevent gum disease as infection and inflammation of the tissues that support your teeth can erode the ligament and bone beneath the gums, resulting in tooth loss. Our periodontist will provide regular examinations of your gums during checkups with a periodontal probe and regular x-rays. If periodontal disease is diagnosed, we will discuss with you which of our services will best suit your individual needs for Sarasota gum grafting and gum treatment. Non-surgical periodontal therapy may be all that’s needed, especially when caught early. This therapy removes the plague and calculus by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria, and treating conditions that may encourage gum disease. If your periodontitis is more advanced, however, periodontal scaling and root planning may be required. Scaling is a procedure that meticulously removes the plague and tartar deposits at and under the gum line, while root planning then smooths the root’s surfaces so that the supportive tissues can better attach to the tooth surface. This is done with local anesthesia to aid in your comfort. As with most other bacterial diseases, an antibiotic may be administered to help control, reduce, or eliminate the harmful bacteria.

We will take the time to customize and personalize the treatment for each patient. Our practice strives to ensure our patients have a pleasant experience, and are sent home with a bright, beautiful, healthy smile. Taking care of your teeth is vital to your oral and overall health. So whether your periodontal disease needs only simple, non-surgical therapy or requires a deeper cleaning with scaling and root planning, Sarasota gum grafting and gum treatment from our periodontist at Russo Periodontics will transform your teeth, gums, and mouth so that you leave our office smiling.
