Dental implants in Sarasota
Our dental implants in Sarasota are head and shoulders above more traditional bridges and dentures when it comes to replacing missing teeth. And at Russo Periodontics, this surgical procedure is done by our specialist who has the expertise and experience to assure you of the best possible outcome.
There are two components that are crucial to our dental implants in Sarasota. First is the titanium post that acts as a new root. The second is the tooth, which is a crown fashioned out of durable, tooth-colored material. With bridges and dentures, you’re getting benefit only above the gums. Our dental implants in Sarasota, though, go beneath the gums and are anchored to your jawbone just as a real tooth is. It’s the reason why they are so successful and why they look, feel, and act like natural teeth do. Having that root means that there is a dependable foundation for the implant, but there’s more benefit than that. Your normal facial contours are preserved and your gum and bone tissue will not atrophy. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of implants is that they are self-sustaining. Bridges require that you lose material from surrounding teeth to help secure the bridge in place. Dentures need messy adhesive. Implants are different. Once the crown is cemented to the post, you can expect total reliability, possibly for as long as a lifetime with proper care. You can chew your food with confidence, even the toughest and crunchiest options. You will never have to worry about how you sound when you speak. Your implant is so much like a natural tooth that you may forget you have one at all.
That empty space where a tooth used to be should be filled to give you back your complete smile and full ability to chew food. Contact our dental implants in Sarasota now to arrange a consultation and examination.
Siesta Key Gum Graft
If you are looking for an expert periodontist to provide you with gum grafting, all you need to do is visit us at Russo Periodontics. Our expert and highly regarded periodontist, Dr. John Russo, can provide you with a Siesta Key gum graft to help fix your receding gum problem.
A gum graft is also called a gingival graft. It has also been referred to as periodontal plastic surgery, and is a collective name for several different types of periodontal surgical procedures during which gum tissue is grafted. Gum grafting is used to cover exposed root surfaces to protect the roots, or to improve the appearance of a smile. Often times a gum graft is used so that teeth are protected from further gum recession. Gum recession can occur if you have gum disease, or can even develop because you have been brushing your teeth too often with a toothbrush that is too hard. When a patient has receding gums, it means that the tissue that surrounds the teeth has pulled away from the tooth, and more of the tooth root is exposed. This can cause damage to the supporting bone of the tooth. Gum recession is not a rare problem, as it can affect up to 12% of adults. Gum recession is a very gradual process, which is often not even noticed until it is so severe that it needs treatment. Extreme gum recession can lead to tooth loss, so a gum graft may be needed to save your teeth. There are different types of gum grafting procedures. Our dentist will assess your individual situation and let you know which type of Siesta Key gum graft will work best for you. Our periodontist will also talk to you about where the graft material will be taken from. Sometimes it is removed from the roof of your mouth.

Siesta Key Gum Disease
Gum disease is notorious for quietly causing destruction on gums and teeth. The worst part? Once it reaches advanced stages, this disease is irreversible—meaning it’s for life. But this doesn’t mean you can’t keep its effects under control. Take the first step by reaching out to Russo Periodontics and finally be rid of Siesta Key gum disease. Time is of the essence, so act quickly.
We’re sure you’ve heard of gum disease before. But maybe you’re not entirely sure about what it is and what it does. Assuming this let’s explore a few of the basics.. It’s a long-term disease that shrinks gums little by little. Latter stages of gum disease (known as Periodontitis) are far more dangerous. At this point, dental bone loss begins to happen. Other symptoms afflict the mouth, too. Some of these include extreme sensitivity to cold and hot beverages, bleeding upon contact, and gum irritation. If you’re struggling with gum disease, look to reduce tartar buildup. One of the best ways of going about this is frequent deep cleanings. Unlike regular cleanings, this alternative eradicates tartar lodged beneath the gum line. Unfortunately, it isn’t curable. But it doesn’t mean you can’t arrest the symptoms. Whatever damage done to both gums and jaw bone can be patched up through periodontal surgery. Visit Russo Periodontics and be well on your way to overcoming Siesta Key gum disease.
Don’t gamble on your oral health. If gum disease is slowly destroying your smile, don’t let it get any worse. Get your smile back to the way you know and love it. All you have to do is make a simple phone call (or shoot an e-mail), to Russo Periodontics. Setup an appointment. And bam! If only all things in life were that simple. Then finally undo the effects of Siesta Key gum disease.
