Periodontal Services in Knoxville
As a highly trained and experienced periodontist, Dr. Cain will work with you to maintain not only healthy teeth but also healthy gums. Your gums support the health and integrity of your teeth and play a significant role in your overall health and well-being. Keeping the gums healthy can help you avoid both common and complex dental problems, including tooth loss.
Dr. Cain will do a complete periodontal examination at each visit, including the necessary dental X-rays, to help determine if gum disease is present. He will be able to determine which stage of gum disease is present and the necessary treatment.
Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Cain treats the early stages of the disease by performing scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) below the gum line. More advanced stages may require a surgical approach if the initial scaling and root planning do not resolve the infection. Dr. Cain offers periodontal microsurgery, tissue regeneration, and the gingivectomy procedure for the treatment of advanced periodontal concerns like periodontitis.
Do I Need A Tooth Extraction?
The choice to extract a tooth should be made after a careful and thorough evaluation of the tooth and surrounding and supporting tissues. Dr. Cain will make every effort to avoid extracting a natural tooth that can be saved with proper treatment.
Periodontal therapy, bone grafting, and restorative dental treatments can often be used to save a tooth that is in poor health and unstable. If you have been told that you need one or more teeth extracted and would like a second opinion from an experienced periodontist, schedule a visit with Dr. Robert Cain.
