Choose the Right Kind of Procedure For Your Gum Health
We use two different techniques to treat gum recession. We can use a traditional gum graft to replace your missing gum tissue. If you’ve lost bone as well, we can place a material to spur new bone growth at the site. Our periodontist is also certified to perform a procedure called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
Unlike a gum graft, no cutting or stitches are necessary with the pinhole technique. The procedure can be completed in about an hour, much faster than a graft, and healing is faster too. As convenient as that is, it’s even more so with our extended hours. You can schedule your procedure as early as 7:30 a.m. or even on a Saturday!
Don’t Ignore Gum Disease Symptoms
Gum disease is often the cause of receding gums. Bacteria gets in between the teeth and gums, causing gums to pull away from teeth. Our gum disease treatment will prevent the disease from advancing to that stage, where tooth loss can occur. We use a deep cleaning process called scaling and root planing, as well as applications of antibiotic.
Our goal is to help you keep a full, healthy smile for life and prevent tooth loss whenever possible. Call us ASAP if you’re experiencing any of these gum disease symptoms:
- Tender gums
- Pain while chewing
- Gums that bleed, when brushing teeth or at other times
- Gums that appear red instead of pink
- Bad breath that won’t go away

"Dr. Dickson and his staff are amazing. I want to recognize Lilly and Rachel for their professional assistance with my dental surgery yesterday."- J.W. / Google / Dec 10, 2020
"The staff and Dr. Dickson give impeccable service. They are honest and caring and make you feel comfortable. I'm frightened of the dentist's chair. I'm the woman that crys just for a chat in the chair. I don't think I'll be scared any longer, after a recent oral surgery there. I've got more treatment to go, but know they'll make me comfortable and ensure that pain doesn't have to be part of the dental experience."- M.B. / Google / Dec 10, 2020

"Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020, was the first time our 4 year old has been to the dentist. Dr. Dickson and his staff made her feel so comfortable and relaxed that she held her mouth open even when they weren’t cleaning her teeth. To top it off she has some cavities and she’s begging to go back so Dr. Darren can get her "cavity bugs". The icing on the cake was the way Dr. Darren explained what cavities are, how we get them, and most importantly how we can prevent them. Since coming home from the visit with Dr. Darren our sugar craving 4 year old has avoided the coveted fruity pebbles and has opted for fruit for the win! Many thanks to Dr. Dickson and his amazing staff!! Looking forward to seeing you soon to fix the "cavity bugs"! Our whole family (Mom, Dad, 11yo and 4yo) appreciate that we can all be seen together under one roof!"- R.M. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2020
