A Healthy Mouth

Periodontal disease destroys the bone and tissue that supports your teeth and can lead to tooth loss. This can occur without feeling discomfort. The loss of bone and receding gums caused by gum disease may lead to a loss in function and detract from the aesthetics of your smile. As a periodontist, Dr. Ficca has extensive training in non-surgical and surgical approaches to treat gum disease and help maintain a mouth.

Restore Your Smile and the Function of Your Bite

Whether you are missing a single tooth, have damage to the majority of your teeth, or are unhappy with your dentures, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. Dr. Ficca can use this well-established treatment to give you back the appearance and strength of your natural teeth.

Repair Your Gums and Bone

If you’re experiencing gum recession, Dr. Ficca can perform a gum grafting procedure to grow new gum tissue and protect your dental roots and bone. He can also graft bone to strengthen areas where Charlotte patients have already lost some of their tooth-supporting structure, to help strengthen and maintain teeth.
