Our Services

Periodontic Services

Periodontic treatments are used when you have developed gum disease. Gingivitis is the most common form of gum disease and can be reversed with professional treatment and good oral habits at home. If gingivitis is left untreated, it can turn into Periodontitis, which is much more serious and could even cause you to lose your teeth. Five Gables Family Dentistry offers several services used to help repair gum disease, including Scaling and root planing, tray delivery systems, gum grafting surgery, laser treatment for gum disease, dental crown lengthening, dental implants and pocket reduction procedures. We know that we can work together with you to solve your periodontic issues and preserve your smile.

Invisalign

If you aren’t satisfied with your teeth but the thought of wearing braces has stopped you from making a change, Invisalign is perfect for you!  Invisalign uses clear, plastic alignment trays to gradually move your teeth into their prescribed position.  The trays are practically “invisible”, comfortable, and removable during meals.  You will get a new set of custom-made trays approximately every two weeks during treatment.  You will end up with the beautiful smile you desire without the hassle of a mouthful of metal!

Periodontic

You have probably heard of Gingivitis and know that it is a mild disease of the gums that can be reversed through professional treatment. What you may not know is that if Gingivitis is left untreated, it can become a very serious gum disease called Periodontitis. When you have Periodontitis, plaque and bacteria have developed below the gums, collecting in pockets next to the roots of your teeth. If severe enough, you could even lose a tooth, or many of your teeth. At (company name) we offer treatments to help repair Periodontitis and hopefully prevent the loss of your teeth.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a comfortable alternative to braces.  Like braces, you will gradually have your teeth adjusted through gently applied pressure, but unlike braces, you will not have to give up popcorn, candy, gum, or any of your favorite foods!  With Invisalign, you wear clear, customized appliances called aligners.  The aligners are almost undetectable and can be popped in and out easily, virtually eliminating any interference to your daily life.  Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners that will move your teeth ever so slightly, until at the end of treatment, your teeth will be exactly where they should be.
