Treatment for Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease Austin TexasDr. Robert L. Machen takes a comprehensive, yet conservative approach to the treatment of our patients – especially when it comes to dental implants and periodontal disease. If you’ve been affected and need treatment, there are many periodontal procedures, both surgical  and non-surgical, that we can use to restore your oral health.

We’ll begin with a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and jawbone, as well as a complete review of your history and current situation with both you and your dentist to get a full picture of your condition. We’ll then discuss your options, which may include common periodontal procedures like:

  • Scaling and root planing
  • Tissue regeneration
  • Pocket elimination surgery
  • Dental implants
  • Continuing care options

Whatever we settle on as far as treatment goes, we will stay with you through every step of the process – ensuring your comfort, keeping you informed and providing you with the highest level of care possible. At the end, Dr. Robert L. Machen, DDS MS, a board certified Austin Periodontist, will ensure that you walk away with restored oral health and beautiful teeth that will make you want to smile!
