Dr. Heather Richardson, Centennial Of Denver Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in Centennial, CO
Our practice philosophy is based on working together with our patients and other dental providers to satisfy their needs by offering a variety of quality periodontal and reconstructive therapies. We have positioned ourselves to provide cutting edge treatment including conventional and laser periodontal therapies, soft and hard tissue grafting and management, and dental implants.
Each and every patient offers a new and unique challenge. Creating an individualized treatment plan that suites the patients needs is both complex and essential. Working through these plans with the patients and watching the patients goals come to fruition is extremely gratifying. We are currently accepting referrals and new patients and would be more than happy to see you for an exam and consultation!
Periodontal disease is characterized by a presence of disease-causing bacteria, inflammation of the gums, and loss of bone around the teeth. The goal of treating gum disease is preventing the progression of periodontal disease and eliminating the inflammation in the mouth. Treating the periodontal disease will not only reduce the risk of gum disease and bone loss, but also reduce the chances of developing other serious illnesses that may be related to the inflammation in your mouth.
We utilize the LANAP Laser Treatment for periodontal disease. LANAP is the first and only FDA cleared laser procedure for the treatment of moderate to severe gum disease. Unlike traditional osseous surgery, LANAP does not require the use of a blade or sutures. Instead, LANAP utilizes laser technology to gently remove the infection without harming the healthy gum and bone. Click here to learn more about LANAP.
