Prevent. Treat. Care.

Why is it so hard to find the best oral care with the best customer experience? Usually, it’s one or the other. At Piedmont Periodontics, we combine both to the best of our abilities. Our doctors are second-to-none in training, expertise and experience; our technology is state-of-the-art (including digital radiographs and a PerioLase MVP-7 laser) and our healthcare staff makes it their mission to make you as comfortable as possible (yes, especially during surgical procedures).

Our Services


LANAP stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. This is a modern, minimally invasive approach to treating gum disease where a state-of-the-art laser is used to eliminate the bacteria that cause gum disease. No cutting or stitches are required and it leads to an easier recovery for patients.

Osseous surgery (Gum surgery)

As a practice that limits our expertise to periodontics and implant dentistry, we are true experts when it comes to gum health. There are many reasons that you may need gum surgery including periodontal (gum) disease or excess gum tissue. The goal of osseous surgery is to eliminate bacteria and create an oral environment that best allows you to keep your mouth healthy for the rest of your life.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting may be necessary if you are planning to get a dental implant or have disease around teeth where bone has been destroyed. Bone grafting involves the use of bone which is harvested from elsewhere in your body or received from a donor. The bone graft is placed over the damaged bone and bonds with your own bone to provide a stable foundation.

Gum grafting

When gum tissue recedes (pulls away) or is not attached in a healthy way to the underlying teeth and bone, a gum graft may be necessary to restore health. Gum grafting can be completed with your own gum tissue, or in many cases, donor tissue can be used to minimize post-operative discomfort.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a fantastic solution to replace missing or diseased teeth. Implants have numerous components with the foundation being the implant ‘post’ which is a titanium screw that is placed in the bone. This is a biocompatible replacement for a missing tooth root. Once your implant is integrated with the bone, you will be referred back to your general dentist to connect the abutment and crown which look and function exactly like a natural tooth.

Crown Lengthening

If you have excess gum tissue or disease that causes inflamed gum tissue, this procedure can realign your gums to ensure a healthy and natural smile. This procedure can be completed to treat disease, or for aesthetic reasons.

Scaling and Root Planing

This procedure is a non-surgical option when gum disease advances and it becomes necessary to remove bacteria from below the gum line. This is a great option to treat gum disease when the disease is in its early stages or a patient’s medical history is too compromised for gum surgery.

Periodontal Maintenance

The best treatment for gum disease is to have outstanding oral home care from the start. Brushing twice per day for 2 minutes and flossing at least once per day are an integral part of keeping your teeth for the rest of your life. If gum disease is present, professional cleanings may be necessary to restore your oral health and maintain it over time. Our licensed dental hygienists will assess your gum health and provide a specialized cleaning to remove plaque and tarter from around your gum line. Once the plaque and tarter are removed, your teeth will be smoothed by polishing them.

Oral cancer screenings

Screening for oral cancer is one of the most important parts of our commitment to your health. Oral cancer is often painless and is usually treatable when caught early. As part of every exam in our office, we complete an oral cancer screening to assess parts of your mouth that are difficult to monitor yourself.


Lumps and bumps in your mouth are nothing to be ignored. If you are referred by your dentist for any concerning lesions in your mouth, or one is found during a routine exam in our office, we are equipped to complete a biopsy and receive a diagnosis to best treat the disease. We work with highly trained oral and maxillofacial pathologists who share our dedication to your oral health.

IV sedation

We understand that many people are nervous when seeing their dentist or a periodontist. We take pride in offering various sedation options, including IV sedation to help our patients be as comfortable as possible. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral, and IV sedation can be utilized with many of our procedures to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
