When the plaque and harmful bacteria that lead to periodontal disease move beneath your gumline, the effects may cause bone loss. Sometimes the deterioration of bone tissue is mild, requiring smoothing and soft tissue grafting of your gums. However, in the case of advanced periodontitis, effects may include tooth loss and severe bone damage, requiring regeneration. Dr. Acharya may recommend a regenerative procedure when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed due to periodontal disease. These procedures can repair some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue.

Welcome To Acharya Periodontics
What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
Diagnosis and Management
A thorough examination and accurate, specific diagnosis is the foundation of effective treatment.
Very often, early stages of periodontal disease are effectively treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy.
When necessary, Dr. Acharya and her team can walk you through a surgical treatment plan to restore healthy gums and teeth.
Dental implants are a common procedure of permanently replacing missing teeth without affecting other neighboring teeth.
