Cook Periodontics in Wilmington and Leland, NC specializes in gum grafting to treat recession. Also known as soft tissue grafting, this procedure is performed when there is major gum recession or exposed tooth roots. Tissue is taken from a healthy area of the mouth and then grafted to the area where it is missing or lacking.
Cook Periodontics and Dental Implants in Wilmington and Leland, NC office a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium which allows them to fully integrate with the jaw bone. The base of an implant acts like a real tooth and is rooted inside the bone and gums. A permanent crown is placed over the implant to restore chewing function. Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing as well as regular, bi-annual dental check-ups or every 3-4 months as determined by your doctor.
