DR. HOWARD MARSHALL, DDS
Not all cases are the same, and people have different types of infection, different stages of gum disease, and bone loss. We treat them completely and work also with the physician if we suspect diabetes.
Other offices extract more teeth, but Dr. Marshall tries to save as many teeth as it's possible!
Dr. Marshall would like to help you with all his skills, but saving borderline teeth often requires bone grafts, and soft tissue grafts, and often bite adjustment to even out stresses on certain teeth. It may require joining loose teeth. Missing teeth will need replacement.
So we will do whatever you feel you want and help you any way we can.
The more teeth you lose, the more later dental replacement of those teeth costs, so it is better, to save as many teeth as possible!
Mainly Pocket Elimination - Early and moderate. Case types 1 and 2.
Deeper pockets, more difficult to save, loose teeth, often bad bites with heavy bruxing damage.
Often require many bone grafts, extraction of hopeless teeth, and socket bone grafts to build up bone for later implants.
Normal - Bone Losss
