When your gum recedes, you are more at risk of tooth decay due to the root being exposed. Gaps and pockets begin to form and allow bacteria to pool and destroy the tooth. Early detection is critical in this situation. We are proud to be one of the only practices to offer the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, which is a scalpel-, suture-, and graft-free procedure used for correcting gum recession.
We can correct receding gums in as little as one treatment session with minimal discomfort to you. Most patients are back to normal light activities within a day or two of the procedure. If you’re interested in this state-of-the-art method to protect your teeth and enhance a more youthful and attractive look, contact us today at 985-532-3480, and we will be happy to discuss your options.

Like digital radiographs, digital x-rays result in lower radiation exposure for the patient, and also offer your dentist a more precise view of your mouth. Because the image is digitized, your dentist can zoom in on areas and provides more accurate diagnoses and treatment.

An intraoral camera is a pen-sized, camera tipped wand that is used to examine the mouth and take digital images. After the pictures are taken, they are sent to a computer unit where they can be further examined by our dental healthcare team. These images can easily be printed for you, sent to your insurance company and saved in our records. This tool also provides you with an honest survey of your mouth, and can help your dentist determine if your at-home dental routine is paying off.

There are many benefits to digital imaging. Digital radiographs allow us to see beyond what is visible to the naked eye. It enables our doctors to determine bone levels, examine the roots and nerves of your teeth, and diagnose lesions such a tumors or cysts. With digital radiography, patients are exposed 50 percent less to radiation. In addition, digital radiographs allow our doctors to easily store, transfer and send images to outside specialists and your insurance company.
