I was recommended to Dr. Shannon by my dentist. I needed a dental implant on a front tooth. I was extremely nervous about the procedure. Dr. Shannon took the time to explain everything in detail, also his staff were all friendly, and professional which helped with my anxiety. I had my painless implant, and just got my permanent cap. I am so happy with the results. Especially the abutment along the gum line. It was a very positive experience.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an ideal solution if you are missing one or more teeth. As a periodontist, Dr. Shannon specializes in the treatment planning and placement of dental implants. Once in place, the implant will serve as the root component of a dental prosthesis. Because it becomes a part of you, an implant is the next best thing to your natural tooth.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting involves adding bits of bone or grafting whole pieces of bone from other parts of the body to the jawbone. This is done to regenerate bone tissue lost due to periodontal disease or other factors. On the other hand, bone contouring involves removing bone from the jaw to reshape it for cosmetic or functional purposes.

Gum Grafting

Gum graft surgery may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.
