Icon representing PeriodonticsThe teeth require the support of gum tissue and bone for healthy maintenance. The field of dentistry that specializes in the supporting tissues of the teeth and diseases that impact them is periodontics. When the gum or bone tissue requires treatment for health or cosmetic purposes, periodontics surgery may be required. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer advanced periodontics using cutting-edge dental technology at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.

Periodontics covers many conditions that impact the jawbone, gums and teeth. Periodontal disease is the foremost health concern for teeth and gums; gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss. However, periodontics is not only concerned with preventing gum disease. Periodontics surgery can be used to improve bone health or density to place dental implants or to remove excess gum tissue.

Dr. Vien Nguyen is an experienced dentist who uses the latest dental technology and surgical techniques for periodontics surgery. Our office in Federal Way is equipped with cutting-edge dental tools, such as our diode laser, CBCT and digital imaging, to perform precision surgical procedures on the teeth, gums and jaw. Not all dentists offer periodontics at their practice, due to the specialized equipment and training needed. If you are considering dental implants or need gum revision with oral or periodontics surgery, come see us at First Smile Family Dental.

Gum and Jawbone Oral Surgery

Reshaping the bone and gum tissue are required for many restorative and cosmetic procedures. Dental implants require enough healthy bone to support the implant, which may require bone grafting or a sinus lift to achieve in some patients. For cosmetic veneers or dental crown placement, crown lengthening may be required to remove excess gum tissue. Our team at First Smile Family Dental offers advanced periodontics surgery for the jawbone and gum tissue, including:

At First Smile Family Dental, we offer many specialized dental procedures at our clinic, all under one roof. If you are considering dental implants, cosmetic veneers or other dental procedures, you may need periodontics surgery in addition to your other treatments. We can offer all your services at one place – contact our office in Federal Way, WA, to schedule a periodontics consultation.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.
