Bailey Implants of Provo and Salt Lake City, Utah has given people a bright new smile that they can be confident in for many years. Unlike your typical dentist we provide more than just a mouth cleaning and new toothbrush. We provide up to a full mouth of dental implants, natural and synthetic bone grafting, fiberotomy, crown lengthening and periodontic procedures for gum recession disease.
George M Bailey, DDS is one of the few periodontists in the nation that has been certified by Dr. Chao himself for the Chao Pinhole Technique. The Chao Pinhole Technique is the best and least invasive treatment for gum recession disease. Unlike other gum recession treatments, no donor gum tissue grafting , incision, or stitching is used with the Chao Pinhole Technique. A needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue, therefore the already existing tissue is simply adjusted to fix the problem. It has comparable results to other techniques used and its a considerably less painful experience and it has a faster recovery time for the patient. There is no discomfort from stitches because none are used and the technique requires no scalpels. With the use of existing gum tissue the results are natural looking and aesthetically pleasing.
Dental Implants are perfect for those who have single or congenially missing teeth. We take the time to properly diagnose our customers to ensure that we provide them the best experience with their dental implants for years to come.
Fiberotomy is absolutely vital for those who have had orthodontic treatment or those who will have their braces removed soon. It is a procedure that consists of detaching some of the tooth bone ligaments to prevent teeth from moving back to their previous position before the orthodontic treatment. A very small instrument is inserted between the gum and the tooth (the gums are numbed before the procedure) and some of the ligaments are detached. The tiny ligaments then reattach to the tooth without being stretched.
Bone Grafting is another procedure provided by Bailey Implants that adds to the bone area around teeth to replace bones that have been destroyed by bacteria. We provide both synthetic (manufactured from non-bone sources ie coral) and natural bone gratfing (bones from human cadaver sources ) at our offices.
Crown lengthening is a procedure that restores tooth with decay below the gum line, a tooth that has broken below the gum line, to remove access gum to restore normal appearance or to restore teeth that are too short.
At Bailey Implants we are very passionate about giving our clients a safe and comfortable experience at our offices. We understand that for some, going to the dentist can be quite nerve racking, especially when a client is seeking the treatments we offer. We provide both local numbing and IV sedation when desired. At Bailey Implants the comfort of our clients is the number one priority along with giving them a new found confidence in their smile. Because we treat everything from gum recession to tooth loss and due to Dr. Bailey’s over 35 years of experience in the periodontics field, we can fix almost any problem that comes our way!
