Periodontal disease is a serious condition that requires regular care and maintenance. Luckily, thanks to advancements in technology, we can now treat gum disease with lasers, such as LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure). The benefits of laser treatments like LANAP include very minimal pain, no cutting or sewing, stimulated gum regeneration, and reduced procedure and recovery time. Discover the benefits of laser gum treatment by calling us today at Lafayette Office Phone Number Lafayette Office Phone Number 765-447-9319.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Receding gums can be both a health concern and an esthetic one. Healthy gums protect the tooth from decay and damage. Without them, teeth are compromised and the smile is uneven. If your gums have receded due to disease, we can perform a gum graft in our office to protect your teeth and enhance your smile.
A gummy smile occurs when excess gum tissue covers the crown of the tooth, creating an unbalanced look. This condition can be corrected with crown lengthening right here in our office – just one of the many cosmetic periodontal treatments we offer to give you your best smile.
We are privileged to be a part of life-transforming dental implant journeys in our office every day! With dental implants, we are able to give patients their smile, health, laugh and their ability to enjoy food and social events back. Dental implants function and look exactly like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.

Meet Dr. Reef

I’ve had the privilege and honor to travel and work with the greatest and most world-renowned dental implant surgeons and restorative specialists from Switzerland, Australia, Japan, Brazil and of course the U.S.
