I went to see Dr Jennifer Merritt for an implant. She did a bone graft before she could do the implant. She as well as her staff did a wonderful job and made sure I was comfortable during and after the procedure. I was given a prescription for pain and an antibiotic. My dentist back home said she had done a great job and my mouth healed very nicely. Dr. Merritt and staff were very professional. I would recommend them very highly. I plan to go back very soon for implant.

Update 3/16/13: Dr. Johnson took the time to explain his reasoning behind his canceling my gum surgery appointment on the same day and gave me a refund for the appointment. I appreciate the integrity of his willingness to do so. I do not fully understand his reasoning, but efforts like this to refund the appointment and explain his reasoning are admirable.
Tips & Advices
To prevent periodontal disease, it's important to brush your teeth after meals, since this prevents food debris from getting lodged between your teeth and gums and causing plaque. Daily flossing should also be a key part of your oral health regimen, since this removes food particles and plaque that a toothbrush may not be able to reach. Smoking increases the risk of gum disease, so avoid this habit if you want to maintain healthy gums.
Certain periodontal treatments are completely painless and gentle enough to be administered without anesthesia. Treatments such as deep scaling, root planing, and those involving surgery are performed with the help of a local anesthetic or a sedative.
One of the most common types of treatments performed by periodontists is gum grafting. This is a surgical procedure that grafts your gum tissue to reverse gum recession, and it can prevent further recession and bone loss. Periodontists also perform laser treatment for gum disease, dental implant installation, pocket reduction procedures, and dental crown lengthening.
In periodontal treatment that involves surgery, many periodontists use a local anesthetic that works to completely numb the area being treated. Oral or IV sedation can also be used, and with this approach, you'll either be completely asleep, or drift in and out of sleep while the procedure is being performed.
Gum disease can be treated with the help of a dentist or periodontist. If gum disease is in its early stages, a professional cleaning will remove tartar before it leads to infection that can cause a more serious condition. With advanced cases of gum disease, infected gums can be treated with scaling and root planing.
