Dentist In Memorial City
If you are looking for a board certified, highly skilled periodontist in Memorial City, who also provides leading-edge care, visit us at Contemporary Implantology, Inc. As a skilled and experienced periodontist, Dr. Shere offers comprehensive treatment to address periodontal disease and performs a spectrum of surgical procedures to help maintain optimal oral health and to facilitate the precise placement of dental implants.
Our accomplished and experienced periodontist, Dr. Yusef Shere, earned his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX, graduating with the Merrit-Parks Award for his outstanding performance in the field of periodontics. He then began his residency in periodontics at the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. Dr. Shere went on to earn his master’s degree in periodontics, with a focus on dental implants. He keeps pace with advances in his field through active membership in a number of local and national associations, including The American Academy of Periodontology, The Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the Greater Houston Dental Society.
As your periodontist, Dr. Shere offers a comprehensive menu of services to keep your gums healthy. Our team will perform a comprehensive periodontal examination to assess the presence of gum disease, the areas affected by it and if you are in an early or more advanced stage of the disease. That information will be used to formulate the best plan for care. The initial stage of gum disease is gingivitis, which can be reversed with early intervention. Scaling and root planing can halt the progress of gingivitis, before it progresses to more advanced stages of periodontal disease. Pocket elimination surgery can also address plaque and tartar buildup, which are the primary causes of gum disease. If periodontal disease advances, we provide a range of non-surgical and surgical treatment to halt the progression of the disease and to rebuild the soft and hard tissues where we can. We strive to provide our patients with the highest quality of care, while ensuring their comfort throughout every procedure. At Contemporary Implantology, Inc., we offer precise and gentle treatment with laser technology and offer sedation methods to keep you most relaxed.
Periodontal care can also be integrated into a cosmetic, restorative or prosthodontic treatment plan. Crown lengthening treatment can improve the appearance of a “gummy smile” and make it possible to restore a tooth that is too short or broken below the gum line. To replace missing upper posterior teeth with dental implants, a sinus augmentation may be necessary. This procedure lifts the sinuses upward to make room for the implant.
Contemporary Implantology Inc. offers the most advanced approach to tooth replacement, by placing dental implants. A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root, fusing with the jawbone to provide support for a customized dental prosthetic. Dental implants make it possible to replace a single missing tooth, without compromising any adjacent teeth, and prevent bone loss from occurring after a tooth is lost or extracted. Dental implants have a 98% rate of success, and patients who have received dental implants report an improved quality of life following treatment. Implants can be placed to support individual crowns, fixed bridges, or an entire set of teeth as well as provide added stability to removable dentures.
