Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that fits, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. They are considered the best option for tooth replacement for patients who are candidates.

Treatment of Periodontal Disease

Gum disease is normally a “silent” disease, not causing any pain. Warning signs of gum disease can include persistent red, bleeding, and swollen gums.


Great experience with Dr. Sparks and his wonderful staff. They are all warm, friendly, welcoming and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Sparks.

  • Dental Implants

    Implants are very safe. They are considered the best option for tooth replacement for patients who are candidates. Implants have a success rate of 95% to 98%.

  • Soft Tissue Grafting

    Do you look older than you are because of gum recession?  Gum recession is the exposure of root surfaces, which make teeth appear longer. This can be caused by trauma from a tooth brushing habit or from gum infection. Exposed root surfaces are unappealing and leave you at risk for tooth sensitivity and decay.

  • Laser Treatment

    Surgical lasers have been used in dentistry for several years to remove excess soft tissue and soft tissue tumors. There are several advantages of removing this tissue by laser.

  • Crown Lengthening

    When a tooth has deep decay or a crack below the gum line, it will require exposing sound tooth structure to be properly restored. Your restorative dentist will recommend a surgical crown lengthening procedure to accomplish this prior to making the final restoration.

  • Assisting With Orthodontic Treatment

    Uncovering of impacted teeth to assist in tooth eruption. Laser removal of abnormal attachments of the frenum (the fold that connects to the lip or tongue). Gingival (gum) grafting to correct gum recession. Esthetic crown lengthening to correct an uneven gumline or lengthen teeth that appear too short. Placement of dental implants to replace missing teeth.

  • Oral Medicine

    Diagnosis and treatment of non-plaque related gingival (gum) diseases, such as Lichen planus

Periodontal Disease Albuquerque, NM

Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically-susceptible individuals. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. Learn more about periodontal disease
