Dr. Roberto Porras, the founder, is a Houston periodontist who treats problematic periodontal cases for patients with severe gum disease or complex medical history. Besides being a specialist in the prevention/treatment of periodontitis, the dentist maintains and repairs dental implants. The procedures Dr. Porras performs are done under intravenous conscious sedation, eliminating the anxiety that comes with a dentist visit.
Periodontal diseases infect the gums, alveolar bone, and periodontal ligament. The immune system releases substances that destroy and inflame teeth structures to eliminate the bacteria. The process results in swollen/bleeding gums, loose teeth, gingivitis, or severe periodontitis. Since gum disease causes other dental problems, Texas Periodontal Associates: Dr. Roberto Porras DDS, MS, does a periodontal regenerative surgery to pull back the gum tissue and remove the disease-causing bacteria. The dentist uses membranes, bone grafts, or tissue-stimulating proteins to encourage the body’s natural ability to regenerate bone, improving oral health. The effectiveness of Periodontics depends on the patient’s willingness to follow careful oral care and a postoperative diet.
Dr. Porras uses dental implants to create a foundation for replacement teeth that feel, look, and function like natural teeth. With the implants, a patient regains their ability to eat anything and smile confidently. The periodontist surgically implants titanium posts into the jawbone where teeth are missing. From there, the team can replace single/multiple teeth, perform sinus augmentation, or correct deformities in the upper/lower jaw.
Texas Periodontal Associates: Dr. Roberto Porras DDS, MS, offers oral plastic surgery to lay the groundwork for cosmetic and restorative dentistry such as crowns, veneers, and bridges. The periodontist restores gum/bone tissue using an esthetic crown lengthening, frenectomy, functional crown lengthening, mucogingival surgery, ridge modification, and root recession repair. However, Dr. Porras performs a simple or surgical extraction when teeth are damaged beyond repair or growing out of place.
