Dr. Powell performs the following grafting procedures.
Free Gingival Grafting
Enjoy the beauty of Dr. Powell’s ultra-thin free gingival grafting technique that blends the grafted tissue with your natural gum line.
Connective Tissue Grafting
When the root structure is exposed allowing room for decay, infection, tooth sensitivity, and cosmetic issues, Dr. Powell may perform this grafting technique to recover the root structure.
A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring. When the jaw opens and the tongue slides into the back of the throat, the airway narrows, forcing air through the small opening. This creates vibrations in the throat that can prevent you from getting a sound night’s sleep.
Dr. Powell treats snoring with a custom-made appliance that holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall open during the night and cause the airway to collapse. This easily removable device maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.

Did you know not all dental scanning technology is the same? Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans offer a more in-depth and accurate 3-D scan of both your soft tissue and teeth than traditional scanning equipment. A higher resolution and quicker scan means your dentist will have critical information about your oral health before beginning your procedure. Here are five advantages you will receive by your dentist using this innovative technology in your next dental visit.
