Gum Therapy and Periodontal Care
Swollen, red, and bleeding gums are signs of an unhealthy mouth. In addition to bad breath, these conditions can affect your total body health, contributing to heart disease and other serious illnesses. Thanks to the many advanced treatments our periodontists offer, Andover Dental Group can help you reverse — and manage — your periodontal disease. Soft tissue grafts can cover tooth roots, decrease sensitivity, or replace missing tissue from a receding gum line. Grafts can be taken from the roof of your mouth or other areas. Our Andover periodontist’s expert techniques can create an effective outcome that you will enjoy for years to come.
Highly skilled and friendly, our periodontal team’s dedication to extraordinary patient care and comfort ensures high-quality results with a gentle touch. Request an appointment to find out more about how our periodontal team at Andover Dental Group can help keep your gums healthy.

By incorporating advanced technologies and the latest anesthetics, the Andover Dental Group multi-specialty team of dentists can perform root canal therapy and root canal surgery that is nearly pain free.
After your comprehensive initial exam, one of Andover Dental Group’s endodontists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that optimizes your oral health. It’s this personal touch that has made Andover Dental Group the practice of choice for patients throughout New England.
At some point in their lives, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. A wisdom tooth, also called a third molar, can grow sideways or become trapped under the gums. It can also become infected, decayed, or cause the rest of your teeth to move out of place.
At Andover Dental Group, our team of oral surgeons have performed many wisdom teeth extractions. Most wisdom teeth surgery procedures go very well, take less than an hour, and can be done right in our offices. Before removing your wisdom teeth, we’ll walk you through every step of the procedure and answer all of your questions about wisdom teeth extraction.

For the greatest accuracy in treating your mouth, the skilled endondontists at Andover Dental Group practice a number of microscope-assisted endondontic techniques. In addition to increasing magnification, the microscope also improves illumination to give the Andover Dental Group endodontic team a level of vision unattainable by the human eye. Additional benefits of our microscopic assisted endodontics include:
- Improved accuracy of microsurgical incisions through magnification.
- The ability to use smaller instruments.
- Less trauma to your mouth’s soft tissues, resulting in better healing and minimal need for secondary procedures.
Microscope-assisted endondontics is just one of the many advanced technologies the Andover Dental Group endodontics team uses to provide you with the highest quality of dental care.
If you are interested in finding out more about the many advantages of microscope-assisted endodontics, please contact our Andover endodontics office today.

“TMJ” stands for the temporomandibular joints, which are the small joints in front of each ear that attach your lower jaw to your skull. They allow you to open and close your mouth, chew, speak, and swallow. TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including major trauma such as an auto accident, teeth-clenching, or systemic joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
There are different types of TMJ problems that respond to a number of TMJ treatment methods, ranging from very conservative therapies to more aggressive approaches. Our multi-specialty dentists at Andover Dental Group are highly skilled in TMJ treatments. Together, we’ll work closely with you to determine the best course of TMJ treatment to alleviate your pain.
Silent Nite® is a customized dental device that treats sleep apnea by positioning the lower jaw forward, thus increasing space in the breathing airway, reducing air velocity and soft tissue vibrations. In keeping the airway open, breathing is normalized and snoring and sleep apnea are controlled.
Silent Nite is made of a soft inner layer that touches the teeth and gums, and a hard outer shell that resists breakage. Specially designed connector pieces allow strategic positioning of the lower jaw. The device fits unobtrusively in the mouth, allowing for a comfortable, safe night’s sleep.
