What is Periodontics?
Periodontics is the field of dentistry that involves the gum tissue, ligaments, and alveolar bone, the bone which contains the teeth. Most often, patients are referred to our office because they have periodontal disease, or require gum-related surgery. Our goal is to provide this care in a warm, comforting environment. Our team of specialists is trained to handle all facets of periodontal care.
Why might Periodontics be needed?
You may require periodontics because you have gum disease. Gum disease requires consistent and aggressive treatment to prevent it from progressing. You may even require our services because of gum tissue-related problems, or conditions that need specialty care. With our advanced technology and techniques, we are able to provide the treatment that is needed to return your gums to good health in-office.
What makes you a good candidate for Periodontics?
You will come into our office for a consultation appointment before a treatment plan is created. Our goal is to provide the best quality treatment available to correct and enhance your smile and gums. Not only do we offer gum disease treatment and surgery, but we also offer smile enhancements and skin grafting for gum recession. Most people who require specialized care pertaining to the gum tissue in their mouth are good candidates for periodontal treatment.
What happens during a typical Periodontal procedure?
Whether you have been referred to our office, or are coming directly to us, you’ll first meet with our doctors for an exam and consultation. This allows us to determine the best type of treatment to help you achieve optimal oral health. Each patient is unique in what they both need and want for their smile. Some of our patients come into our office for cosmetic procedures, while others require routine periodontal care for advanced gum disease. Our mission is to provide this care and treatment to you in a way that is both comfortable and convenient no matter what work is necessary.
