Diagnosis & Treatment of Periodontal Disease

We provide comprehensive periodontal care to our patients. About half of the population is affected by some form of periodontal (gum) disease. Our goal is to provide you with thorough understanding of your dental issues and what can be done to help you achieve periodontal health.

Dental Aesthetics

Your smile matters. We offer a variety of procedures, including gum grafting, aesthetic crown lengthening and anterior dental implants, to help enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants may be used to replace one or more missing teeth or to support a denture for improved function and comfort. We work closely with you and your dentist to develop a customized plan that will optimize your function, aesthetics, and health.

What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems adults face, but gum disease can begin at just about any age. Gum disease often develops slowly and without causing any pain. Sometimes you may not notice any signs until the disease is serious and you are in danger of losing teeth.

What is Gum Grafting?

Gum grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. During gum graft surgery, your periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate or another donor source to cover the exposed root.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
