Many people have heard the word periodontist, but they don’t know what a periodontist does. A periodontist performs the same general dentistry techniques that a normal dentist would, but a periodontist also provides the extra care that can only come from extensive experience in deep gum, teeth, and jawbone care. We specialize in treating gum disease, gingivitis, gum grafting procedures, and dental implant services. If you want a dentist who knows the most important things about your gums and teeth, a periodontist is who you should call. There are many things a periodontist can do for you, but here are a few of the more common treatments and procedures.
If you want a deep clean: We know how to perform the deepest clean possible for your gums and teeth. Our team can remove bacteria from the space in between your gums and teeth. If you have bad plaque or tartar built up, we can provide normal cleaning and polishing, with additional scaling and root planing as needed for more serious cases.
If you suffer from gum recession: If your gums are receding and you don’t know why, we can give you a thorough check up and find out the reason this may be happening. Whether or not you know the reason already, we can provide treatments to help stop gum recession and procedures to encourage regrowth of your gums, like gum grafting and guided tissue regeneration. As a periodontist, we can perform the procedure in such a way that your gums will recover quickly.
If you have bone damage from periodontal disease: Periodontal disease causes a wide array of issues in oral health, but bone damage is one of the worst. If you have suffered from bone damage due to periodontal disease or another injury, we can perform a bone graft to replace missing bone and a bone surgery to reshape damaged bone areas. This care can be complex, but it is also necessary to ensure a long, strong oral health life for your mouth. Additionally, if you have lost a tooth or teeth, we can replace it with dental implants in order to prevent this bone loss.
If you have gum swelling and bleeding and don’t know why: We can check out your gums and tell you the reason you are experiencing swelling and discomfort. Inflamed gums can be a sign of periodontal disease or another bad infection. We can find the reason behind why your gums are inflamed and provide you will the care it will take to remove bacteria and ensure the returned health of your gums.
As a periodontist, we can help you with all these problems and more. We can also provide you with cosmetic gum and bone procedures. If you do not like the way your gums recede or how your teeth look, we can provide a solution and give you a better appearance and more confidence. No matter what your dental hygiene or oral health needs are, we can offer you quality care.
