Periodontics, or periodontology, is an American Dental Association accredited dental specialty focusing on the supporting structures of the teeth, including bone and gum tissues.
Commonly known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a set of inflammatory conditions that leads to unhealthy tissues surrounding teeth, with results ranging from bad breath to bleeding, pain and tooth loss. These effects are sometimes linked to other health issues like diabetes, heart disease and stroke. A periodontics specialist focuses in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease as well as cosmetic periodontal procedures and in the preparation and placement of dental implants to help complete your journey toward optimal health. With your needs in mind, we will discuss all your treatment options before determining the best course of action for optimum health and harmony.
