More About Periodontics


Periodontics is the branch of dentistry specializing in areas of the mouth that surround and support the teeth. These areas include your gums, alveolar bone, cementum and your periodontal ligament. 

If your gums are inflamed, or tend to bleed quite easily, you may need to see a periodontist to identify potential damage that could lead to tooth loss. Along with inflamed gums and bleeding, here are other signs of periodontal disease:

Bad Breath

Receding Gums

Tooth Sensitivity

Abscesses

Loose Teeth

Our team will diagnose your individual situation and recommend an appropriate treatment or procedure. Procedures can be either non-surgical or surgical depending on the best option for you.

To learn more about our periodontist and how we can help you on the path to oral health, please call our office to speak with our scheduling coordinator.
