.OUR SERVICES

.

We provide a broad range of therapy in periodontics. No single treatment approach can provide the only means of treating any one, or all periodontal conditions. One treatment may be appropriate for one section of the mouth, while another approach may be suitable elsewhere.

Periodontal diseases are infections that can be influenced by risk factors such as smoking, genetics, medications, diabetes and other systemic diseases. Chronic periodontal infections may also increase your risk of developing systemic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

The goals of periodontal therapy are to preserve your natural teeth and to maintain and improve your periodontal health, comfort, function and esthetics. Regenerative procedures, using bone grafts, growth factors, or tissue-stimulating proteins, may also be recommended to reverse damage caused by the progression of periodontal disease. Dental implants replace missing teeth, restoring natural appearance, comfort and function.

A thorough, systematic periodontal examination, including review of your medical and dental history, clinical examination and updated dental x-rays, will help us develop an appropriate treatment plan for you. With the achievement of a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal and systemic health, you will possess the keys to smiling, eating and speaking with comfort and confidence.
