Periodontics

Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry focused on the gums and jawbone. In addition to resolving health issues, periodontal procedures can be used to enhance the appearance of patients' smiles. Common treatments include:

Strong, healthy teeth rely on healthy gums. Gum disease is very common and can typically be resolved or managed. The key to successful intervention is to detect periodontal disease in its earliest stages. Otherwise, patients may require more costly, extensive restorative care.

Many patients underestimate the role that our gums play in creating a beautiful smile. A gummy smile can look child-like and make even the whitest, straightest teeth look unhealthy or underdeveloped. By creating a pleasing gum-to-tooth ratio, a periodontist can enhance your entire smile.

Meanwhile, periodontal health is strongly linked to overall health. Treating gum disease can reduce your risk of developing serious health issues such as diabetes and heart disease.
