What Our Guests Are Saying...

What is an Periodontist?

Periodontists are dental specialists that focus specifically on diagnosing, preventing and treating periodontal disease. In addition, periodontists also specialize in treating oral inflammation and performing dental implants.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, has the potential to create a wide range of oral health problems. If left unchecked, gum disease could potentially lead to the loss of some or all of your teeth, and a periodontist is your best bet in preventing this from happening.
