Your first appointment will consist of a comprehensive examination. The term periodontal disease actually encompasses a number of diseases that affect the supporting tissues around the teeth.- the gums and bone. Most tooth loss in adults is caused by this destructive process. A complete examination and charting of your conditions will determine the extent to which the disease has progressed. A broad range of therapy exists in periodontics; together, we will be able to discuss with you which options are available to assist you in maintaining your periodontal health. The benefits of your personalized treatment plan will be explained thoroughly.
Although our emphasis is on early treatment and prevention, our office utilizes the latest techniques to improve the health of your mouth after the disease has progressed, such as bone and gum regeneration, and dental implants. We strive to maintain and improve the health of your gums for comfort, esthetics and function.
