Periodontists Treat the tissues that support and surround the teeth

Part of achieving the smile you desire is having strong, healthy gum tissue — supporting and surrounding your teeth. Our periodontists specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal disease, which, if left untreated, can damage the attachment fibers and supporting bone that hold your teeth in place.

Our periodontists also specialize in dental implants, working as part of a collaborative team of prosthodontists and oral surgeons to bring you this highly effective, aesthetically pleasing, low-maintenance alternative to dentures.

You might be referred to one of our periodontists for periodontitis, gingivitis, gum recession, or a variety of cosmetic gum procedures. Each of our periodontists works closely with experienced dental hygienists to maintain the health of your gum tissue.

In addition to dental school, periodontists complete three additional years of specialized dental training, ensuring that you receive state-of-the-art periodontal care.
