Periodontics is the dental specialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and other conditions that affect the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in plaque. When plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria irritate and inflame the gum tissues. If this condition is not treated in the early stage, called gingivitis, it can develop into periodontitis, which is the more advanced stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is characterized by

red, tender, bleeding, and swollen gums, while periodontitis typically involves gum recession and can eventually lead to bone loss and tooth loss. Gingivitis can usually be controlled and even reversed with additional professional cleanings and improved at-home oral care if the condition is diagnosed and treated early; periodontitis, on the other hand, generally requires more involved, frequent treatment. We are pleased to provide high-quality treatment for gum disease at our office to return your smile to good health.

In addition to treatment for periodontal disease, periodontics includes the placement of dental implants. Dental implant placement requires specialized, advanced training for optimal results.To learn more about periodontics and how we can care for your smile, we welcome you to contact us today.
