Periodontics

We specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, this includes the treatment of oral inflammation, cosmetic periodontal procedures, severe gum problems or disease using a range of surgical procedures, scaling and root planing (in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned) or root surface debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed). Placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants. On top of that we examine the gums, checks to see if there is any gum line recession, assesses how the teeth fit together when biting, and checks the teeth to see if any are loose. Through a small measuring instrument called a probe we place it between the teeth and gums to determine the depth of those spaces, known as periodontal pockets; this helps to assess the health of the gums. X-rays may also be taken to observe the health of the bone below the gum line.
