What Does a Periodontist Do?
In its simplest terms, periodontists are dentists who treat gum (periodontal) disease which is mainly caused by plaque bacteria, and affected by other factors such as pregnancy, medications, smoking, diabetes, heart disease, and other health conditions. In addition to treating gum disease, periodontists offer a variety of cosmetic procedures such as gingival recontouring / reshaping of the gum to enhance the smile line, gingival augmentation / gum grafting to cover expose and sensitive root services of the teeth and dental implants to restore missing teeth in a permanent fashion.
To provide you with a better understanding of periodontics, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to periodontics are discussed.

Why Do I Need a Periodontist?
Periodontal therapy is often recommended by your dentist (or other health care professional) in order to re-establish the health and stability of the supporting structures of your teeth. This health and stability is vital to ensure the quality, longevity, and esthetics of your dentition and dental restorations. In addition, your gums and supporting structures of your teeth are the cornerstone of oral health and the foundation of your daily life whether it be eating, speaking, or smiling. Your mouth is more than your center of expression, your instrument of communication, and your vehicle of nutrition… it is your health. Periodontal disease is an irreversible process that has several relationships with your health, so proper attention must be given to your periodontal therapy.
