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.

Yomi is a dental technology system that uses robotic assistance to help dentists perform dental implant surgery with greater accuracy and precision. The Yomi system includes a robotic arm that is integrated with a computer and 3D imaging software to create a virtual map of the patient’s mouth and the desired implant location. The system then uses this map to guide the dentist’s hand movements during the surgical procedure, providing real-time feedback to ensure precise placement of the dental implant.
