Each person’s smile is different… but every attractive smile has two things in common: A full set of pearly white teeth, and the right amount of healthy pink gum tissue to show them off. For the most part, your general dentist is the healthcare provider who takes care of your teeth. But when your gums need some extra help, it’s time for a periodontist. At the offices Concerned Dental Care, our team of highly-skilled professionals include periodontic specialists, offering you the convenience of complete dental care under one roof.
Periodontists are dental professionals who focus on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the gums, as well as other structures that support the teeth. They can recognize and treat the early stages of gum inflammation before it becomes more advanced; perform minor surgery to resolve complicated cases of periodontitis (severe gum disease); use lasers or gum grafting techniques to restore the appearance of a smile; and even place dental implants in the jaw, when a tooth can’t be saved. For these reasons, periodontists are sometimes called “the plastic surgeons of dentistry.”
But periodontists aren’t just concerned with outward appearances. Maintaining healthy, disease-free gums is a key part of good oral health. And when you consider that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, it’s easy to see how important healthy gums really are.
We’ll give you good reason to smile!
