Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the health of your gums and jawbone. The gums are important for the smile's appearance because they frame the teeth and protect the jawbone that secures and stabilizes the teeth. An estimated 50% of adults over the age of 30 have deteriorating gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease, if left untreated, can lead to cavities, jawbone recession, abscesses, bad breath, and tooth loss.
Patients can avoid both the physical and financial costs of these dental issues by getting periodontal treatment before the condition worsens. Our team expertly treats all stages of gum disease, from bleeding gums to full dental implant restoration.
