Rather than waiting for injuries and accidents to occur to your smile, it is important to be proactive and take the necessary steps to protect your mouth from any potential damage that can occur. However, not all forms of damage can be prevented, as oral accidents and injuries can arise even if you do everything correctly. In situations where your gum tissue is damaged, periodontal treatment will be required.

Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry in which individuals suffer from infections or damage to their gums and supporting structures around their teeth. Periodontists receive additional training beyond dental school to allow them to apply various periodontal treatments to improve an individual’s smile. Furthermore, our periodontist is trained to treat missing teeth in your mouth with dental implants to replace any lost teeth that you may have had.

To help properly treat periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, it is important to inspect your mouth for any signs of damage or infection. If you notice any common symptoms including frequently bleeding gums or bad breath, you may be suffering from gum tissue infections that will need to be treated with a periodontal procedure.
