First Things First...


Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively on the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal, or disease, and in the placement of dental implants.

Some Available Features of Our


Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a treatment to cover exposed tooth root surfaces. Receding gums is usually caused by multiple factors and can occur with or without periodontal disease.

Regenerative Procedures

Your periodontist may recommend a regenerative procedure when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed due to periodontal disease. These procedures can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue.

Periodontal Pocket Procedures

Your bone and gum tissue should fit snugly around your teeth. When you have periodontal disease, this supporting tissue and bone is destroyed, forming “pockets” around the teeth. During a periodontal pocket procedure, your periodontist folds back the gum tissue and removes the disease-causing bacteria before securing the tissue into place.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening reduces gum tissue and shaves down bone when necessary so more of the tooth is above the gum’s surface. A properly fitted crown allows for better oral hygiene and comfort.

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling & Root Planing may be recommended if your mouth has signs of chronic periodontal disease. These procedures can help stop the harmful effects of this condition and keep your mouth healthy.


Some individuals may have a “gummy” smile because the teeth appear short. In fact, the teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, your periodontist performs a gingivectomy procedure to remove the excess gum tissue.

Bone Grafting

A dental bone graft is a procedure performed to increase the amount of bone in a part of the jaw where bone has been lost or where additional support is needed.


What is a frenectomy? A frenectomy — sometimes called a frenulectomy — is an oral surgery procedure that treats lip-tie or tongue-tie. During the procedure, your surgeon cuts or modifies a frenum (also called frenulum) — a band of connective tissue that joins two areas.

More About Periodontics

What Is the periodontics Process Like?

There are a variety of ways periodontists can treat periodontal disease. Following dental school, periodontists receive up to three additional years of specialized training in both surgical and non-surgical periodontal procedures to treat gum disease. Periodontists are also experts in replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

While some general dentists treat less serious periodontal cases, many will refer their patients to periodontists for the more challenging periodontal cases. Similarly, while some general dentists perform dental implant procedures, many will refer their patients to periodontists for the more challenging implant cases as well.

In addition to handling challenging periodontal and implant cases, periodontists also provide a variety of other specialized services. These include scaling and root planing (in which the infected surface of a tooth’s root is cleaned), root surface debridement (in which damaged root tissue is removed), oral inflammation treatment, and cosmetic periodontal procedures.

some of the reasons to get a periodontal exam...

Another reason people may schedule their first visit to a periodontist is because they have developed symptoms that are commonly associated with periodontal disease. If you notice any of the following symptoms, this may be an indication that you have developed periodontal disease:

Tender or swollen gums
Gums that bleed easily
Chronic halitosis* that persists even after brushing your teeth
Gum recession
Teeth that have become loosened
Unexplained mouth pain
Mouth sores
Pus between your gums and teeth
Change in bite or fit/feel of dentures
Unexplained tooth loss

*Halitosis: a persistent, unpleasant odor in exhaled breath, commonly called “bad breath”.
