Periodontics

MIGUEL DEFINA DDS

Your teeth are only as strong as the gum tissue and bones that support them. Luckily, there is an entire branch of dentistry dedicated to making sure that the tissues around your teeth can stay healthy and stable throughout your life.

A periodontist may be consulted if there is some concern about the health of these supporting tissues. Using a combination of advanced cleanings, patient education, and sometimes even a surgical approach, it may be possible to stop the spread of gum disease and maintain a healthy mouth. 

We are also able to reposition or even graft to your existing gum tissue in order to preserve an area that may be affected by gum recession or trauma. Periodontists also routinely placed dental implants, allowing them to help replace teeth that are missing in conjunction with improving the health of what's already there.
