If you wonder why dentists always ask if you have been flossing, it is because we are worried about the health of your gums. Periodontics is a dental specialty focused on the gums and other various supportive structures for your teeth. We pride ourselves on being able to assess, diagnose, and treat any gum related issues so that your teeth can be supported by healthy and happy gums. Whether it is offering a simple clean or a much-needed surgery, we are here for you.
We know that not everyone has the best relationship with flossing, and while we are without question going to remind you to do it, our group understands that life happens. Your gums act as an incredibly important support structure for your teeth, which is why we are so committed to ensuring the health of your gums. As a start, we might focus on offering you an extensive cleaning below the gumline. Just under the gum line, it is possible for bacteria to collect and cause problems for your gums, and as a consequence of that, your teeth. We focus our efforts on clearing out these bacteria so that you can feel confident in the health over your gumline.
Sometimes our gums are not resilient as they can be, and they will start to recede down your teeth. Our periodontists hate to see this happen, but we are happy to offer you a variety of services and surgeries to help preserve your gums for the foreseeable future. We can work our magic to make it easier than ever for your gums to reattach to your teeth so that they can continue supporting them. No matter what your gum health ends up looking like, our experts are here to help support you and your supportive structures every step of the way.
