Expert Care for Your Gums

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, affects millions of people worldwide and can lead to serious health complications if left untreated. Our center specializes in a comprehensive range of periodontal treatments designed to combat gum disease, repair damage, and prevent future issues. From non-surgical methods to advanced surgical interventions, we are equipped to address all stages of periodontal disease.

Signs You Need to See a Periodontist

Preventing gum disease is critical for maintaining your overall oral health. However, recognizing the early signs that warrant a visit to a periodontist can be the key to preventing advanced periodontal disease. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it's time to call your periodontist:

  • Bleeding Gums: Experiencing bleeding during brushing or flossing is not normal; it's often the first sign of gum disease.
  • Receding Gums: If your teeth appear longer or you notice your gum line pulling away, this could indicate gum recession.
  • Persistent Bad Breath: Chronic bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth can be a sign of bacterial infection under the gum line.
  • Loose Teeth: A feeling of looseness in one or more teeth can signal that the supporting structures are being compromised by gum disease.
  • Swollen, Red, or Tender Gums: Any changes in the color or comfort of your gums can be early indicators of gum disease.

Our Comprehensive Gum Treatments & Solutions

Our approach to gum disease treatment is comprehensive, offering both surgical and non-surgical options based on the severity of the condition and the patient's preferences. Non-surgical treatments include deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line. For more advanced cases, surgical interventions such as pocket reduction surgery and regenerative procedures are available to restore gum health.

Some of our specialized services include:


We offer LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) to treat gum disease with minimal discomfort and rapid healing. LANAP ues precise laser technology to target and eliminate infected tissue, fostering regeneration without the need for incisions or sutures. This state-of-the-art procedure not only effectively combats gum disease but also promotes natural healing, allowing you to enjoy a healthier smile faster and with less pain compared to traditional surgery. Transform your oral health with LANAP.


A gingivectomy is a precise surgical procedure aimed at removing excess gum tissue. This treatment is often recommended for patients with severe gum disease or as a cosmetic procedure to enhance the appearance of a "gummy" smile. Our skilled periodontists perform gingivectomies with utmost precision, ensuring optimal results and a quicker recovery.

Gum Recession Treatment

Gum recession is a common condition where the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth, exposing the roots and leading to sensitivity and potential tooth loss. Our gum recession treatments, including tissue grafting, aim to restore the gum line to its natural position, protecting the roots and improving the aesthetics of your smile.

Tissue Grafting

Tissue grafting is an effective solution for treating gum recession and loss of gum tissue. By transplanting healthy gum tissue to areas of deficiency, we can enhance the gum's appearance, reduce sensitivity, and prevent further recession. Our periodontists are experts in various grafting techniques, ensuring a natural-looking and durable result.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to prevent gum disease?

Preventing gum disease involves:

  • Regular brushing and flossing to remove plaque
  • Using an antimicrobial mouthwash
  • Eating a balanced diet and avoiding tobacco
  • Scheduling regular dental checkups and cleanings
  • Adopting these practices can significantly reduce your risk of developing gum disease.

Can periodontal disease affect my overall health?

Yes, periodontal disease has been linked to several systemic health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, among others. The bacteria from infected gums can enter the bloodstream, potentially affecting other parts of the body. Maintaining healthy gums is crucial for overall health.

How often should I see a periodontist?

The frequency of visits to a periodontist depends on your individual oral health needs. Patients with active periodontal disease may require more frequent visits for monitoring and treatment, typically every 3-4 months. Those with healthy gums or in maintenance phases might visit less often. Your periodontist will recommend a personalized care plan based on your condition.

What treatments are available for periodontal disease?

Treatment options vary based on the severity of the disease and can include:

  • Professional cleaning and scaling to remove plaque and tartar
  • Root planing to smooth root surfaces and discourage further buildup
  • Antibiotics to control infection
  • Surgical treatments, such as pocket reduction surgery or gum grafts, for advanced cases
  • Laser therapy for minimally invasive treatment of gum disease

Can periodontal disease be cured?

While early stages of gum disease (gingivitis) can be reversed with proper care, more advanced stages (periodontitis) can be managed effectively but not entirely cured. Regular professional cleanings, combined with diligent home care, can halt the progression of the disease and maintain your oral health.

How do I know if I need periodontal care?

Signs that you might need periodontal care include:

  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Swollen, red, or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Receding gums or teeth appearing longer
  • Loose teeth or changes in your bite

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to consult a periodontist for a comprehensive evaluation.

What is periodontal care?

Periodontal care focuses on the health of your gums and the structures supporting your teeth. It involves preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease to protect your oral health and overall well-being. Effective periodontal care combines professional treatments with good oral hygiene practices at home.
