What Is A Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dental specialist focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Their expertise extends from understanding the biology of the gum and bone supporting your teeth to the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease.
Our experienced periodontist in Beverly, MA utilizes advanced diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities to manage periodontal health. Our goal is to help you maintain healthy gums, which play a crucial role in your overall dental health and the aesthetics of your smile.
Understanding Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a preventable condition that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and has links to other systemic health conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
Comprehensive Periodontal Services
Our highly skilled team offers several periodontal services designed to meet your individual needs, whether you're in the early stages of gum disease or require more advanced treatment. Our services include:
Gum Graft Surgery
The Gum grafting procedure addresses gum recession, a common issue in periodontal disease, by utilizing tissue from the palate or a tissue bank to cover exposed roots and promote natural tissue regeneration. Gum graft surgery aims to reduce sensitivity, prevent further recession, and enhance the aesthetics of your smile, offering patients increased comfort and a boost in smile confidence post-surgery.
Gum therapy encompasses various treatments to manage and prevent gum disease. At the heart of our gum therapy services is the procedure known as Scaling and Root Planing.
This deep cleaning treatment meticulously clears away plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line, halting infections in their tracks and promoting healthier gum tissue. By addressing the root cause of periodontitis, Scaling and Root Planing help prevent the further progression of gum disease, which if left untreated, can lead to loose, shifting teeth and ultimately tooth loss.
Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Cosmetic crown lengthening, performed by our skilled periodontist, reshapes the gum line to expose more of the tooth's crown, enhancing the appearance of a "gummy smile." By carefully removing excess gum tissue, and sometimes bone, we not only improve your smile aesthetically but also facilitate the placement of dental crowns or other restorations, ensuring a natural look and secure fit.
Regular cleanings and check-ups to monitor and maintain your gum health, preventing the recurrence of gum disease.
