The primary goal in periodontal therapy, and dentistry in general, is to provide the patient with a healthy, disease free, functioning and esthetic dentition.

The types of periodontal treatments can range from removing and correcting disease from around the teeth to corrective, ‘plastic surgery’ type procedures to create a more esthetic and pleasing smile.

Many times dental treatment requires the coordinated efforts of the Periodontist and the General dentist. Sometimes an Endodontist (root canal), Orthodontist (tooth straightening), and/or Oral Surgeon is brought in to provide you with the most comprehensive and thorough treatment.
