Why see a Periodontist?

The goal of periodontal therapy is to allow you to keep your teeth and your smile all your life.

More specifically, it allows to stop the progression of gum disease, to strengthen your gums and to replace if necessary missing teeth with implants.

In most cases, with appropriate treatments and your cooperation, it is possible to keep your teeth for life.
