Periodontics is the field of dentistry that deals with the health of your gums. While many people associate periodontics with gum infections and disease, it also includes other procedures to keep your gums healthy. We provide periodontal services in our office and work closely with periodontal specialists who provide support and specialized treatment when needed.
Sometimes a child can be born “tongue-tied.” This term refers to a condition in which the frenulum, a piece of tissue that connects two areas in your mouth, is too tight. In the case of children who are tongue-tied, the frenulum beneath their tongue is too tight. To relieve the condition we can surgically remove the frenulum.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are intensive cleaning techniques used to remove plaque, tartar, and other irritants from the roots of your teeth. We do this to prevent tooth decay and also to reduce the chance of gum infections.
We can perform most extractions in our office, but in complicated cases we may refer you to a local periodontist or oral surgeon.
The best defence against gum infections is regular dental examinations. Call to book one today.
