Periodontics 101

Periodontics is an oral health specialty that focuses on restoring the health of the gums. Prioritizing treatment for these tissues can matter more to your appearance and overall well-being than you may realize. Complications from advanced gum disease can cause significant issues, including tooth loss and complications with your overall health!

At FLX Perio, we provide specialized care for patients who have been referred by a general dentist. In addition to providing more complex care, including oral surgery, we can provide ongoing support to manage periodontal disease and prevent new complications.

Why Some Patients Benefit From Visiting With A Periodontist

Gingivitis is a common threat that many people will deal with at least once. Because timely care can reverse this condition, your gums can return to good health and be free from further harm when care is provided in time. However, there are some who will not receive support before their condition worsens. Advanced gum disease, known as periodontitis, is more difficult to manage, making long-term health issues a concern. This problem can lead to the destruction of tissues that support teeth, which builds to tooth loss. Studies have also linked it to worsening risks from heart disease, diabetes, and other general health conditions. Having an experienced professional take on these threats makes you less vulnerable to the serious concerns of periodontitis.

  • Laser care using the LANAP protocol to address bacteria buildup and infected tissues
  • Work with experienced doctors to place dental implants used to support permanent prosthetic restorations
  • Full arch and full smile restoration using the advanced Confident Smile™ treatment approach, which uses digital imaging technology and 3D printing to improve the patient experience
