What Is Periodontal Dentistry?

Periodontics is that specialty of dentistry which encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes and the maintenance of the health, function and esthetics of these structures and tissues.


Dental Implants

A Dental Implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.



Biopsy is the process of removing tissue for histologic evaluation.

Crown Lengthening

Crown Lengthening is a surgical procedure exposing more tooth for restorative purposes by apically positioning the the gingival margin and removing supporting bone. Watch the short clip below for more information on crown lengthening.

Gum Graft

Gum Grafts are a type of dental surgery performed to correct the effects of gum recession. It is a quick and relatively simple surgery in which a periodontist removes healthy gum tissue from the roof of the mouth and uses it to build the gum back up where it has receded.


Frenectomy is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far. Watch the clip below to learn more about why proper frenulum positioning is important for dental health.


An extraction is the proper surgical removal of any particular item. In the framework of dentistry, this would perhaps most often refer to the extraction of teeth, perhaps due to severe damage or decay, severe traumatic injury to the tooth, or to reduce crowding. Watch the short clip below to learn more about how our skilled dentists can remove teeth with minimal discomfort.
