What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease refers to an oral infection that can damage the gums, roots of the teeth, and the underlying bone that supports them. It is more commonly referred to as “gum disease.” It typically occurs in two main stages: gingivitis (inflammation or bleeding gums) and periodontitis (where bone loss seen).

What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?

At first, the symptoms are mild and include red, swollen, and tender gums that bleed easily while cleaning. Eventually, pockets of bacteria can form between the teeth and gums, the teeth can destabilize, and this can ultimately lead to tooth loss.

What does it mean to be a board-certified periodontist?

Board certified periodontists are members of a distinguished group of practitioners who have made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty. It represents a personal and professional commitment to the standards of periodontics and continued growth and education. This certification allows patients to feel confident that they are receiving the highest quality of care.

Are periodontal treatments covered by insurance?

Yes, many periodontal treatments are partially covered by insurance, but the amount can vary from policy to policy. Before committing to a procedure, our team will be happy to go over your coverage with you so you know exactly what to expect.

What can I expect at my appointment?

Your first appointment will primarily revolve around our team getting to know you and learning about the current state of your oral health. We’ll perform an exam, take some X-rays, and ask about any symptoms you’ve been experiencing. It will mostly be a fact-finding visit so we can start putting together the ideal treatment plan.
