GUMS DISEASES

DR. GABRIELA GUEVARA

A confident, radiant smile indicates health and well being. Unfortunately, most people will need treatment for periodontal gum disease in their lifetimes.  This is nothing to be ashamed of, but it can be handled easily through the work of a periodontist so that you can maintain that healthy grin and enjoy your favorite foods.
Periodontists offers a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planning (in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned) or root surface debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed). They can also treat patients with severe gum problems using a range of surgical procedures. In addition, periodontists are specially trained in the placement and repair of dental implants.

 The best solution is prevention, but if there is loss, our periodontist can help!
