Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a holds a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Gum Disease

Gum Disease is a common dental problem that is usually the result of poor dental hygiene. If gingivitis or periodontitis is present, it is imperative to immediately get treatment to rectify the issue, as well as a rededication to vigilant brushing and flossing.

Bone Grafting

When a tooth has been missing for a long time, it can result in jawbone deterioration. Dental bone graft surgery replaces the missing bone and further stimulates the growth of new bone, creating a strong foundation to support dental implants.

Gum Recession Treatment

Traditional gum recession treatment, while effective, involves a painful procedure with a lengthy recovery process. We’re proud to offer our patients a scalpel-free and suture-free restorative gum recession treatment with minimal downtime.

We aim to serve you by understanding and treating your periodontal needs so that you may achieve and maintain good oral health. To do this, we will help you understand and appreciate your present dental conditions, learn about possible solutions to your dental problems, and decide which treatment option is the most appropriate for you. Your treatment will be performed utilizing the best care periodontal science has to offer.

Our Mission

To provide excellent quality care in periodontics & implant dentistry in a friendly and comfortable environment. We strive for personalized patient care through open communication and education for both patients and referring healthcare professionals to provide an enhanced treatment experience and success.
