Dentist Dunwoody: Teeth Get the Glory

mature-female-smilingA beautiful smile is not just about healthy looking teeth.  Your gums are equally as important.  Yet one in every two American adults 30 and over has periodontal disease.[1]  2009 and 2010 estimates indicate 47% or 64.7 million American adults, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis.[2]  In adults 65 and older, disease rates increase to 70.1 percent.[3]

A beautiful smile consists of teeth and gums living in perfect harmony with each other.  But teeth often steal the credit when it comes to beautiful smiles.  Our periodontal practice has always been on the leading edge of patient care.   With our in-house periodontist, we can specialize in treating gum disease and periodontal plastic surgery.  We have always incorporated the newest technology and technique to patient care, but with our periodontal services, we can to help patients achieve the best dental health possible in the most comfortable, relaxing environment possible – here in our own office.

With that in mind there are many new procedures we can perform in our office, including gum reshaping, grafting, perio-supervised root planing and scaling, more comprehensive pocket depth monitoring and reducing the improper brushing techniques that may have gone unsupervised when we send a patient out to a referring specialist.

If we can be of service please contact us for your complimentary consultation.
