A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants. Also, periodontists can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to improve your smile.
Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or to schedule an appointment with Stoner Periodontic Specialists.
Here is an overview of our periodontal treatments.
If missing teeth or dentures are a current problem for you there is an alternative that might be right for you: dental implants. Dental implants are one option for replacing missing or diseased teeth.
Excessive gums, more commonly termed the “gummy smile”, can be simply, quickly and comfortably corrected using LASER therapy.
The incorporation of LASER technology in periodontal therapy has provided for state-of-the-art safe, effective, less invasive treatment to correct a variety of periodontal and esthetic concerns.
Sometimes teeth do not erupt through the gums for a variety of reasons, requiring the assistance of a periodontist. The procedure to expose a tooth that has failed to erupt into the mouth is called tooth exposure or uncovery.
Gum recession, or root exposure, is a disease or pathological process that is characterized by visible roots, sensitivity to cold or touch, and in extreme cases, loose teeth.
