Your Information Source for Periodontal Health

Welcome. We look forward to meeting you at your first appointment and would like to welcome you not only to our website, but to our practice. We will make every effort to treat you as we would like to be treated ourselves.

We feel that it is very important for you to clearly understand why you have been referred for treatment. With that thought in mind, this website seeks to offer you detailed information on the procedures you are about to undertake. Many of you have been referred for one of the following:

Gum Disease
Gum diseases are the major cause of tooth loss in adults. The two main diseases affecting periodontal health are gingivitis, in which the gums tend to bleed easily with brushing, and periodontitis which results in boneloss around the teeth.
Dental Implants
Dental Implants involve the insertion of permanent tooth replacements in the upper and lower jaws to be used to support either fixed (permanent) bridgework or to help stabilize detachable (removeable) partial or full dentures.
TMJ Disorders
Orofacial Pain & Dysfuntion deals with a family of disorders involving jaws and jaw muscles (so called TMJ Disorders), tooth pains of non dental origin, headache and a host of other head, neck and jaw pains complaints.
Following the initial examination and consultation, a detailed treatment plan will be presented. The rational for treatment will be explained as well as any alternatives that may be available.

We look forward to a relaxed and pleasant visit with you. If there is anything we can do to help make your visit more comfortable or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Your questions and commments are always welcome.
