Periodontists are specialists in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum diseases and oral inflammation, and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Following successful completion of post-graduate training a periodontist becomes eligible for the American Board of Periodontology examination. Successful completion of certification results in Diplomate status in the American Board of Periodontology.
Optimal oral health often requires a team approach with the dentists, hygienists, specialist and patient all contributing. At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry we take care of more than appearance of your teeth. Our team will provide you with comprehensive care, giving special attention to maintaining your gums and structures around your teeth, for a long-lasting, healthy smile.
Inflamed or bleeding gums are common, but not normal. Because periodontal infection grows under your gums, sometimes you can have no symptoms at all. A beautiful smile is made not only of beautiful teeth, but also healthy gums and bone to support them.
We keep ourselves up-to-date regarding equipment and periodontal procedures. You can be certain you will receive state-of-the-art care in our office.
