Periodontics is the specialty field of dentistry which diagnoses and manages the treatment of the gingiva (gums), teeth, bone and implants in your mouth. We are dedicated to the well-being of our patients providing both non-surgical and surgical solutions to diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
