Patients over the age of 35 now lose more teeth to periodontal issues than any other cause. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically-susceptible individuals. Bacteria found in plaque produce toxins or poisons that irritate the gums. They may cause them to turn red, swell, and bleed easily. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth causing pockets (spaces) to form.

Periodontic specialization has been the most effective way for me to make a difference in my patients' quality of life. Our guiding philosophy of practice is to treat our patients as we would like to be treated. So, to achieve that goal, we apply our clinical experience, care, skill and judgement using the latest innovations in technology. Our special field of interest is in soft tissue grafting and reconstruction for esthetic areas with dental implants.
