Drs. Colin Richman & Andrea Abelman:
Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, Roswell, GA
Healthy gums are a major part of a healthy smile. A periodontist can help keep your gums in optimal condition.
Certain symptoms, such as redness, bleeding, swelling or noticeable receding of the gums, may warrant a visit to the periodontist, the dental specialist who focuses on treating problems with the gums.
Periodontal (gum) care can range from non-invasive disease management to gum surgery to dental implants. We use the most advanced periodontics tools and techniques available, for example laser surgery. We can even use Pre-Orthodontic Periodontal Augmentation (POPA) to help you achieve the perfectly aligned smile of your dreams without risk of gum recession!
Your periodontist is a valuable member of your dental care team. Your periodontist can collaborate with your general dentist, along with any other dental specialists who are involved in your case, to ensure the best outcomes.
What are some signs of advanced gum disease?
As a chronic disease, many of the signs and symptoms of advanced periodontal disease are similar to the signs of infection or inflammation in other parts of the body. This includes gums that are red, swollen, painful or tender and bleeding during normal brushing, flossing, or chewing. Learn more of the signs and symptoms
