Frequently Asked Questions

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

According to the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), a periodontist is “a dentist who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal diseases and the placement of dental implants.” They have completed three additional years of training after graduating from dental school.

Periodontists treat cases that can range from simple gingivitis to advanced cases of gum disease that can cause bone and tooth loss. They offer a wide range of treatments, such as deep cleaning of the infected root surface to a regenerative procedure like the reversal of bone loss. They are also very well trained in the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants. They also offer cosmetic series such as gum grafts to cover the root services, fix the gummy smiles, frenotomies and biopsies.

To simply state it, Periodontists are like gum gardeners, meaning they concentrate specifically on the gums and the bones that support the teeth.

If you are experiencing any of these signs and symptoms, it’s important to schedule an appointment at our office, WY Implants and Surgical Arts, without delay:

  • Bleeding gums- this is one of the most common signs of periodontal ( gum) infection.
  • Buildup of plaque and calculus- despite our best efforts, unfortunately, plaque and tartar can easily build up in our teeth that need to be removed by a professional.
  • Mobile teeth are a sign that you are starting to lose bone, and your bite may be shifting.
  • Receding gums can be due to aggressive brushing, or it can be from a gum infection.
  • Bad breath- this is a beginning of an infection n the gum tissues.
  • Missing teeth or you can’t function correctly and need dental implants- not being able to chew can affect your dental health and overall health. To function properly, you need healthy teeth or dental implants.
  • Ill-fitting dentures- can cause dental pain in the jaw and indigestion as you can’t chew properly. They are dishearting as they move in your mouth. Dental implants can give better retention and stability to your denture.
  • Failing implants such as bleeding, pus, or your implant is loose- an unhealthy implant can cause bone loss and cause loss of function.
  • Related Health Conditions- Heart Disease, Diabetes, smoking, osteopenia or osteoporosis, and many more are highly correlated with periodontal gum infections. The gum infection can spread through the bloodstream and affect other parts of the body.
