The term "Periodontology" refers to the dental specialty that pertains to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Periodontal Disease (PD) that affects the gums and underlying jawbone.   The gum tissues surround the teeth, and the underlying jawbone anchors teeth firmly in place.  Drs. Dee Nishimine, & Sophia Tseng have all completed specialty residencies in Periodontics and dental implants.  Periodontists have completed several years of extra dental training and are concerned with maintaining the function, health, and aesthetics of your smile.  Today's Standard of Care for replacement of missing teeth should be with dental implants.   

Reasons for periodontal implant treatment

Today, the "Standard of Care" is that all patients should have a complete periodontal examination or periodontal probing to determine if periodontitis is present.  We want you to maintain your natural teeth as long as possible and have the missing teeth replaced with dental implants, if desired.  This will give you better chewing function, phonetics, and aesthetics.

Periodontal Disease (PD) is a progressive condition which begins with mild gum inflammation called GINGIVITIS.   BACTERIAL PLAQUE is the major causative factor of Periodontal Disease (PD).  It is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and should be taken very seriously.  Periodontal Disease (PD often called gum disease) is typically signified by red, swollen, painful, or bleeding gums, and, in some cases, there are no noticeable symptoms.

Periodontal Disease (PD) is progressive. It is essential to remove the bacterial plaque and calculus to halt the spread of the infection.  Your removal of bacterial plaque daily will help you save and maintain your natural teeth and dental implants.  "Brush and Floss Daily."
