Periodontics

At Charming Smiles Dental Center we are concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of functional and structural diseases of the periodontal membrane and related tissues that surround and support the teeth. Degeneration or inflammation of these tissues can be caused by various systemic or local diseases or by poor oral hygiene. Most commonly, periodontal diseases are caused by hardened bacteria, called bacterial plaque, which adheres to teeth and destroys periodontal tissue. We perform Crown Lengthening, Scaling, Root Planning (Deep Cleaning), and Gum Recontouring, and use Arestin, a commoly used antibiotic in many of our procedures.
