Periodontal (gum) diseases including gingivitis and periodontitis are chronic inflammatory diseases affecting the supporting structures of teeth. They range in extent and severity. Fortunately, these problems are manageable and usually preventable.
Dental implants are replacements for roots of missing teeth. They can support a variety of reconstructions from single teeth to full dentures. With careful planning and surgical precision, implants can change the lives of people with some or many missing teeth.
