Periodontics in Coquitlam

Periodontists focus on the health of the jawbone and gums, which act as supports for your teeth. In addition to dental school, periodontists receive extra training for their specialization. Your dentist may refer you to a periodontist for specialized, expert care.

Why See a Periodontist?

Periodontists know how to diagnose problems with the gums and jawbone and can help you come up with a treatment plan. They are helpful in treating gum disease and specialize in dental implants. Sometimes, to receive a dental implant, the jawbone requires a bone graft, and that’s where a periodontist can help.

Gum Health

Taking care of your gums is important to help prevent gum disease. It starts with taking care of your teeth by regularly brushing and flossing. Getting rid of bacteria that create plaque is something you can do at home and at the dentist with regular cleanings. If your gums are red and puffy and bleed easily, you may be developing or have already developed gingivitis. Speak to your dentist, who can provide treatment or refer you to a periodontist.
