Our practice goal is to provide you with the best possible care available in Periodontics and Dental Implants in Cambridge, in a respectful and relaxed environment. As a periodontal and dental implant specialist, our Cambridge periodontist has advanced training in the treatment of gum disease, placement of dental implants, and cosmetic periodontics (enhancing the appearance of your smile). During your first visit to our office, Cambridge periodontist will review your medical and dental history, x-rays and will perform a comprehensive clinical examination. Afterward, he will discuss with you your total oral condition, and all treatment options available. In some cases, he may need to consult with your general dentist or other dental specialist prior to presenting treatment needs. This initial exam should take no more than 1 hour. If you have been referred to our office regarding Periodontal Disease, please call to schedule your initial examination as soon as possible with our Cambridge periodontist. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss, but with early detection and treatment, your natural teeth can be saved. In addition to our periodontal expertise, some offices refer patients to us for high-quality dental imaging.
