So periodontists basically deals to treat or restore gum disease; any damage that's happened to the gum and the bone.
That can include some gum grafting, it can include restoring the bite, reducing the inflammation, basically just getting a sound solid foundation to support your teeth upon which your dental health can proceed.
A couple of tools that we use: one would be a cold laser that we use in our care to reduce the bacterial levels. We use this with deep cleaning to help keep the condition under control. Another tool would be magnification, either with a microscope or with some dental loupes glasses. And this allows us to magnify the site that we're treating to better detect and to have a more conservative surgical approach.
