A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the placement and repair of dental implants, cosmetic periodontal procedures, and in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease.  All periodontists complete an additional three years of extensive training beyond dental school to earn a Certificate in Periodontics. However, only some periodontists earn the distinction of being named a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology like Dr. Shack, which signifies mastery of all phases of periodontal disease and its treatment, including dental implants. If you want to keep your teeth for life, or need to replace missing teeth with dental implants— completely reasonable goals in this day and age — you need to make sure the tissues that surround them are also healthy. Should gum problems arise, you may need periodontal therapy to restore diseased tissues to health. Learn more about periodontal and dental implant procedures by browsing our library below.

Our services include:

Treatment of Gum Disease

Treating gum disease starts with the removal of any plaque and hardened deposits (tartar or calculus) on the tooth root surfaces. This may be followed by other non-surgical treatments and/or periodontal surgery to remove diseased tissue and restore your mouth to the best possible health.

Implant Dentistry

Dental Implant Video

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer the comfort and security of a permanent replacement that looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve the tooth-supporting bone in your jaw that deteriorates when even one tooth is lost.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

The gum tissue that surrounds and supports your teeth plays a big role in how appealing your smile will look. Excess gum tissue, gum recession, and an uneven gum line are all problems that can often be successfully treated surgically at the dental office. Learn more about Cosmetic Gum Surgery.

Gum Grafting

If gum recession is affecting your health or your appearance, a routine surgical procedure called gum grafting may help. It involves carefully placing a small amount of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists — typically recommended to prevent further gum recession or to help cover tooth root surfaces that have become exposed. Learn more about Gum Grafting.

Tooth Extractions

There are times when it is in your best interest to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons, including: damage or trauma to the tooth; extensive gum disease; extensive tooth decay; or overcrowding. Learn more about Tooth Extractions.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting, a minor in-office surgical procedure, is commonly used in dentistry to correct deficiencies in bone quantity and to build support for teeth or dental implants. Learn more about Bone Grafting.

Treatment of Loose Teeth & Bite Problems

Periodontal disease is the most common cause of loose teeth, though placing too much stress on the teeth can aggravate the problem. Whatever the cause, loose teeth require immediate treatment. Learn more about Loose Teeth & Bite Problems.
