What is Periodontics?
It is the specialty of dentistry that it’s objective is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the tissues that surround and support the tooth or its substitutes (implants). As well as the replacement of teeth and support structures by regeneration and implantation.
Good oral hygiene does not only refer to the care of our teeth but to the care of our mouth and gums, which is usually a neglected or incorrectly treated area.
There are multiple brushing techniques and attachments that provide us with different benefits. Each technique and attachment is personalized with each patient according to their needs, it is very important to massage our gums correctly so that they remain healthy.

What are Periodontal Diseases?
The most common periodontal conditions are: gingivitis and periodontitis. That is, when there is redness, inflammation, pain, bleeding and / or infection in the gums.
It is the inflammation of the gums caused by the accumulation of bacteria on our teeth. Once the disease begins to progress, it manifests itself as redness, swelling and gum bleeding caused by poor hygiene.
At this point we still have time to solve the problem with periodontal treatment since the damage is not so severe.
It is the next stage of gingivitis, once we have reached this stage, it is very difficult for the damage to be reversed since at this point, there is mobility in the teeth, which most likely indicates bone destruction and can cause the loss of one or several teeth.
The plaque has become calculus (better known as tartar) and has attached to the surface of your teeth not only above gum level but also underneath it. Once this tartar is removed, it is very likely that the tooth has irreversible damage if not treated on time
What Patients Say
Had a great experience. Went in to have 3rd molars extracted. Had them both out in about 10 minutes! Felt very comfortable there. They have underground parking, so you don’t have to leave your car on the street. The price was great (compared to U.S. costs). They were very professional. I’ll be back soon for the other side!
Again I have to say the best place for dental work. Amazing staff, dentists, and assistants. I’m a huge chicken when it come to dental work. Not once did I feel uneasy or even pain. I had 8 lower teeth pulled. Go back in November for implants.
