Periodontists in North York

Periodontists are trained in treating diseases and conditions related to the soft tissue of the mouth. Periodontists also provide treatment for peri-implant disease, which can occur after dental implants are used for tooth replacement.

Treating Periodontal Disease

Gum disease is highly prevalent, with seven out of ten Canadians suffering from some form of it in their lifetimes. The gums are structurally important for the overall health of the mouth. When they are affected by gum disease, the stability of the teeth is at risk.

Periodontists are highly skilled in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and other periodontal conditions. Our periodontists can offer surgical and non-surgical treatment options for gum disease. Some of the treatment options available include:

  • Scaling and root planing, which remove plaque and tartar from under the gum line
  • Pocket depth reductions, which limit the space available for plaque and tartar to build up between the gums and the teeth
  • Grafting, which transfers healthy gum tissue to areas where the gums are thin or have receded
  • Regeneration, which stimulates growth in areas that need to be repaired
