Periodontist Q&A

Why would I need a periodontist?

Over time, unhealthy gums can negatively affect your dental health. A periodontist specializes in gum health. Periodontal (gum) disease is a serious condition and a leading cause of adult tooth loss. When your gums become infected with bacteria, they can spread to your periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. As a periodontist, Dr. Mirmadjlessi monitors your gum health and treats any diseases affecting your gums. 

Without proper care, your gums can become inflamed or infected, negatively affecting your dental and systemic health. Periodontal disease is associated with several conditions like arthritis, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and stroke. 

What treatments do you provide as a periodontist?

Dr. Mirmadjlessi offers periodontal gum treatment that prevents or treats periodontal disease. As a periodontist, he also offers cosmetic and restorative procedures that restore a receding gumline or remove excess tissue that leads to a gummy smile. 

Treatments offered at East Brunswick Periodontics and Dental Implants are surgical and nonsurgical. LANAP® laser dentistry revolutionizes periodontal care. If you have pockets that have formed because of gum disease, the laser energy removes any unhealthy tissue without the incisions and blood loss of traditional scaling and root planing. The laser carefully cleans root surfaces and has a feature to remove tartar from your gumline.

Dr. Mirmadjlessi can also reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.

What are the signs that I need a periodontist?

Everyone benefits from good gum care. Dr. Mirmadjlessi helps promote good preventive care, so you avoid disease.
