Inflammatory periodontal disease is among the chronic diseases of aging, which also include: Cancer, Osteoporosis, Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Research finds that Periodontitis may affect as many as half of Americans over the age of 30.* Early intervention prevents the progression of periodontal and other inflammatory diseases.* While these facts support periodontal therapy as a medical necessity, we believe such care should be part of personalized medicine. Periodontal Medicine and Surgical Specialists, LTD identifies each patient’s unique needs and creates an individualized plan of care that is personalized, preventative, predicable and proven.

The doctors at Periodontal Medicine and Surgical Specialists, LTD have board-certified specialty-based training, the clinical experience and surgical expertise to help you achieve the best possible oral health.
