Periodontics is the dental specialty focused exclusively on the inflammatory diseases that destroy your gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.
Periodontics treats gum diseases from mild gingivitis to the more severe periodontitis. The wide range of treatments includes scaling and root planing of infected root surfaces, the removal of damaged gum tissue, and the reversal of lost bone and tissue. Additionally, periodontics includes the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
I have been to Dr. Johnson to have my teeth cleaned and worked on twice this year. He is nothing but professional and very caring! I leave there each time knowing that I have received the best care for my teeth. Dr. Johnson and his staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in the door until the time I left. I have recommended Dr. Johnson and his staff to many of my friends and I know that they are satisfied with his work as well!
Erik and staff are wonderful. They are professional, friendly, quick, and thorough. I have gone to Erik for years and recently convinced my boyfriend, who previously hated going to the dentist, to switch and he has now recommended him to his friends and coworkers as well. Erik is straight forward yet possesses great bed side manner.
