What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a dental speciality that focuses on the health of the gums and surrounding tissue. A periodontist is a dental specialist who first graduates from dental school to become a dentist and then does a three-year residency to specialise in the field of periodontics. This offers a periodontist the experience as well as the knowledge to treat all sorts of gum ailments, carry out periodontal surgical procedures and place dental implants efficiently.

Gum Diseases

The principal causative agent for gum diseases is bacteria-laden plaque. Dental plaque accumulates on the surface of your teeth and gums and metabolise sugars to release toxic by-products, which causes gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. Swollen, painful and bleeding gums can be an indication of gum diseases. These gum diseases can lead to teeth loss, which compromises oral as well as overall health. At Wilmington Periodontics and Implants, our services and treatment help you fight against gum diseases and improve your oral health.

Dental Implants

Are you tired of living with missing teeth and seek a permanent teeth replacement solution? At Wilmington Periodontics and Implants, we offer you the best solution for teeth replacement – Dental Implants. Dental implants placed by our Delaware periodontist are medical-grade titanium pieces that are placed inside your jawbone with the help of a small incision in your gums. Once the dental implants heal, they are used as a foundation to place dental prosthesis. Dental Implants in Wilmington provide you with a permanent and fixed solution to replace lost teeth.

Treatment for Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is a condition where your gums are excessively visible when you smile. This can happen due to various reasons, which may include having short or smaller teeth. A gummy smile can also be caused due to shorter or underdeveloped upper lips and excessive vertical growth of the upper jaw. Other than this, various medications and medical conditions that lead to gum enlargement can also cause your gummy smile. We at Wilmington Periodontics and Implants provide you with a solution to treat your gummy smile. 

Periodontal Surgery and Bone Grafts

Dr. Javier Sanz, Delaware periodontist at Wilmington Periodontics and Implants, routinely performs various periodontal surgeries like gingivectomy, gingival reshaping, sinus lift, bone grafting etc., to treat multiple periodontal diseases and conditions and bring you one step closer to a better oral health.

I’ve had lots of dental work in my lifetime and have seen many dental professionals (I’m on my fourth implant). Dr. Sanz is truly one of the best I’ve seen. He is patient and takes time to explain everything, even throughout the dental procedure. I also love Dr. Sanz’s staff, they are always a pleasure to see. The office is newly renovated and importantly, very clean! I highly recommend Dr. Sanz.
