Specialists in Periodontics

Our doctors are specialists in periodontics. They are committed to treating gum disease and saving teeth whenever possible. When teeth are missing or must be removed due to disease or decay, we can place dental implants.

Conservative Approach

Dr. Azar & Dr. Kepic work closely with your general dentist and other dental specialists to develop a comprehensive yet conservative approach to treatment. We have had great success over the years helping patients control periodontal disease and achieve optimal oral health.

We are committed not only to treating periodontal disease, but to helping patients maintain optimal oral health. Our office offers periodontal maintenance visits and home care instruction. There is also a growing body of research that shows links between oral and systemic health.

Periodontics

Periodontal disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. The gum, bone, and other supporting structures of the teeth are affected. The result will be tooth loss if untreated.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Procedures such as gingival grafts can improve the smile’s aesthetics after gum recession, which makes the teeth appear unusually long and gives the patient a prematurely aged appearance.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to speak, smile and eat again with confidence and comfort, dental implants are tooth replacements that look and feel similar to natural teeth.
