We specialize in Cosmetic Dentistry but we do so much more.
Periodontal treatment is necessary when various conditions affect the health of your gums and the regions of your jawbone that hold your teeth in place. Retaining your teeth is directly dependent on proper periodontal care and maintenance. Healthy gums enhance the appearance of your teeth, like a frame around a beautiful painting. When your gums become unhealthy, they can either recede or become swollen and red. In later stages, the supporting bone is destroyed and your teeth will shift, loosen, or fall out. These changes not only affect your ability to chew and speak. They also spoil your smile. Adults over the age of 35 lose more teeth to gum diseases than from cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and Periodontal disease is by daily through tooth brushing and flossing techniques and regular professional examinations and cleanings.
Tooth loss can have a far-reaching effect on your dental health and personal appearance because when you lose one or more teeth, the remaining teeth can drift out of position and lead to problems such as more teeth loss, decay and gum disease. Due to new technology, it is possible to replace missing teeth and implant a working and natural looking tooth. This is a surgical procedure done under local anesthesia and involves the periodontist implanting a small metal anchor right into the jaw bone for security and stability. A crown is later placed on that post and you once again have a normally functioning tooth.
Our patients have some lovely things to say about us
I was so thrilled with the results of my new smile. Dr. Sherman was able to get my work done just in time for my wedding. I still find it hard to believe that I am the proud owner of straight, good-looking teeth. I use to be very shy and did not want to talk to people with my old smile. The work that Dr. Sherman has done has given me the confidence to smile at every opportunity. I can't thank Dr. Sherman and his team enough. They've changed my life.Jay, Patient,
"When I first went to see Dr. Sherman I was really nervous about having my front teeth done. I had my front teeth done by another dentist and my teeth did not look good, but thanks to Dr. Sherman and all the wonderful staff I had my smile back. Dr. Sherman did outstanding job on my front teeth. I will recommend him to all my friends. I am finally proud of my smile! Money well spent!”Rauria, Patient,
