Periodontics

Gum disease is a serious problem and something that impacts the lives of many adults. Symptoms include red or swollen gums, loose and/or sensitive teeth, pain while chewing, tender or bleeding gums and longer appearing teeth meaning that the gums are receding. A periodontist or dental professional will be able to diagnose the condition and help you to find reasonable treatment options. These problems can be caused by a variety of things including neglect.

If bacteria, food and other substances are left in the mouth for too long, it can form into plaque. In most cases, plaque can be removed by routine brushing and flossing. However, if neglected, that plaque can harden to form tartar which can only be removed by a cleaning from a dentist. If left untreated, conditions can get worse and require more invasive treatment options including surgery.

Dr. Dison and her team have worked in periodontics for years and understand the causes of these conditions and how to best treat them so that they not only are eliminated, but do not return again. Throughout Miami and South Florida, our patients rely on us for elite care as well as helpful guidance as they look for effective ways of improving their oral health. We provide our patients with:

These options have been tested and utilized thousands of times and are proven to get the job done.
  • Elite care: In most cases of gum disease, the true cause is neglect of one’s oral care. Millions of adults have a fear of visiting the dentist and that often leads to oral health problems down the road. To avoid this issue and to get patients in more often, we offer sedation dentistry treatment options that will ensure minimal discomfort and anxiety while the treatment is taking place.
