Find a PERFECT TEETH™ Periodontist Near You

The PERFECT TEETH™ network of dentists includes periodontists in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease and the placement of dental implants.  As an integral part of your dental care at PERFECT TEETH™, our team will help educate you on the best ways to prevent periodontal (gum) disease, and how to manage your oral health.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 50% of American adults are affected by some form of periodontal disease.   In most cases, people are unaware that they have this serious infection as the signs and symptoms of this disease are often silent.  When periodontal disease is left untreated it is the number one reason for adults to lose their teeth.  

To determine if periodontal disease is present, it is important for our team to review your health and medical history, as it may have an impact on the health of your teeth and gums.  During your appointment, our PERFECT TEETH™ dental professionals will examine your entire mouth to assess the health of your gums and surrounding structures.    

If periodontal disease is found, your hygienist or dentist will try to treat the infection non-surgically; this is the least invasive and most cost-effective approach in managing the disease. However, there may be circumstances in which non-surgical treatment is not an option.  If bone and/or tissue loss is significant, you may be referred to one of our periodontists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease, and are trained in the placement of dental implants.  Our periodontists will take immediate action with these specific cases to establish appropriate treatment to ensure your disease and overall oral health are effectively controlled.   Be sure to give one of our offices a call today to find out how we can help you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile that will last a lifetime!
