Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases, which affect the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. A periodontist is a dental specialist who has received additional education and training.
We are proud to have Dr. Sergio Guzman on our team as our periodontist. Dr. Guzman has a wealth of experience and expertise in his field and is known for his exceptional skills in placing dental implants.
So, what does a periodontist do? Let’s take a closer look.
One of the primary roles of a periodontist is to help prevent gum diseases from occurring in the first place. This includes educating patients on good oral hygiene habits, as well as identifying risk factors that could lead to gum disease.
Dr. Guzman is particularly skilled in this area, and he takes the time to educate his patients on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene habits. He also conducts thorough examinations to identify any potential risk factors, such as smoking, poor nutrition, or genetics and provides personalized recommendations for preventing periodontal disease.
Diagnosis and treatment:
If gum disease does occur, Dr. Guzman is trained to diagnose and treat the condition. This may involve scaling and root planing (deep cleaning of the teeth and gums), medication, or surgery in more severe cases.
Dr. Guzman is highly skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases, and he uses the latest techniques and technologies to ensure the best possible outcomes for his patients. He takes a personalized approach to treatment, working closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their unique needs.
Placement of dental implants:
Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing teeth. However, placing dental implants requires a high level of skill and expertise, as it involves surgically inserting a titanium post into the jawbone.
Dr. Guzman is recognized as one of the best dental implant periodontists in Boston. He has extensive experience in this area, and he uses the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that his patients receive the best possible care.
