When to see a periodontist
Call Dr. DeAndrade & Dr. Allen now!

Many of our patients are referred to us by their regular dentist after being diagnosed with a condition best served by a board-certified periodontist, but did you know that you could get in touch with us directly? Some symptoms are unique to periodontic issues, and your best bet is to have them treated by a specialist.

A periodontist starts with the same dental degree that your general dentist does, but then we undergo an additional 3 years of training in disorders related specifically to the soft tissue and bone found in your mouth. This additional education makes us the best choice for the treatment of gum disease, dental implants, gum restoration and dentures. It’s the only area we focus on so we are able to keep up to date and trained in the latest procedures and technologies available in this field.

If you notice the following, feel free to call us directly:

  • Bleeding Gums
  • Visible Pus In The Gum Area
  • Mouth Sores That Don’t Heal
  • Persistent Bad Breath
  • Loose Or Missing Teeth
  • Change In The Way Your Bite Feels
  • Improperly Fitted Dentures
  • Recessed Gums
  • Gummy Smile

Whether you have come to us through your dentist or on your own, we are happy to work with them to achieve your best smile possible. Periodontal issues should not be taken lightly and are best handled by a specialist. At Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants, we want to be your first choice when these problems arise. We even offer several financing options to cover what your insurance doesn’t. Call our friendly staff to schedule your appointment today.
