What Is Periodontics?
Periodontics is the field of dentistry that is dedicated to maintaining the health of your gums and jawbone. In order to become periodontists, dentists must undergo additional periodontal training through a recognized program, making them more specialized than the standard dental professional.
Periodontal Disease Affects Close to Half the Adults in the Country
Periodontal disease is more common than you may think, affecting about 46% of American adults 30 years of age and older. Of that group, 9% live with severe periodontal disease.
Thankfully, this condition is treatable — and you've found two board-certified periodontists that can help: Dr. Khaimov and Dr. Swerdlof.
Common Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Choose Our Board-Certified Periodontists for Comprehensive Gum and Dental Care
Periodontics and implant placement often go hand-in-hand. If you're missing a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, our periodontists can help.
They usually start by improving your gum health with periodontal treatment, like gum graft surgery or laser therapy. Then, when your gums have healed, they can keep you calm with sedation and place any necessary implants.
Finally, if you need any finishing touches after your restoration has been placed, our dentists can create a more natural-looking smile using laser gum contouring.
