Periodontists Paul Barabas and Daniel Barabas will make every effort to save your natural teeth. Very few teeth should be lost due to periodontal disease. Teeth are sadly often lost to trauma, caries, failed root canal therapy. They are also sadly lost to poor previous dentistry. We view it as our mission to retain the natural dentition as long as prudent.
While we are experts in single to full mouth implant therapy, this is an extremely costly way of replacing teeth, and implants are far from perfect replacements for your own, natural teeth. The bone around implants is also prone to breakdown(peri-implantitis), and this can be treated with a very minimally invasive method.
If you are unhappy with your dental implant(s), there may also be a good treatment in our office for you to reduce the inflammation and regenerate some of the bone.
If you do not have a general dentist, that is not a problem. No referral is needed to come as a new patient. However, we also do not perform restorations(fillings), root canals or crowns/bridges in our practice.
Our goal is to stabilize your mouth from an inflammatory standpoint. At this point, should the need for other dental treatment(like crowns or fillings or root canals) we have a referral network of trusted, quality general dentists, prosthodontists, and other specialists. This ensures only necessary and excellent treatment is performed on our patients.
