Dr. Luis Gomez, DMD

Periodontist, Dentist

Professional statement

Dr Gomez, a periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease involving the structures that surround and support your teeth, like your gums, alveolar bone, cementum and the root ligament, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation. Flap surgery/pocket reduction surgery: your gums are lifted back to remove tartar, and irregular surfaces are smoothed to deter bacteria build-up. Your gums are then replaced snugly around your teeth to help eliminate areas where bacteria can hide out. Soft tissue grafts: grafted tissue, typically taken from the roof of your mouth, is stitched into thin or receding gum areas to reinforce them. Guided tissue regeneration: when the bone supporting your teeth (alveolar) has been destroyed, a small piece of mesh-like fabric gets placed between it and your gum tissue, to keep your gum tissue from growing into the area where bone should be. Done in conjunction with flap surgery, this allows the bone and connective tissue to grow so that they better support your teeth. Bone grafts: fragments of your own bone, synthetic bone or donated bone are installed to replace bone that has been destroyed by gum disease. These grafts serve as a foundation supporting the regrowth of your own bone, which will restore the stability of your teeth. Bone surgery: shallow craters in the bone due to bone loss are smoothed out after flap surgery to eliminate areas where bacteria can continue to collect. Admittedly, treatment of periodontics may sound intimidating. But you can count on Dr Gomez. Your best periodontal ‘treatment’ is prevention. Brush, floss and get your teeth cleaned by our hygienist regularly to prevent periodontal disease.
