Periodontics/Gum Surgery

Periodontology or Periodontics (from Greek peri "around"; and odous "tooth", genitive odontos) is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, diseases, and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament.

Dr. Doctor has completed specific courses with the likes of Dr. James Kohner on Periodontal Plastic Surgery, and Periodontal Surgical Skills with Dr. Steve Cooper, both at the Perio Institute in Snoqualmie, Washington.

These are some of the periodontal and gum surgeries we offer here at our Southlake and Arlington dental offices.
