Periodontics
Fort Lauderdale, FL


Woman smiling in a dental chair at Florida Smiles Dental in Fort Lauderdale, FLAt Florida Smiles Dental we specialize in a wide variety of procedures designed to maintain or improve your periodontal tissues. The periodontal (gum) tissues are an important part of your oral health. Our experience and expertise in periodontics allows us to provide high-quality treatments you cannot find anywhere else!

Periodontal Disease


Periodontal disease is the result of an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque and tartar (calcified plaque). In response to the bacteria, our immune system produces toxins that unfortunately target healthy tissue as well. Eventually, these toxins produce the infection we call periodontal disease.

Mouth-Body Connection


Several studies over the years have shown a strong connection between our oral and overall well-being. Certain illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other systemic problems have been linked to the presence of periodontal disease. In some instances, this illness can weaken your immune system, putting you at greater risk for periodontal infection. In other cases, the infection stemming from periodontal disease can increase your risk for systemic illnesses.

LANAP® Procedure


Traditional gum disease treatment methods involve cutting or amputation of the gums. While these methods are generally effective, they are extremely invasive and often require a long recovery time. LANAP® uses a laser light in the deep pockets between the gum and tooth to remove and prevent the bacteria that causes periodontitis. The gums are left completely intact and are compressed against the tooth.

Laser Dentistry


Not only does Laser Dentistry allow for a comfortable, speedy recovery for dental procedures, it causes less bleeding, soreness, or even swelling. It also poses as a safer, alternative form of treatment than other riskier options like electrosurgical techniques, with less electrical interference.


Gingival Contouring


Some people are born with uneven gums or an excessive amount of gum tissue. This can create aesthetic issues with your smile. We may recommend gingival contouring to improve the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you a more beautiful smile!

Gum Grafting


Gum grafting] may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.

Bone Regeneration


Regeneration can benefit any patient that has lost bone in their face, even if you have never had gum disease. Bone will often diminish as a part of age or as the result of teeth that have been lost and not replaced, so regeneration is not limited to patients with gum disease.

Chao Pinhole Gum Surgery


At Florida Smiles Dental, we specialize in a revolutionary new procedure known as Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST). Invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, this cutting-edge technique has forever changed the way we correct gum recession. If you need restorative periodontal treatment, Chao pinhole gum surgery may be the ideal solution!

Surgical Treatment


More Americans lose adult teeth to gum disease than any other cause. Fortunately, there are more options than ever for treating stubborn gum disease. Florida Smiles Dental knows that the prospect of surgery can be concerning to many patients, so here are the safe and effective techniques that we have used with great success.

Non-Surgical Treatment


Gum disease can be a complex and multi-faceted condition that affects not just the gums, but your teeth, jawbone, and the rest of your mouth. To treat it, Florida Smiles Dental uses a combination approach. Whenever possible, though, our first approach is always non-invasive, non-surgical treatments.

Why Choose a Periodontist?


It can seem unnecessary to consult a periodontist if you already have a dentist that you know and trust. After all, dentists are trained to fix your gums too, right? While it is true that your dentist knows a lot about gums, the periodontists here at Florida Smiles Dental have made gums their lives’ work. With multiple specialists under one roof, we make it easy to have the right specialist help you with your care.
