Dedicated Dental Care Focused on Your Overall Health

Ashland, MA Periodontics

Call (508) 244-4167 for Experienced & Skilled Dental Services in Middlesex County & the Greater MetroWest Area

Periodontics is a highly specialized area of dentistry which treats the area “around” a tooth, such as gums, bone, and supporting ligaments. These tissues support the teeth, keep them in place, and supply the teeth with nutrients. The health of these tissues is essential to overall oral health. Some of the most common periodontal diseases include gingivitis and periodontitis.

Common symptoms of periodontal diseases include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Red, inflamed, or sensitive gums
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Loose or separating teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Mouth sores

At Zarrella Dentistry, our dentists and periodontists in Ashland and the Greater MetroWest Area take a comprehensive approach to ensure that your mouth is healthy. We will help prevent and detect gum disease with regular dental cleanings to remove plaque or tartar that are difficult to reach and remove during regular brushing and flossing. Additionally, we can perform more extensive work if you have been diagnosed with gum disease.

Periodontal Services We Offer

There is a wide range of options to help restore the health of your gums and help you love your smile once again. For over 30 years, our dentists have been providing top-quality and personalized dental services that are focused on helping our patients obtain optimal oral hygiene and overall health.

Types of periodontal services we offer include:

  • Gum disease treatment – Also known as periodontal disease, it is the second most destructive dental disorder that can lead to  tooth loss in adults over 35 years of age. We have a periodontal specialist who can diagnose and treat periodontal disease and other conditions, helping you save your teeth.
  • Dental implant placement – If you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, you may need to obtain dental implants. The titanium post mimics the roots of a natural tooth to preserve the jaw bone and the custom-made crown provides a natural appearance and function for chewing
  • Extractions – When the decay, damage, or infection is so severe, it is required to remove the tooth since it could no longer be saved. Our in-house periodontist can help you choose a solution when one or more teeth are missing.
  • Crown lengthening – This surgical procedure re-contours the gum tissue and/or bone to allow a tooth to be restored. If you have a fractured tooth, deep filing under gum tissue, developed cavities under the gum line, or have teeth that are worn down, you may need crown lengthening.
  • Periodontal therapy – This helps return your gums and jawbone back to their normal health.
