We Provide Gum Disease Screenings!
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is no laughing matter. Although much of it is undetectable, it’s still dangerous. Gum disease has been linked to countless health problems, including:
At Brook Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we work very hard to provide you, our valued patient, with the best care and treatment available. With extensive training and decades of experience, Dr. Brook can ensure you are being cared for with your best interests in mind.
How is a Periodontist different than a regular dentist?
Periodontists like Dr. Brook are extensively trained to treat diseases of the gums and the bone tissue structures surrounding teeth. After graduating from dental school, a dentist must complete an additional three years in a residency-training program to become a certified periodontist.
In addition to preventing, diagnosing and treating gum disease, Dr. Brook also addresses problems with your jaw and the loss of bone in your mouth area. For severe cases where teeth are already missing, Dr. Brook specializes in restorative dental implants, which can bring your mouth’s function back to its original ability.
What Is Periodontal Disease?
Common Signs of Periodontal Disease:
Also called gum disease, periodontal disease is a health condition that starts with the inflammation of the gums, or gingivitis. The plaque that develops on your teeth engenders bacteria, which infects the tissues that surround your teeth. Your gums become painful, red and swollen, and they begin to bleed.
Healthy Gums Lead to Fresh Breath & a Healthy Body!
Although it can go unnoticed for a time, this ailment is a serious one. Studies have suggested its link to strokes, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy. Periodontal disease is the number-one cause of adult tooth loss in the developed world. About four out of five people have periodontal disease and don’t even know it.
Brook Periodontics & Implant Dentistry recommends non-surgical procedures to correct these problems whenever possible. With a wide array of antibiotic technology available, we can recommend the most appropriate solution for your situation. From Atridox™ and PerioChip™ to Actisite™ we have more gum disease fighting options than ever before.

Did you know bridges could damage your teeth?
Often used by dentists to replace a missing tooth, bridges come at a cost to your neighboring teeth. An increase is usually seen in cavities as well as root canal problems, and atrophy. This is why Dr. Brook recommends Dental Implants, which are much less invasive to surrounding teeth.
