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:
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Stroke
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Preterm & Low Birth Weight Babies
  • Diabetes Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Hardening of the Arteries
  • Respiratory Disease
Dr. Brook is an expert who provides his patients with a periodontal pocketing exam and information on prevention and treatment. Call us today to schedule your complimentary screening

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:
  • Bleeding gums while brushing teeth
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Loose teeth or receding gums

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.

Dental Implants – The Most Natural Way to Replace Missing Teeth!

At Brook Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we offer more restorative options than ever before. We specialize in helping patients with difficult cases that other practices could not remedy. With far more surgical techniques and services available than a typical dental office, we are able to help patients regain confidence in their smile and their bite. We encourage you to contact Dr. Brook for a consultation on Dental Implants and regaining a healthy smile.

Unique Implant Services Include:

  • Bone & Jaw Augmentation:
    We can treat patients with a wide array of dental problems. Even patients who have suffered extensive bone loss due to gum disease can still experience the freedoms of Dental Implants. While Dental Implants are a great step forward for many patients, their use has been limited for patients with bone loss. Dr. Brook now has the technology to help these underserved individuals. With Bone & Jaw Augmentation, he can graft bone tissue to bring enough strength to support Dental Implants. If you have been told Dental Implants are not a viable option for you by other practices, call today for a consultation with Dr. Brook.
  • 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.
  • Sinus Grafting:
    Yet another unique service at Brook Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, Sinus Grafting allows us to help a more diverse group of patients than regular dentists typically can. It’s useful for patients who’ve suffered from extensive gum disease or bone loss. This procedure enables us to successfully place artificial roots and provide a foundation on which new implants can be placed. You won’t find the service in many general or cosmetic dental offices. Please contact Dr. Brook for more information and your appointment.
  • Socket Preservation:
    If you are ever faced with having a tooth extracted, you should consider your long-term recovery plans. It is important to preserve your tooth’s socket after one has been extracted. The moment a tooth is extracted, bone resorption begins, reducing the amount of bone you have in your jaw. Given enough time and bone loss, this can increase the costs of a dental implant, as additional procedures will be required. To avoid higher long-term costs and more office visits, you should ask about socket preservation procedures when having a tooth extracted.
