Periodontist in Tampa, Lutz, Land O’Lakes, Wesley Chapel & Zephyrhills

periodontistUntreated gingivitis (gum disease) might lead to the development of a more severe condition known as periodontitis, which may involve the spread of infection to the bone and ligaments that support the mouth. This, in turn, might require the attention of a specific type of dental practitioner known as a periodontist, whose training and experience includes dealing with dental conditions that affect more than just the teeth and gums.

At Serenity Dental, brothers Nilash and Nitash Patel possess a vast amount of experience handling cases of advanced gingivitis and periodontitis, including performing implant-related restorations, complex cosmetic makeovers and every other aspect of dentistry practiced by a periodontist. In addition to gum diseasetreatment, they focus heavily on educating their patients about early detection and prevention of gingivitis, thereby forestalling the development of dental conditions even more serious than gum disease.

Symptoms that may require the attention of a periodontist include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Gums that appear red or purplish-red
  • Gum tenderness
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Gums that are swollen
  • Gums that appear shiny
