What is periodontics? Periodontics is a specialized type of dentistry that focuses solely on periodontal diseases. These diseases can cause serious damage to your gums and teeth. In the past, if you were diagnosed with gum disease, you had to find a specialist who wasn’t familiar with your dental history or individual circumstances. But at Nobel Dental Care, we can take care of all your dental needs. Dr. Pooja Mehrotra offers periodontic care for patients in Lancaster, Rock Hill, Indian Land, Heath Springs, Kershaw, and surrounding areas of South Carolina.
Our periodontist can treat even the most difficult cases, such as gingivitis. We provide our patients with a wide variety of treatments designed to return your teeth and gums to optimal health. We can also use surgical procedures as needed, including the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
At Nobel Dental Care, we examine our patients’ gums at every visit to see if there’s any evidence of gum line recession. We’ll evaluate your bite, as well as check for loose teeth. We use the most modern instruments and techniques to determine the depth of spaces between the teeth and gums — known as periodontal pockets — to assess the overall health of a patient’s gums. We also use X-rays to observe the health of the bone below the gum line.
If you’re looking for a dentist in Lancaster, SC who also specializes in periodontics, come to Nobel Dental Care. Dr. Mehrotra is currently accepting new patients. We’ll give you a complete dental exam and find out if there’s any evidence of gum disease. We’ll then come up with a treatment plan that’s designed to meet our ultimate goal — healthy teeth that will last a lifetime. Don’t put off taking care of one of your most valuable assets.
