We’re Here to Help You With Your Oral Health

We provide personalized care

When to see a Periodontist?

Periodontal treatment may be sought in several ways. Your general dentist or a hygienist may recommend a consultation with a periodontist if they find signs of periodontal disease through the course of a checkup or other dental care appointment. You may also decide to see a periodontist on your own, as a referral is not necessary to be seen at our office. In fact, if you experience any of these symptoms, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our office without delay.

Dementia and the Health of Your Gums

Did you know that the state of your brain could be affected by the state of your oral health? New studies have shown that there can be correlation between unhealthy gums, jaw bone, and inflammation. This can be treated in our office with the newest laser technology. No matter what your age is, it’s important to treat your gum health seriously now to help prevent cognitive decline as you get older.


We are a Delta Dental Preferred Provider

Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical plans. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. As a courtesy to our patients with medical and/or dental benefit plans, we will submit necessary claim forms, receipts, and other information to your insurance company.

Gum Health Affects Your Whole Body

Because gum health is linked to many larger health issues, our periodontal treatment is about more than just your gums. Much like the way soil quality can affect the health of a tree, your gums can deeply affect the overall health of your mouth – and even lead to other, more serious health conditions throughout the rest of your body. Our periodontal team can give you a healthy foundation to keep your mouth free of disease, which can help you preserve your smile and avoid bigger health problems.

Dental ImplanT repair

If you have a dental implant – or several – you know what an amazing, natural-looking option they can be to replace missing teeth. While they’re made to be strong and long-lasting, over time dental implants may require repair or maintenance.  If you have an issue with your dental implant due to loosening, gum disease, or just simple wear and tear, don’t worry – we can help!

Here at Salem Periodontal Specialists, PC, we specialize in dental implant repair, and when you come in for your consultation we’ll find the best solution to fix your smile. Our caring, expert team knows how important your quality of life is, so we want to ensure your dental implants remain as comfortable and functional as possible. Call us today and get back to eating, speaking and smiling again with confidence!
