At Mahoning Valley Periodontics and Dental Implants, our experienced dental team combines advanced technology and innovative techniques to deliver healthy, long-lasting results. We are committed to providing conservative and effective periodontal, cosmetic and dental implant care to our patients with a focus on compassionate and individualized treatment. The dental procedures performed in our office save natural teeth by eliminating periodontal disease and replacing hopeless or missing natural teeth by placing dental implants. All dental work performed in our office is done in conjunction with your family dentist. Our goal is to provide care that restores the mouth to the best esthetics, function and longevity possible, by taking into consideration each patient's individual needs. Through this comprehensive process, patients can be confident they are making a meaningful investment in their dental health that can provide lasting value for years to come.
Periodontal disease affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It starts when plaque and tartar are allowed to accumulate at the base of your teeth. The bacteria in the plaque leads to an infection in the gums called Gingivitis, which can lead to tissue and bone.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw to replace one, or multiple missing teeth. Implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth lost from tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease or trauma.
