Periodontology is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gums, alveolar bone, and the periodontal ligament.
Our Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Talia Shainhouse, provides excellent and gentle care. She is highly trained in the fields of implant dentistry, cosmetic periodontal treatment and periodontal disease and its treatment. Periodontal disease is a silent, persistent bacterial infection that causes bad breath, pain and is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to heart disease.
Dr. Shainhouse works closely with Dr. Ben-Roohi to provide the best possible treatment solutions and outcomes.
