A Periodontist With Advanced Training, Skill and Experience
When it comes to periodontal and dental implant services, a periodontist offers your smile the highest standard of care. A periodontist receives an additional three years of specialized training and education in periodontics and implantology, beyond the standard four years of dental school. Our highly skilled periodontist, Dr. Christopher Bingham, is an expert at diagnosing and treating diseases of the gum, bone and other tissues surrounding your teeth. He also specializes in the surgical placement and maintenance of dental implants, and is the periodontist many general dentists and other specialists trust to provide comprehensive care for patients.
A Whole-Body, Minimally Invasive Approach
Research indicates a significant link between oral health and general (systemic) health. Our periodontist deeply understands this relationship, and takes whole body health into consideration for every treatment. Dr. Bingham and our team not only look at what is affecting your teeth, gums and bone, we also consider systemic issues that could be contributing to your oral conditions and how periodontal treatments may impact your general health. As your healthcare partner and periodontist, we may consult with your medical physicians to provide the most minimally invasive care for your individual needs.
Same-Day Emergency Care From Your Periodontist
