Periodontist in Damascus, MD
Consult with a Certified Periodontist
When it comes to preventing and treating periodontal or gum disease, a general dentist does not always suffice. Periodontists are gum specialists and are dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease. Additionally, periodontists are experts on dental implants and oral inflammation. In order to become specialists in their field, periodontists are required to complete an additional three years of schooling after dental school. At Damascus Dental Group, our staff includes a periodontist/prosthodontist— Dr. Kyong Choe, D.D.S., M.S.—who can provide the specialized treatment you need. We also have a team of dental hygienists who work in conjunction with Dr. Choe to help our patients achieve optimal periodontal health.
The following represent some of the services our periodontist performs:
- Examines gums for gum line recession
- Cleans the infected surface of the root
- Removes damaged tissues
- Repairs dental implants
- Treats periodontal disease
Do you need full prosthetic reconstruction?
Some patients who are dealing with periodontal disease may require full prosthetic reconstruction. This extensive dental work often includes dental procedures such as dental implants, gum treatment, repair of bridges and crowns, bone grafting, and cosmetic dental procedures. We are proud to have Dr. Choe on our team to skillfully perform implants and full prosthetic reconstruction for our patients. Dr. Choe is a board-certified periodontist and a member of the faculty at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Dentistry.
