Periodontics is a field of dentistry that involves the treatment and study of the supporting structures of the teeth, including the roots and the gums. A range of treatments falls under the umbrella of periodontology, including dental implants. Because of the complexity of placing dental implants, most dentists refer their patients out when they require periodontal treatment. At our periodontal dental practice in Syracuse, we have extensive experience with dental implants, and handle every stage of the process, including dental implant surgery. If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth or have teeth that are damaged enough to require extraction, you may benefit from dental implants; durable, long-lasting, and natural looking, dental implants are functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a condition which affects the gum tissue surrounding the teeth. Symptoms of gum disease include lesions on the gum surface and excessive bleeding of the gums. Usually brought on as a result of bacteria and plaque buildup, gum disease can cause significant damage to the mouth and teeth if left untreated. In extreme cases, gum disease can even cause tooth loss. If you believe that you have gum disease, we can help. At our dental practice, we offer gum disease treatment such as scaling and root planing, and will work with you to improve your oral health.
We understand that periodontal treatment can cause discomfort. For this reason, we utilize sedation dentistry whenever necessary to ensure the comfort of our patients. Safe and effective, dental sedation can minimize or eliminate discomfort during dental implant surgery or gum disease treatment. If you are undergoing periodontal treatment at our Syracuse dental practice, we can determine whether you would be a good candidate for sedation.

"When it comes to implants, Dr Vlassis is the best. He is very comfortable to be around. He explains procedures as he is doing them, and doesn't waste anytime. I have had a number of implants done by the good doctor and would not think of going anywhere else. I have known Dr. Vlassis 15 years, and recommend him highly."Richard T.
