Our office is dedicated to providing exceptional periodontal and dental implant services to our community as well as surrounding areas.
At our office, we believe that educating our patients helps create the foundation for successful treatment. We want our patients to be aware that good oral hygiene is important in achieving a healthier lifestyle. To better assist patients in their oral hygiene care, we recommend monitoring of their oral condition. Some indications that you may need to alert your dentist could include; persistent swollen, red, or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity, and bad breath. These symptoms could be signs of Periodontal Disease-a serious infection that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss or other more serious infections. Don't let periodontal disease take away your smile. If you have one or more of these symptoms, don't put off treatments.
Dr. Forbes is also a lead provider in implantology, or otherwise known as the placement of dental implants. He prides himself in his honest approach to dentistry as well as his conservative yet effective treatment planning. We understand that individuals are provided with many treatment options and we want to make sure we, as service providers, give you all that is needed when making the right choice in your long term oral health. Dental implants have many beneficial aspects, some key advantages include: convenience, durability, improved oral health, improved appearance, improved speech and comfort, as opposed to some other more traditional treatment options.
We utilize our proven treatment methods to address all phases of periodontal disease and perform surgical procedures such as bone grafting, crown lengthening and dental implants. We also specialize in performing non-surgical procedures which include scaling and root planing. You can check out our services more in detail in the above tab entitled 'Treatment'.
