Dr. Hans-Dieter John, MSD, USA
You have probably been told, or believe, that you have a periodontal or gum disorder requiring specialized periodontal treatment to preserve existing teeth, or are already missing some teeth and are interested in dental implants to restore both proper chewing and speaking capabilities and an aesthetic smile through these fixed and non-removable tooth replacements.
What is a periodontist? A periodontist is a dentist who has taken at least two years of advanced training, after dental school, to learn about health, disease, and treatment of bone and bone tissues. In general, this specialty also involves preventive dentistry, dental implants, occlusal treatment, and minor orthodontics.
We hope this web site will help you understand our treatment procedures and what you can expect from treatment.
We believe that retaining your natural teeth is very important. The preservation of you natural, healthy smile and your ability to chew comfortably and efficiently through periodontal treatment or, if need be, through the help of dental implants, are the primary goals of your treatment.
We will be happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding your dental related problems, so please ask. As you proceed through the treatment stages, we will do our best to explain each step in simple terms so you will understand your treatment situation.
Our team includes a periodontist, who has received two years of specialty training in Periodontics and Implantology in the USA. Through the latest technology (intraoral cameras, computer-aided radiographs, microbiological tests, tests for inflammation enzyme markers etc.) we are able to provide very advanced diagnosis and therapy.
To help keep your mouth all your life in optimal health, comfort, function and aesthetics through the most up-to-date periodontal treatment modalities and, if necessary, through implant dentistry. Using special dental implants we can now treat patients missing some teeth, or all teeth, to restore aesthetics, chewing and speaking abilities, and the confidence and self-esteem necessary for daily life.
Through all stages of your treatment we will try to fully explain our procedures and we invite your questions. We will tech you various ways in which you can improve your oral health at home, and we will expect you to do your best to maintain these practices.
