Save Your Teeth
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is a progressive disease that, if not treated, can result in the loss of gum and bone tissue—and even in the loss of one, several or all of a person’s teeth. As a periodontist, Dr. Blackenburg works to eliminate gum disease that could otherwise result in the loss of teeth.
Dr. Blackenburg sees many patients who come to have failing teeth replaced with dental implants. But many are surprised to find that their teeth can actually be salvaged. Through his expert knowledge of the gum and bone tissue that support the teeth, Dr. Blackenburg can determine which teeth can predictably be saved and which cannot. If you have been told that your teeth need to be extracted due to gum disease, you can call us to schedule an exam with Dr. Blackenburg and get a second opinion.
If you do need dental implants, you can rest assured that Dr. Blackenburg is a highly skilled dental implant surgeon.
