Hi everyone, I’m Doctor Sandra and I’m a periodontist. Some of you may be wondering what in the world is a periodontist well Perry in Latin means around and dontis means the tooth. So, everything that has to do with the structure surrounding the tooth, that’s really what a periodontist does. So, I take care of things such as gum disease which 70% of people today have some form of gum disease? Gum recession for example, A tooth that needs to be taken out or in place with an implant biopsy and making sure that the oral environment is healthy. So, I wanted to show you what really happens during gum disease. A periodontist uses something called a periodontal probe which actually has 369 millimeter and 12-millimeter measurements, to go around the tooth and measure if you have gum disease. What you see here is actually bacteria stuck on the tooth which causes, which causes bone loss right around there. Another thing that I do in my practice is dental implants and usually this is about 60 to 70% of my patients. You can lose a tooth due to fracture or cavities and then the best way to replace is our dental implant. So, do you have any questions for the periodontist?
