What Does a Periodontist Do?
Periodontology is a specialty area of dentistry that deals with structures that support your teeth and the diseases that affect them. As a periodontal specialist, Dr. Hsu trained in the field for an additional three years beyond dental school. This advanced skill and training enable him to provide specialized periodontal care and advanced dental implant placement.
At our dental office in Temple City, you’ll find advanced gum disease services, including periodontal disease treatment, pocket reduction surgery, gum grafting, and bone grafting.
The Importance of Treating Gum Disease
Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums that, left untreated, gradually destroys the structures that support your natural teeth. As gum disease progresses, the gum tissue and bone that hold your teeth in place begin to deteriorate and eventually lead to tooth loss.
Unfortunately, it is highly prevalent in the US, and nearly half of all adults over 30 have some level of gum disease. However, with effective gum disease treatment, Dr. Hsu can eliminate gingivitis and control periodontitis to help you avoid tooth loss.
Leading-Edge Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants
Dental implants are changing the way people live every day. Tooth loss has a tremendous impact on your self-confidence and can make it difficult to chew comfortably and speak clearly.
Millions of people today are enjoying the benefits of tooth replacement with dental implants. Dental implants are unique because they provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, function, and feel just like natural teeth.
Because tooth implants prevent jawbone deterioration, they also help preserve facial structure to help retain a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Hsu uses dental implants to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth with implant-retained dentures.
High Standards, Exceptional Results
We strive to maintain the highest clinical and ethical standards and stay on the leading edge of periodontal treatments. Dr. Hsu and his professional team are committed to continuously expanding their knowledge through continuing education and advanced training to ensure that you have access to the best and most modern treatment.
Dr. Hsu has also invested in state-of-the-art technology like 3-D cone beam imaging to evaluate your jawbone health and plan the precise placement of dental implants for the best possible long-term outcomes.
