About Four Rivers Periodontics and Implant Specialists
Top-Quality Periodontic Care in Washington
Four Rivers Periodontics and Implant Specialists is a practice limited to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, oral medicine, and dental implants. For gum disease, we focus on conservative treatment with regenerative procedures to help regrow lost bone and gum tissue when possible.
In addition to gum disease, our Washington periodontics specialists perform cosmetic procedures such as gum grafting and esthetic crown lengthening. Gum grafting can help cover the root surface that has been exposed by receding gums. These receded areas may be causing sensitivity. Esthetic crown lengthening can help elongate the appearance of teeth for a more esthetic smile.
Dental implants are another way Four Rivers Periodontics and Implant Specialists can help restore the function and esthetics of your smile. We will work closely with your general dentist, using each of our unique skills to achieve the desired outcome.
Overall, we focus on creating individualized treatment plans that center around the patient's concerns, the causes of any problems, and solutions that fit the patient's unique situation. We strive to maintain the highest ethical standards and to treat patients as we would our family. Thank you for trusting us with your care.
