Periodontics and Dental Implants
Welcome to our practice.
Dr. Knox specializes in the conservative surgical and non-surgical treatment of gum disease, cosmetic procedures to enhance your smile, and dental implants to replace missing teeth. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States ( www.FDA.gov ), and more than 75 percent of Americans over age 35 have some form of gum disease. If you have been referred to Dr. Knox, your periodontal disease may have progressed beyond the beginning stages. Our goal is to work closely with your general dentist to provide the best possible care to help you maintain your dental health and keep your teeth for a lifetime. If you have any questions, please e-mail us or call us. Delaying treatment can have serious consequences.
