Periodontist at Scripps West Dental Offers Wide Range of Services.

Written by Scripps West Dental


A healthy smile can last a lifetime when patients take a proactive approach to caring for their teeth and gums. This means visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and evaluations. However, if issues arise and are diagnosed by a dental professional, it is wise to seek treatment sooner rather than later. Many conditions can develop within the smile and significantly reduce a patient’s risk of maintaining their oral health, so working with a dental team with your best interests in mind is critical! At Scripps West Dental in San Diego, CA, patients can enjoy treatments and services with a periodontist on staff.

The importance of healthy gums

The gums are the soft tissues in the mouth that protect the roots of the teeth, though if neglected, problems can develop. This includes periodontal disease, or “gum disease.” Periodontal disease is one of many conditions that can be diagnosed and treated with a periodontist. Our team at Scripps West Dental is also excited to help patients who are not only looking for a periodontist in the Mira Mesa area but those looking to have periodontal work performed at the dental office with the team they already know and trust.
