Have red, painful gums? This is sometimes an indication of gum disease. While gum disease starts in the soft tissues surrounding your teeth, it has much broader potential implications. The bone and teeth associated with unhealthy gums will become affected. As the bone is destroyed the teeth get loose and can fall out. Untreated gum disease can even exacerbate health problems. Dr. Clarke Filippi, the founder of Central Valley Periodontics & Implants, can help you overcome these issues and regain your oral health. In addition, he can correct issues that affect your oral function and esthetics. If you need periodontal surgery in Modesto, CA, you have found a proven expert.
Dr. Filippi is a board-certified periodontist who is been helping patients live happier, healthier lives since 2001. After graduating from dental school, he completed a further three years of advanced training in soft tissue treatments and dental implants. Unlike many periodontists, he did not stop there. He attained certification from the American Board of Periodontology—something only a fraction of his peers have achieved—by far exceeding the minimum educational requirements of his profession. Reach out to him if you have periodontal disease symptoms or any problems with the soft tissues of your mouth!
