Our Doctors believes that your right to choose a dentist is an important freedom. We work closely with your dentist, but a referral by a dentist is not required to visit our office. We also welcome referrals from patients and friends of the practice.

What is a Periodontist ?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession. The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school. By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Lee and Dr. Estemalik can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.

What is a Endodontist?

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the study and treatment of the dental pulp, which is the inner soft tissue of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels. Endodontists are specialists who have undergone additional training beyond dental school, typically 2-3 years of advanced education, to focus specifically on diagnosing and treating conditions related to the dental pulp and the tissues surrounding the roots of the teeth.

Common procedures performed by endodontists include root canal therapy, which involves removing the infected or damaged pulp and sealing the root canal system to prevent reinfection. Endodontists also perform procedures to treat cracked teeth, traumatized teeth, and address complications from previous endodontic treatments.
