Gum disease or periodontal disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. A dentist who specializes in the treatment of gum diseases is called a periodontist. This gum disease dental specialist should also be consulted if you are missing one or more teeth and are considering getting dental implants.
At Navid Family Dental Associates at the Northshore Mall in Peabody, we have a highly trained periodontist, Dr. Cifuni, right on staff so you never have to go to a different dental office for periodontal surgery or treatment. Our office location is convenient to Danvers, Beverly, Salem, Lynnfield and surrounding Northshore towns.
