Dental Associates of New England is proud to have a full-time periodontist at our practice, who evaluates and improves our patients' gum health. Periodontal care is the foundation upon which all other aspects of oral health are dependent. If you are experiencing gum problems or disease, our specialized team can renew your mouth's foundation for a healthier, more beautiful mouth.
We have a wonderful periodontist in the practice which performs all types
of periodontal services from implants, to gum surgery, or osteosurgery, to
tissue grafts for recession. Then a thing that we do with a lot of our

common name is a gummy smile, where there's too much gum in the patients
smile. He'll level off and scallop the gums up so they'll be nice and even

In some places where one tooth is high with the gum and one tooth is low
with the gum, he'll balance it out, and it just makes a world of difference

will come in, I will prep the case, put the provisional temporary on which
will look wonderful, and then he will do the surgery and align the gums to
create just a beautiful smile. That's something cosmetically we do very
