Why do I Need A Periodontist?
Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gum disease.

What is our philosophy?
Dr. Nurin and his dedicated staff are committed to providing their patients with the best dental care at the least expense and amoumt of stress possible. He achieves this high standard by incorporating the latest technologies and procedures in a communicative, comfortable and friendly environment. Your complete satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
For instance: Dr. Nurin has a 24 hour emergency service and will see emergency patients as soon as possible. He lives within twenty five minutes of his office and can respond to emergency patients almost immediately.

Also, nitrous oxide and sedatives are provided for his more apprehensive patients and arrangements can be made to have the treatment provided while his patients are asleep.

What does periodontal treatment involve?
After reviewing your medical and dental history, Dr. Nurin will examine your gums, teeth and mouth. This examination will include looking at the color and firmness of your gums, studying which teeth are loose and checking how much gum tissue has been damaged. Necessary radiographs may be taken to evaluate the bone supporting the remaining teeth.
After gathering this information, Dr. Nurin will discuss your condition with you and suggest the most helpful treatment necessary for your dental health.

What are theoffice's policies and  procedures?
To allow sufficient time for individual attention, Dr. Nurin sees patients by appointment only. Please be assured that every effort is made to honor your appointment time and he asks that you extend the same courtesy. If an unanticipated circumstance requires you to either run late or cancel, please call as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of seeing a periodontist?
Besides fresh breath, a renewed confidence in your smile, restored oral health and a new sense of health and vitality, you'll be able to chew your food more easily and enjoy foods you may have avoided because they were too difficult to eat. Years ago people accepted tooth loss as part of getting older. You don't have to. With help from your dentist and periodontist, plus your own dedication to good oral hygiene, you should keep your teeth for a lifetime.

How much will treatment cost?
The cost of the periodontal treatment will vary depending upon your needs. After Dr. Nurin has examined you and determined the appropriate treatment, he can provide you and your insurance company with an estimate of the cost. As you consider this health investment, keep in mind that treating gum disease is less costly - and better for your health - than replacing teeth lost to untreated gum disease.

What is the relationship between your dentist and Dr. Nurin?
Your dentist and Dr. Nurin work together as a team to provide you with the best possible care. They will combine their experience to formulate the best treatment plan for you while keeping each other informed about your progress.
After active periodontal treatment is completed, Dr. Nurin will refer you back to your dentist but may also see you periodically to follow up on your care and periodontal treatment.
