Preserving the foundation of your smile

Your jawbone is the foundation of your teeth and gums. In cases of advanced periodontitis, parts of the jawbone can actually dissolve, leading to pain and tooth loss.

Surgical skill you can trust

As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. T. Merrell Williams is an expert in all types of surgical procedures for gum disease. If your treatment plan includes bone or gum grafting, Dr. Williams will begin by treating the gum disease, then using local anesthesia (or IV sedation if you prefer), he will surgically repair the damage to your jaw using bone grafting materials.

Personalized care at every visit

Dr. Williams believes the only way to deliver the best possible dental care is by really getting to know his patients. This board-certified periodontist always takes the time to discuss gum disease treatment options and answer all of your questions.
