Dr. Sheikh is pleased to have a periodontist as part of our team at Kennebunk Center for Dentistry. Periodontists study and treat the soft tissue inside the mouth, particularly the gums. For patients who suffer from gingivitis or periodontal disease, a periodontist can remove bacteria and plaque from your gums, and help keep your gum disease from getting worse. In most cases, patients with gum disease will require cleanings about every 3 to 4 months. For more information about how you can receive treatment for gum disease in Kennebunk, Maine, please call us today at 207-985-7944 and schedule your appointment with our dentist and periodontist.
