Dr. Roane’s practice provides a variety of surgical and restorative services within the field of his expertise as a periodontist. Magazines, marketing campaigns and the media present treatments that are used in all phases of dentistry. These are presented as the ultimate, one-size-fits-all answer to dental problems. The patient should understand that they are not. The methods often have a narrow sphere of applicability that is best interpreted by the expert, a periodontist with years of experience in both civilian practice and in the military like Dr. Roane. A dentist in general practice is not qualified to do this.
Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. At other times surgical therapy is required. Even in severe cases, non-surgical periodontal therapy often precedes surgical therapy. This is done to improve the overall tissue quality prior to surgery and also to help limit the areas requiring surgical intervention.
Preparing the proper treatment plan is a complex matter requiring a knowledgeable and experienced periodontist like Dr. Roane. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are very conservative in our treatment recommendations and limit surgical procedures to only those areas where it is absolutely necessary.
