At Rocky Mountain Periodontal Specialists in Colorado Springs, we provide complete, compassionate care for patients seeking to restore their oral health. Periodontal problems often impact more than just your gums—infections may damage your teeth, too. Plaque-causing bacteria can enter your blood stream and affect your heart, brain, joints, and lungs. In fact, continuing scientific research shows disturbing links between poor oral health and systemic illnesses such as coronary artery disease, strokes, and diabetes.
Dr. Geoff B. Haradon and Dr. Karl P. Lackler are some of the most experienced periodontists in the Colorado Springs area. They are proud to have achieved the Top Dentists annual list, and they have more than 36 years of education, service, and experience between them. Like all of our staff, our periodontists strive to provide excellence in oral health and patient care.
Treating gum disease is not just about saving your smile; it’s about protecting the entire body. Naturally, that means we’ve always focused on the health and safety of our patients during appointments. That focus has only become more important as the world changes around us. No matter what concerns you have regarding your own health, you can continue to visit our periodontal office with the peace of mind that our new strict safety protocols allow for.
At our periodontal office, we offer a number of amenities to help patients soothe their nerves before their periodontal treatments. While waiting, you’ll have a wonderful view of Pike’s Peak, and you’ll be able to sit back in our comfortable waiting room until we call you back for your treatment. You’ll also find that we’ve implemented the latest technologies in our routine treatments, allowing us to complete your visits in less time with the best results possible.
Dental implants completely transform what it means to get teeth replaced. Your new smile will be as strong as the old one, and issues such as bone loss will no longer be a problem. Such a life-changing procedure should only be left to a compassionate, experienced periodontist that truly knows what they’re doing. Our periodontists all have extensive experience in placing implants, and they are used to working on a wide variety of complex cases.
Maybe you simply need a non-surgical solution for gum disease, like scaling and root planing. Or maybe you’ll need to undergo multiple treatments, like bone grafting and implant placement. Every situation is unique, but our standards for high quality care will always stay the same. We want you to be able to smile at the results of your treatment for years to come, and we’ll do everything we can to steer you in the right direction so that you know what treatments are truly necessary for healthy gums and a fully intact grin.
