Periodontal Disease

A recent study has found that periodontal disease has been linked to some cancers. Dr. Malek recommends that periodontal disease can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene and regular visits with your dentist and periodontist.


Dental Implants

A dental implant (artificial tooth root) is a custom-made piece of bio-compatible metal (so your body does not reject this material) serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth.
