Performing Dental Surgery with Care since 2008

It’s common knowledge that routine dental cleanings, and daily brushing and flossing are vital to maintaining optimal oral health. But sometimes these efforts aren’t enough to prevent gum disease infection, which requires treatment from a periodontist to restore proper gum health. To help prevent tooth loss and repair damaged soft tissue, Dr. Giorgio Petricca and the team at Periodontal & Implant Clinic are committed to providing state-of-the-art treatment and dental surgery for patients in Nanaimo and surrounding areas. Specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and oral inflammation, Dr. Petricca uses fact-based evidence and logic to provide reliable care for:

And with your health and happiness in mind, Dr. Petricca understands the importance of attentively listening to your needs and concerns while providing honest advice in a friendly, compassionate, and approachable manner.

Signs You Should See a Periodontist

With gum disease being generally asymptomatic, it’s no surprise that it’s also the #1 cause of tooth loss! And while dentists have the skills to assist you in your general oral health issues, periodontists have received extended post-graduate education with focus on the treatment of problematic issues pertaining to oral soft tissue and bone. Although a lot of patients come to Dr. Petricca through dentist referrals, referrals aren’t necessary for a consultation. Some signs and symptoms that you need to see Dr. Petricca includes, but are not limited to:

  • Unexplained bleeding while eating or brushing
  • Persistent halitosis (bad breath)
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Broken teeth
