Gum Therapy and Periodontal Care
Swollen, red and bleeding gums are signs of an unhealthy mouth. In addition to bad breath, these conditions can affect your total body health, contributing to heart disease and other serious illnesses. Thanks to the many advanced treatments our periodontists offer, Wellesley Dental Arts can help you reverse — and manage — your periodontal disease. Soft tissue grafts can cover tooth roots, decrease sensitivity, or replace missing tissue from a receding gum line. Grafts can be taken from the roof of your mouth or other areas. Our Wellesley periodontist‘s expert techniques can create an effective outcome that you will enjoy for years to come.
You can rely on the experienced Wellesley Dental Arts endodontists at to alleviate your tooth pain due to inflamed or infected tooth pulp. Endodontic treatment, commonly known as a root canal, is one of the most common dental procedures — nearly 16 million root canals are performed nationally each year. By incorporating advanced technologies and the latest anesthetics, the Wellesley Dental Arts multi-specialty team of dentists can perform root canal therapy and root canal surgery that is nearly pain free.
After your comprehensive initial exam, one of our endodontists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that optimizes your oral health. It’s this personal touch that has made Wellesley Dental Arts the practice of choice for patients throughout New England.
At some point in their lives, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed. A wisdom tooth, also called a third molar, can grow sideways or become trapped under the gums. It can also become infected, decayed or cause the rest of your teeth to move out of place.
At Wellesley Dental Arts, our team of oral surgeons have performed many wisdom teeth extractions. Most wisdom teeth surgery procedures go very well, take less than an hour, and can be done right in our offices. Before removing your wisdom teeth, we’ll walk you through every step of the procedure and answer all your questions about wisdom teeth extraction.
We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise and we at Wellesley Dental Arts will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Regardless if it is something as simple as a tooth filling or a complicated procedure requiring a cosmetic dentist, we can provide you with assistance.

“TMJ” stands for the temporomandibular joints, which are the small joints in front of each ear that attach your lower jaw to your skull. They allow you to open and close your mouth, chew, speak, and swallow. TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including major trauma such as an auto accident, teeth-clenching, or systemic joint disease like rheumatoid arthritis.
There are different types of TMJ problems that respond to a number of TMJ treatment methods, ranging from very conservative therapies to more aggressive approaches. Our multi-specialty dentists at Wellesley Dental Arts are highly skilled in TMJ treatments. Together we’ll work closely with you to determine the best course of TMJ treatment to alleviate your pain.
