Patient Reviews

"I was treated like a king whenever I came; everyone here cares about the patient, and I enjoyed my experience."
"Everyone that I've spoken with has been so genuine and so caring, so understanding."
"I got a goody bag after the first visit... they thought of everything! I can't brag enough."
"The team over here is just outstanding. If I ever had to do it again, this is the only place I would ever go to."

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the ideal replacement for missing teeth because they look and feel just like natural teeth. More importantly, they are permanent. We can provide bone augmenting procedures to ensure that the dental implants have a strong supporting foundation when you are chewing. Even if the implant is replacing a front tooth, we will create an implant that looks so natural, no one would know you have an implant there.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Periodontal care includes therapy that provides aesthetic solutions. We have procedures to correct the appearance of receding gums, for example. Some patients come to us with a "gummy smile." In this case, we can re-contour the gum line to reveal the white surface of the tooth underneath. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, give us a call.

Periodontal Care

Periodontists are primarily concerned with the health of your gums. Periodontal disease is the #1 reason adults lose teeth. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to prevent that from happening. Recognizing gum disease early and treating it before it becomes a serious infection is vital to saving teeth. If you are experiencing signs of gum disease, please contact our office without delay.

do you have any questions for us  Today?
  • I am a new patient.

    Welcome to Baton Rouge Perio! If you haven't yet, we'd like you to start by contacting us to schedule your first appointment. Give us a call, or request an appointment online, and we will get in touch with you in return. We look forward to meeting you in our office! Please let us know how we can make your visit comfortable for you.

  • I was referred. What are my next steps?

    Welcome! Your dentist will be sharing necessary information with us about your case and history. When you call us to make your appointment, we will let you know if we need more information from you. We will review the details and work to outline a treatment plan that will restore you to health, in cooperation with your dentist if needed. We'll discuss it with you during your initial visit and exam, and take the first steps forward.

  • I need a dental implant.

    Dental implants are a great reason to come see a periodontist. We will be able to create the ideal environment for an implant to be successfully placed, and last you for years to come. We'll address gum disease if it's present, augment bone if needed so it can be a solid support for the implant. The first step should be to contact us for an appointment. We'll perform an exam, and talk about the ideal results you hope to achieve. When we know what your goals are, we'll give you a cost, answer your questions, and when you're ready, we'll move forward with your treatment plan.

  • I need gum disease treatment.

    Gum disease is a slow progressing and usually painless infection. If you have noticed blood when you brush your teeth or have experienced other symptoms of gum disease, it is important that we stop the disease as soon as possible. If you have been referred by your dentist, or advised to find a periodontist, it's because our main concern is the health of your gums. Call us today to schedule an exam and consultation with Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman. Please don't delay; if left untreated, gum disease can eventually lead to tooth loss.

  • I don’t have dental insurance.

    Not having insurance doesn't mean that you don't need, or deserve, the care that we provide. We have in-house options to help you manage the costs and we will work with you to find a solution. Please don't let insurance stop you from contacting us to make an appointment. Your health is more important.

  • I have other questions.

    Excellent! We welcome all questions. Just give us a call, send a message through the site, or send an email. You should not move forward with any treatment plan until you understand all the aspects. If you simply want to know what your first visit will entail, we're happy to answer. Please don't hesitate to ask us for more information at any step of the way.
