About Us

Westlake Periodontics

Dr. Sazima and his team at Westlake Periodontics offers a range of approaches to your periodontal care and will personally interact with you to come up with the best treatment options for your dental concerns. We are committed to providing oral surgery, extractions, bone grafting, affordable dental implants and excellent follow-up care that improves general pain or resolves problems in your mouth completely. We will personally follow up to make sure that general pain is relieved, problems are resolved, and dental health improves. Dr. Sazima also works with insurance companies so that patients can receive their benefits whether they have private or public coverage; he facilitates financing if there is need for it as well!

Same Day Dental:

Throughout his career, Dr. Sazima has placed more than 10,000 dental implants in soft and/or minimal bone and many of them were on patients requiring a sinus lift. He also does snap-in dentures as well as single and multiple implants that he guarantees for life, and will replace them costing nothing at all! We cannot always guarantee a service on the day of your appointment. Additional services do not apply.


State Of The Art Surgical Technology:

Among our many tools, Dr. Sazima also uses Powertome which allows for tooth extraction that is extremely precise with little to no associated bone loss when using this tool! The piezosurgery technique also makes our work time efficient by cutting around tissue without damage, while maximizing patient comfort levels.

Our Services

Areas of Expertise

Same Day Procedures

We understand how busy everyones lives can be. At Westlake Periodontics, we offer many services that can be completed the same day as your appointment. Simply contact our office to see if we can do what you need on the same day as your visit.

Affordable Dental Implants

Dental implants are a standard in tooth replacement, because they fit, feel and even function just like a natural tooth. It is the best, long lasting option for a replacement.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums, jaw or surrounding oral and facial structures. The recovery period post oral surgery is relatively quick, meaning you may be able to resume normal activities in about 2-3 days.

Treatment of Gum Disease

Gum Disease is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and without treatment can destroy the bone that supports your teeth. Treatment starts with the removal of plaque and hardened deposits on the tooth root surfaces.


A periodontist, like Dr. Sazima, is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal, or disease, and in the placement of dental implants. They also help you manage any signs of gum problems like oral inflammation.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Cosmetic gum surgery is a dental treatment that involves surgically modifying gum tissue to improve the appearance of your smile.

Treatment of Loose Teeth & Bite Problems

Loose teeth in adults can sometimes result from poor dental hygiene, advanced gum disease, a facial injury, teeth grinding and even pregnancy.

Tooth Extractions

Sometimes teeth may need to be removed due to decay, disease, crowding or even a traumatic incident. If you feel you have a tooth that may need removed, our professionals at Westlake Periodontics can ensure that you receive the best care possible.

Extractions and Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure preformed using transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones in the jaw that anchors teeth, using one or more different bone grafting options.

Gum Grafting

If you or your dentist notices gum recession, it is possible you may need a gum graft, which involves carefully placing small amounts of new tissue in an area where little or no gum tissue currently exists.

We Keep Up With
Modern Use Technology

We use traditional instruments, as well as powertome to extract teeth with little or no bone loss. We are one of the few providers in Northeastern Ohio using Piezosurgery, which is an ultrasound technique for cutting bone without damaging surrounding tissue.


Implantology is a specific type of dentistry that deals with the placement of artificial teeth in your jaw. It expands the tooth socket for implant placement while minimizing or eliminating alveolar bone loss, which is what makes it so quick and precise. This means a more comfortable experience for patients, who will also heal faster than usual.


The Piezosurgery device allows doctors to make very accurate cuts into bones without damaging surrounding soft tissue, leading to better results and less discomfort on the patient! But that’s not all: it works quickly because its small hand piece can access your mouth easily (without much vibration or noise), making you feel more at ease from start to finish!
