A Great Smile Begins with Healthy and Vibrant Gums
Your gums are the foundation for your teeth, and when they are weak, damaged or diseased, they can significantly impact the integrity of your pearly whites, not to mention, your overall health.
However, over 75% of Americans suffer from gum disease and are completely unaware.
After reading this shocking statistic, we made it our responsibility to ensure our patients are not only educated on the various types of gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, but that they also understand the importance of proper gum care and know how to identify early signs of the infection.
With over 100 years of combined experience, Dr. Simons and the entire Reading Dental team have observed, cleaned and assessed hundreds of mouths, thousands of teeth, and countless sets of gums. And as a result, we are confident that our comprehensive preventative dental care treatment plan can keep your gums healthy, strong, and vibrant for years to come.
However, a preventative approach may not be enough for those who are already suffering from inflamed, receding and/or bleeding gums. The good news is that, when treated early enough, gingivitis and periodontitis are reversible with the assistance of a professional gum and implant specialist.
If you are worried about the health of your gums, fear not. As a Reading Dental patient, you will gain immediate access to an entire team of compassionate and experienced doctors, dental hygienists and, gum and implant specialists, who are prepared and eager to support you no matter your situation.
Dr. Rosen, our in-house gum and implant specialist, also known as a periodontist, is available to not only provide you with the essential gum and tooth care that you need now, but also to help you prevent future damage and decay through a personalized treatment plan and continued education.Our comprehensive periodontal services, much like all of our preventative and cosmetic dental services, begin with a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums and mouth. Once complete, Dr. Rosen will speak with you one-on-one about his recommended treatment plan based on your specific situation.
Below is a brief description of the essential periodontal services that we provide in-house daily.
- Gum Disease Treatment– includes a professional cleaning to prevent any further damage to your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw. If the decay is extensive, Dr. Rosen may recommend the removal of unhealthy tissue as well as prescribe an antibiotic to fight off infection.
- Dental Implants– are metal posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line. Once in place, Dr. Rosen can insert a replacement tooth or bridge onto them.
- Tooth Extractions– sometimes teeth need to be removed due to decay, disease and trauma. If you are feeling uneasy about this, or any, procedure, Dr. Rosen and his team are available to discuss helpful tips to overcome any worries, concerns or anxieties you may be feeling leading up to and after the treatment.
No matter your situation, whether you’re in need of a dental implant, or an extensive cleaning to remove traces of gum disease, the team at Reading Dental, has you and your mouth covered.
It is important to note that due to the specialized nature of periodontal dentistry, a consultation appointment is required prior to receiving any kind of treatment by Dr. Rosen and his team.
Of course, no two patients, teeth or smiles are the same, so we want to meet with you in person to give you our best advice. To get Dr. Rosen’s personalized professional recommendation, call us at 781-944-5020, or fill out our quick form on the right to set up your complimentary consultation.
