Frequently Asked Questions About Periodontics in New City, NY
What does a periodontist do?
A periodontist is a dental specialist who devotes their practice to diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and other conditions that impact the supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontists also have advanced training in the placement of dental implants.
What type of procedures does a periodontist perform?
At Hudson Valley Periodontics & Implantology, we offer patients from New City scaling and root planing, laser gum therapy, and periodontal maintenance programs for gum disease. Our practice also provides a number of additional periodontal treatments to restore the health and appearance of your gums and jaw, including bone grafting, gum grafting, bone regeneration, and crown lengthening. We perform tooth extractions with ridge preservation, and we can restore your extracted tooth with a dental implant to prevent bone loss in the jaw.
What is the difference between a dentist and a periodontist?
Periodontists and general dentists both earn a DDS or DMD degree from an accredited dental school, but after graduating, a periodontist continues with two to three additional years of education and training focusing on periodontal health and implant dentistry.
Is a periodontist covered by insurance?
Necessary periodontal treatments like scaling and root planing are typically covered by dental insurance, but insurance can vary from one plan to the next. We suggest that you call your dental insurance provider directly to learn about your benefits. Our billing team is always happy to help you understand your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs.
What are the common signs of gum disease?
Gum disease can be completely reversed when it is diagnosed and treated in its early stages. When gum disease is more advanced, the active infection can be cured, but the damage caused to your gums and teeth will need to be repaired with additional periodontal treatments like gum grafting.
Can gum disease be cured?
The most common signs of gum disease are redness, swelling, bleeding, and bad breath. If left untreated, your gums will begin to recede and your teeth may start to feel loose. Eventually, your teeth can shift in your mouth or even fall out.

Dr. Tucker and staff are the best of the best. Excellent skill and craftsmanship by Dr. Tucker. I had a tooth extraction in March, as well as a dental implant recently, and both went well, done quickly, keeps you updated on progress as you go, with virtually no pain afterward. A trusted professional I’d highly recommend. – L.E.
Dr. Tucker and his staff are amazing at what they do. Comfort and professionalism is a priority there. He is very efficient, and the final product is always better than expected. Will NEVER go anywhere else. I travel over an hour to see him. 1000% worth it. Thank you so much for restoring my teeth… and confidence. – L.P.
