Frequently Asked Questions About Periodontics in Pomona, NY
What does a periodontist do?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in diagnosing and treating gum disease, along with other diseases and conditions found in the supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontists also specialize in the placement of dental implants.
What type of procedures does a periodontist perform?
At Hudson Valley Periodontics & Implantology, we offer patients from Pomona scaling and root planing, laser gum therapy, and periodontal maintenance programs for gum disease. We also provide a number of periodontal treatments that restore the health and/or appearance of your gums and jaw, including bone grafting, gum grafting, bone regeneration, and crown lengthening. We offer tooth extractions with ridge preservation, and can place dental implants to restore your extracted tooth.
What is the difference between a dentist and a periodontist?
General dentists and periodontists both graduate from dental school, but a periodontist goes on to receive two to three additional years of education and training in order to specialize in treating gums and implant dentistry.
Is a periodontist covered by insurance?
In most cases, medically necessary periodontal treatment is covered by insurance. The best way to find out if your treatment is covered is to call your dental insurance company directly. Our team is also happy to help you understand your benefits and any out-of-pocket costs.
Can gum disease be cured?
When treated in its early stages with scaling and root planing, gum disease can be cured before any lasting damage occurs. If gum disease is more advanced, the active infection can be cured, but the damage it has caused will need to be addressed with additional periodontal procedures.
What are the common signs of gum disease?
The most common signs of gum disease include swelling, redness, bleeding, bad breath, and gum recession. As gum disease progresses, you may notice that your teeth feel loose and shift in your mouth, which can eventually lead to tooth loss.
