Periodontal Therapy in Orangeburg, NY

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common issue that can have a significant impact on your overall health. A consequence of dangerous dental bacteria, periodontal disease is thought of as a main factor in missing teeth in those past the age of 35 and has been linked to an array of general health concerns. These bacteria inhabit tartar deposits that build up on the enamel and produce toxins that eventually start to damage the gumline, bone, and various other structures that secure each tooth in the right position. Gum disease has three stages: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. Diagnosing and managing periodontal disease soon might cease the deterioration and safeguard your teeth and gums. At Dental Arts of Rockland, our experienced team offers a range of effective treatment options to stop the progression of gum disease and restore your smile's health. Call our office in Orangeburg, NY today to set up your next dental exam, and learn how we can help you enjoy stronger, healthier gums.

When it comes to periodontal disease, it's crucial to diagnose the problem and begin treatment as early as possible to prevent potential complications. At Dental Arts of Rockland, we utilize comprehensive screenings and digital imaging to detect signs of periodontal disease. The beginning phase of periodontal disease (gingivitis) is generally addressed with an in-office cleaning and enhanced at-home oral hygiene. To address periodontitis, the second level of periodontal disease, we perform scaling and root planing (SRP) using advanced ultrasonic instruments (which we may pair with locally administered antibiotics). Later-stage cases of gum disease may be best addressed through a surgical procedure, including osseous surgery and jawbone grafting treatments.

Gum disease is a serious condition, but it can be stopped and reversed with the right treatment. Some of the benefits of periodontal therapy at our Orangeburg, NY practice include:

  • Restores and preserves the health of the gums, decreasing swelling and bleeding
  • Stops tooth loss by strengthening the supporting structure of the teeth
  • Improves the look of the gums and teeth, bringing about a more attractive smile
  • Diminishes bad breath frequently caused by gum issues
  • Decreases the risk of some conditions connected to periodontal disease, such as heart disease and diabetes
  • Early treatment can stop more complex and intensive treatments in the future

Perfect combination of art and science. Dr Gellis is kind and very professional. He really knows his stuff and he makes an art of it. He’s quick and accurate. Combining that with the terrific staff makes a wonderful experience. So great that I recommended my spouse and he also had a great experience. We’re so glad we found Dr Gellis.

Dr. Gellis and his staff made me feel at ease and recommended a treatment plan that was tailored to my needs. I typically have some anxiety when going to the dentist , due to the sounds of the machinery. However, Dr. Gellis and his staff offered a laundry list of complimentary amenities such as a warm neck pillow, headphones, and warm hand wipe to put my anxieties at ease. They were even able to move up my appointment so that I could receive care sooner and did not need to prolong having my crown installed! Thank you so much for your thoughtful attention to detail and patient centered care approach! I'm already looking forward to my 6m cleaning!

Being a physician who was trained by international leaders in patient care, I expect any care that I receive personally to be of the highest standard, just as I would do. Dr. Gellis and his team are at the top of the pyramid, not only from a technical standpoint, but also in how they treat patients. This is the place to go for the best dentistry available.

Kind and friendly caring atmosphere. .I actually look forward to going to the dentist. But it’s even much more than that. I’ve had bad experiences in the past and because of that have neglected my teeth . They helped me through my anxiety and treated me as if I was someone special. And that’s just it . Every patient to them is special. And every person who works there from Dr Gellis ,Collen , Megan , Randy , whoever you deal with is caring and kind. I wish all medical practices cared the same way.
