Services & Procedures

At South Shore Long Island Periodontics & Implantology, we offer an incredible range of services so that we can meet all of your needs related to your periodontal health.

Each of our doctors is Board Certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and has the experience and expertise needed to provide exceptional care. We see patients who have been referred by their primary dental care providers and also those who have self-referred to our office.

A periodontist is a dentist who has specialized in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Each of our doctors has also specialized in cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you improve the appearance of your smile, so that you can always put your best face forward.

Treating Periodontal Disease at All Ages and Stages

Periodontal disease can strike at any age. No matter how old you are or how advanced your disease is, we will help stop this chronic infection in its tracks. We also have a number of treatments to repair the damage that the disease causes to both the soft gum tissue and the firm dental bone that helps to hold your teeth in place.

From deep cleaning treatments to antibiotics to surgical procedures, we’ve got you covered.

Dental Implants to Restore Lost Teeth

Periodontal disease is the number one cause of missing teeth in American adults. Just because you’ve lost teeth, however, doesn’t mean they have to stay missing. Our dentists are specialists in IMPLANTOLOGY – the art and science of replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

Perhaps you’ve been told in the past that you can’t get dental implants. If so, please see us for a second opinion. We can likely recommend a range of options that will help prepare your bone for a dental implant, from grafting to sinus lifts.

Advanced Technology for Superior Care

Dental technology is constantly evolving, and we are dedicated to staying on top of the latest developments. Before we invest in a new technology, however, we ask ourselves whether it will significantly improve our patients’ comfort, efficiency of treatment, and final outcomes.

One particular technology that we are proud of is the I-CAT® Cone Beam CT Scanner. This technology allows us to create a 3-D model of your head so that we can plan treatment and place implants with incredible precision and predictability. We also perform microbiological testing to identify the exact strain of bacteria causing problems as well as its susceptibilities so that target treatment with minimal side effects. We encourage you to visit our Technology page so that you can see the high-tech solutions we’ve implemented in our practice.
