Periodontal treatments are a specialty within dentistry that focuses on your gums and bone.

Periodontal Disease: What is it & How Is It Treated?

Periodontal disease can start as a simple gum inflammation nut can lead to serious conditions that can and cause major damage to the structure of your mouth. When periodontal disease is at its worst, you can even lose some of your teeth.

For many people, the natural formation of plaque and tartar happens at a much faster pace and makes their mouths susceptible to periodontal disease. If you do have periodontal disease, our treatment recommendations may include more frequent visits to the office for teeth cleaning and an examination. We may also perform a special procedure called dental scaling and root planing. This is a super deep cleaning process that removes dangerous plaque and tarter that can build up, even under your gum line.

Dr. Herman and the staff here at Advanced Dentistry of Long Island are experts at caring for patients with periodontal disease. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease we will set up a long-term plan of action tailored especially for you. We provide the periodontal treatment right here in our Woodbury, Long Island office, as well as the education and tools you need to avoid severe damage to your gums and bone over time, and maintain a healthy smile for life.

Our number one goal is your comfort and wellness. Want more information about our periodontal treatments? Simply call the Woodbury office at 516-921-8010 or feel free to make an appointment for a consultation by filling out the form to the right. We look forward to serving you!


Scaling & Planing

The scaling and root planing procedure is a deep cleaning treatment that involves scraping above and below the gum line.


Dental Implants

Today, modern technology makes dental implants a possibility for more people than ever before. The miracle of dental implants is that they are actually artificial tooth roots, which are surgically (and permanently) placed into the jawbone.


“I have had poor teeth my entire adult life. Dr. Herman gave me the facts and he and his staff worked miracles! I can’t thank him enough.”
