If you need the care of an expert periodontist, you will be very glad that you found our periodontal office, Mitchell Bloom. Our Lenox Hill periodontist, Dr. Bloom, will be able to provide you with exemplary periodontal care, for a full range of periodontal services.
Patients come to our periodontal practice to see our Lenox Hill periodontist to receive many different types of periodontal treatments. Many patients come to see us to get dental implants to have the missing teeth replaced. Our periodontist is extremely skilled in this procedure, and is able to provide patients with dental implants which are precisely placed in the right location so that the dental implant treatment is successful. If patients have been told they are not a good candidate for getting dental implants because their jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery, our periodontist will be able to provide you with a bone grafting treatment. This treatment is usually able to thicken the jawbone so that you become a good candidate for dental implants. If you have gums that are unhealthy, and you are suffering from gum disease, our periodontist will be able to help your gums return to good health. Sometimes all that is needed to get gums healthy again is for our periodontist to provide a scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will remove all bacteria, tartar, infection, and plaque from the deep pockets that have formed in the gums. This allows the deep pockets to heal and for gum infection to be cleared up. In more advanced cases of gum disease, our periodontist may need to provide other treatments including pocket elimination surgery. In order to improve the look of a gummy smile, or to allow a patient to be able to successfully get a dental crown, our periodontist can perform crown lengthening surgery. Many other periodontal procedures are also offered at our periodontal practice.
