Periodontal gum disease can do major damage to not only your smile, but also your health. Studies have shown that periodontal gum disease can be directly linked to much more serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer and pneumonia.
In the Bensalem and Southampton, Pennsylvania area, there is an expert in non surgical periodontal disease treatments. Dr. Robert Levine and the staff at Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics specializes in periodontal gum disease in both the early and advanced stages.
Dr. Levine is a highly specialized and renowned implant surgeon and peridontist. Board Certified (Diplomate) by the American Board of Peridontology, he is Chairman Emeritus of the division of Periodontics (1984-2003) at the Albert Einstein Medical Center. Currently, he is a Clinical Associate Professor in Post-Graduate Periodontics, Perio-Prosthesis and Implantology at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine.
At the core of Dr. Levine’s periodontal disease treatments is his belief in non surgical treatments unless absolutely necessary. Dr. Levine prides himself on the fact that he is very conservative in his periodontal disease treatments and treatment recommendations and limits surgery to only those circumstances where it is absolutely necessary. Even when it comes to advanced periodontal gum disease, Dr. Levine can generally treat his Bensalem and Southampton, PA patients using non-surgical periodontal therapy. This ensures that your gum and tissues quality is stronger in order to limit the areas needed for surgery.
In the beginning stages of periodontal gum disease more conservative techniques can be used to help heal the damaged tissue. This consists of “root planing” with a comfortable ultrasonic instrument which is placed between the tooth and gum tissue to remove any plaque and calculus below the gum line. Antibiotics are then placed under the gum to continue with the healing process.
