Periodontics

Periodontics is the dental specialty that works with both the diseases of the gums (See Periodontal Disease) and the upper jaw bone that supports the teeth. Because these two areas are the basic supporting structures of the teeth, Periodontics is the specialty that provides the expertise for dental implants.

A dentist practicing this specialty is called a Periodontist and has a certification in this field from the American Dental Association (ADA).

Here at Reardon Dental, our Periodontist is Dr. Douglas Reigh. Dr. Reigh received ADA board certification and is a diplomate of the board of periodontology. He is also a member of State and local dental associations. (See Dr Reigh‘s full bio).

Dr. Christopher Roxas is our Perio-Prosthodontist.  In addition to specializing in periodontics, Dr. Chris specializes in periodontal fixed prosthetics as well as full mouth rehabilitation (See Dr. Chris’s full bio).

Dr. Reigh and Dr. Chris are experts in the diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental Implants.

Dental Implants: When you lose a tooth, a dental implant may be needed to replace the tooth root and crown. These implants are simply “anchors” that permanently support replacement teeth. They are secure and durable and can be cleaned and cared for much like your natural teeth. Dental implants are one of the best options in the replacement of missing teeth (See also Bridges & Dentures)

The procedure for placement of dental implants requires a titanium root be fitted into your jaw to replace the lost tooth’s root. Once the implant is anchored into the bone, the bone around the implant requires six weeks to six months of healing. Once the bone has healed, a support post and replacement tooth is anchored onto the implant.

What Our Patients Are Saying

    Reardon Dental is excellent and I highly recommend. This is my 4th appointment there and both the doctors and office staff are courteous, professional and friendly. I recently had an emergency with a broken tooth. I called after hours and got Dr. Reardon on the phone. He was very helpful and saw me immediately the next day. Dr. Reardon seems very accomplished and knowledgeable. He explained all of my options and took care of my problem in a caring and skillful fashion. I am very happy to have Reardon Dental to rely on now for my dental needs.

    I love it here! I have hated going to the dentist my whole life and this was the first time I left a dentist office feeling happy. The staff is so sweet and explain everything thoroughly. My dental hygienist was so funny and made nice conversation with me the whole time. Everything was pain free and so easy! I even got a free coffee travel mug for being a first time patient. 🙂
