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

  • Lillie D.9/14/2020

    Had an appointment at Reardon today for a fractured lower incisor, and must say in my 33 years on earth this was the most pleasant and best dental experience I've ever had. Their facility is large, clean, and very well maintained. The staff is excellent, in that they're very friendly and good at what they do. They are practicing as safely as I've seen any medical facility practice during the pandemic. My appointment was started on time (which never happens for any doctors appointment) and I was out of there quickly. Fast, efficient, good at what they do. I will definitely be returning to this practice and highly encourage anyone in the Phoenixville area to look no further for a dentist!

    I used to live in Kimberton, but moved two years ago to Conshohocken. However, I like Reardon Dental so much that I still travel back to Phoenixville for my dental care. They stay current with dental procedures and techniques and I always feel good after getting my teeth cleaned.

  • Maureen S.7/12/2020

    Reardon Dental doctors and staff were total pros from the moment I scheduled the appointment. Great communication prior to my appointment. When I arrived at the office the screening, the waiting room set up, the hygienist and Dr O’Brien all worked together to make everything go seamlessly and safely. Thank you all; I know that you are doing important work under difficult circumstances. I am so grateful!

    I really enjoy coming here. The staff is friendly and always great at answering my (many) questions. Both myself and my husband go here and I realize my anxiety about the dentist has greatly decreased since I’ve been coming here. I would highly recommend them.
