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.

  • Shannon F.2/25/2021

    I had an awesome first experience at Reardon. My hygienist Ashley was awesome! She was outgoing and kept me at ease throughout my appointment. She took the time to explain everything I needed to know to me and answered all of my lingering questions. Dr. Miller was also great!

    Laura M.2/24/2021

    Dr. Reardon is a very busy man and I can see why! He ensures the work is done right and if he can make it better he does. I was in the office for a bonding repair and at the end of my appointment he came in to check the work and then went the extra mile to perfect the look of the bonding. He is also very kind and just a really good guy!

  • Maureen M.2/22/2021

    Always such a friendly visit! I have full trust in every person there. They listen and offer the best care.

    Taryn F.2/08/2021

    Staff were great with my 5 year old getting a cavity filled! They were gentle and talked with him the whole way.

  • Kimberly S.2/04/2021

    Every staff member we encountered (front desk, dental assistant, Dr. Feller herself, hygienist) put my daughter’s fears at ease during her first visit to the practice. Although our morning began with tears and trepidation in the parking lot, we left with a confident little girl no longer anxious about dental appointments. We are so pleased to have found such a warm & professional dental practice in Reardon Dental.
    Edited 2/4/2021 to add:
    My children have been patients at Reardon for several years, but I wanted to add that we had a very positive experience with Dr. Prehn for my daughter’s first orthodontic consult today. Dr Prehn was so thorough and straightforward. I didn’t have any questions because she covered everything so concisely and succinctly.
    While my daughter remains nervous about dental appointments in general, she trusts the providers at Reardon. Thank you once again for your patience and kindness!

    Lois R.2/04/2021

    My experience was great. I was taken on time for my appointment. Kristen was very careful about my sensitivity during the cleaning. Dr. Reardon was extremely helpful with suggestions for improving my daily cleaning regimen.

  • Michael B.1/27/2021

    Great Dentist Office. I highly recommend Reardon Dental

    Laura B.1/21/2021

    Reardon Dental has been awesome for my family of 5. All of the dentists, hygienists and the orthodontist we’ve seen have been great but we all especially love Dr. Reardon. We’ve had two emergency situations in recent months and we were able to be seen quickly because we are close to two offices. Dr. Reardon even saw my son when the office wasn’t open. I feel that caring like that is very rare anymore. I can’t say enough good things!
