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.

    Always a pleasure to be seen at Reardon Dental. All employees are very nice and go out of their way to accommodate you. They are great with children and adults and I highly recommend taking your dental needs to Reardon. Dr. Reardon has a great sense of humor and the dental hygienists are gentle with your teeth. They also have a wonderful orthodontist who is great with children. My daughter loves to ask questions and know what is happening and Dr. JR took the time to explain how it works and answer all of her questions!!

    Reardon Dental clinic is a excellent careing professional dental clinic. Everyone dentist and staff go out of their way to make your visit safe pleasant and stress free. I had knee replacement and I forgot I needed a antibiotic before my cleaning. They caught it thank God . Your records are checked before your treatment starts. Medications list are checked in case of changes. My son and wife tell me every time they have an appointment how safe pleasant and stress free their visit went. The staff is always mentioned how they went the extra mile to make the appointment a success. Looking forward to future visits. Never did I think I was overcharged or a procedure was pushed . Pricing is perfect. Financing is explained if needed. Honest dental care.

    My children and I have been going to Dr. Reardon's office since we moved to Phoenixville 26 years ago. The care we have received is excellent. Every employee we have met over the years has been personable, courteous and has made us feel comfortable. Janice has been my hygienist for several years and knows all my family. It is nice to be able to relax and feel comfortable because really I dread going to the dentist. Not so with Dr. Reardon's practice. Dr. Reardon is one of the best dentists that I have met. All of the dentists he has had in his practice have been phenomenal. I highly recommend this practice to anyone no matter what age. No need for a pediatric dentist...this practice is super with children. My 4 children and grandchildren are growing up using this practice.
