Our periodontist, Dr. Loshak, received several more years of training after dental school to become a master of periodontics. He has a passion for his work and is happy to educate you and discuss your periodontal needs. During his assessment of your mouth, he will carefully check for signs of gum disease. Depending on the severity of your issues, our periodontist can recommend various treatments.

If your gum disease is severe enough to require artificial tooth replacement, look no further than our fabrication lab. Our on-site lab cuts the creation time in half, getting your new prosthetics that much faster. And, if you need small adjustments, it's much easier to go back and get them taken care of.

Gum/Periodontal Disease

Did you know that one in two American adults are living with some form of periodontal disease? Periodontal disease comes from plaque and tartar accumulating on the teeth. Eventually, this plaque calcifies and turns into calculus, and we don't mean the math you studied in high school. Calculus is impossible to remove with a toothbrush and floss. These accumulations harbor oral bacteria, which sparks an inflammatory response in the gum tissue. That leads to sensitivity, redness, swelling, and even infection. After that, the gums start to separate from the teeth, leaving “pockets” in which more bacteria can find a home.

The pockets can become infected, and decay can begin in the tooth itself below the gum line. If left untreated, the gums can start to deteriorate and not support the teeth enough. Untreated, it can cause tooth loss. Oral bacteria can also target the underlying bone tissue, leading to bone and tooth loss. If left untreated, oral bacteria stemming from periodontal disease can even leach into the bloodstream. This can cause serious issues like diabetes, heart disease, and even some forms of cancer.

People who smoke, grind or clench their teeth, are under a lot of stress, take certain medications, have poor nutrition, or are diabetic are at a higher risk for developing periodontal disease. Fortunately, periodontists can identify and treat gum disease early. That way, it can help people to protect their overall health.

Periodontists: Experts in Periodontal Disease

Dr. Kevin Loshak, Westchester Periodontist

To become a periodontist, dentists must complete normal dental school and then apply for a periodontal residency. They will spend an extra 2-3 years learning more about periodontal disease, oral anatomy, and the placement of dental implants. Periodontics is one of nine dental specialties by the American Dental Association.

Periodontists are often called on by general and family dentists to handle complex cases. They have to do with gum disease or the placement of dental implants. As true experts in dentistry, periodontists are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. In fact, the American Academy of Periodontology recommends visiting your periodontist at least once a year for a comprehensive periodontal exam. During these exams, your doctor will check the health of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone tissue. If he spots any problems, your periodontist will be able to address them early. Here are a few of the different ways periodontists help their patients.
