Periodontal Treatments

Periodontal Treatments

A beautiful smile can be said to be our greatest asset. However, we often forget that it consists of a lot more than just our teeth. The gums are particularly important, because if they are damaged, injured or otherwise reduced, your teeth can become loose - or fall out outright. That’s why it’s very important to prevent gum diseases, diagnose them on time and treat them successfully with periodontal care.

Periodontal Problems

Periodontal problems start at slight gingivitis: a condition which may give you the impression that your teeth hurt. It can cause your gums to bleed and hurt - but usually little more. On the other end of the scale is severe periodontitis: an illness which destroys your gums and the other tissues supporting your teeth (i.e. muscles and ligaments).

It is very important to treat such problems - even though they may appear fairly harmless, to begin with. Healthy gums are the best defense against loose and missing teeth; failing to be diligent can lead to much bigger problems down the line!

How a Periodontist Will Help

The first thing a periodontist does is take a look at your gums. If you’re lucky, irritated or bleeding gums may be the result of a poorly chosen toothbrush or frequent flossing and not any periodontal disease!

If you’re a little less lucky and suffering from periodontal illness, your periodontist can help you diagnose your gums; restore comfort and some measure of health immediately; offer you a treatment course that’ll have you back to normal as quickly as possible.

The periodontists at Eagle Family Smiles are experts at dealing with minor and major cases, including severe forms of gum illness - even if you’re a patient with a problematic medical history. Our services include root cleaning and even debridement, where damaged or dead tissue is removed - so you can be sure that we’ll restore your gums to health in a way that’s pain-free, hassle-free and, most importantly, safe.

To find out more about how we can treat your gums, and our other range of dental services, call us today at (610) 458-5165 . We’ll be happy to answer all your questions.

Our Happy Customers

"Always an excellent experience. I use to hate going to the dentist but now I actually look forward to going. He is the best and thank God he practices in the Bronx. My family and I love going to him.Dr. Bhadresh Makani was very considerate when I went in for some fillings. He made sure I knew exactly what he was talking about, even showed me pictures of my cavities and explaining the filling. I shared that I was reluctant towards being numbed, and he was so kind. He worked with me in letting me tell him if I felt sensitivity, and only then would he numb me. When he did, I didn't even feel the needle which was much appreciated! He was gentle and efficient. It was also probably one of the quickest fillings I've had done, but I knew it was very well done. I am happy to have gone to Dr. Bhadresh Makani's office for my dental needs."

"It was such a pleasure visiting Eagle Family Smiles. Elise did a superb job with my dental cleaning, taking her time and being very gentle and thorough. It was great seeing the friendly and familiar faces of the staff as well as meeting Dr. Makani and the Office Manager Swatti. Dr. Makani was very professional but friendly and conservative in his treatment recommendations. I would highly recommend this office."
