Periodontal Disease and Dental Implants

Welcome to the dental practice of Dr. Robert A. Horowitz. Our office is focused on periodontal disease, preventing and treating periodontal infection, and dental implants.  The treatment of gum disease, periodontics, is all about saving teeth for our patients. When we are unable to prevent tooth loss, we use restorative dentistry to replace teeth with dental implants. Our experienced periodontal treatment and dental implant team is dedicated to offering the highest levels of patient care. We do this through the use of state-of-the-art technology and by establishing relationships of trust. Our team works hard to provide you with quality treatments to restore your gum tissue and oral health in a caring, supportive environment.

Call us today to make your appointment with Dr. Horowitz and his team. Learn more about periodontal disease, periodontal care, and dental implants in Scarsdale, New York, and the surrounding areas of Westchester and New York City.

Periodontal Disease and Dental Implants - Latest Techniques

As a member of the faculty at New York University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Robert Horowitz has lectured, coordinated and participated in research projects on the subjects of periodontal treatment, the use of lasers in procedures for the treatment and healing of gum tissue and hard tissue, and dental implants. In addition, he has been frequently published in leading dental journals.

Innovative Technology

Dr. Horowitz is dedicated to keeping up-to-date on the latest dental technologies. He carefully selects and invests in only the highest-quality devices for improving your oral health. Our office uses innovative technologies, like high-resolution digital X-rays, cone beam 3D volumetric scanning, surgical operating microscopes, and laser therapy. These technologies help detect and treat underlying dental issues such as inflammation and infection caused by bacteria that can cause tooth loss.

What Sets Us Apart

Performing cutting-edge research in making advancements in new and innovative procedures is one of Dr. Horowitz’s passions. He is actively involved in research in bone grafting, regrowth of gum and bone tissue around teeth, extraction socket healing, and the placement of dental implants in areas of limited available bone. He uses high-resolution equipment to help him spot problems at an early stage before inflammation, infection, or tooth loss. This leads to more successful outcomes.

Periodontitis & Gingivitis

There are two types of Gum Disease:

Gingivitis. This is the earliest form of problems with gum tissue. Plaque buildup at the gum line causes inflammation and some bleeding near the gums, and may lead to infection.

Periodontitis. This occurs when supporting bone and fibers around the teeth are damaged in this second-stage of periodontal disease, causing bone damage and loss.

Gum Disease Prevention

Visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams is necessary for helping to prevent periodontal disease. Daily oral hygiene at home and away also is a vital part of prevention. Brushing and flossing will keep teeth clear of bacteria that can lead to plaque build-up, inflammation, infection, and the decay of your teeth.
