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.

Your Gums, Your Mouth, Your Health

Did you know that one of the best ways to take care of your health is to take care of your gums and mouth? A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a “perio-systemic link.” Gum disease may be  connected to all sorts of inflammatory diseases that affect the lungs, heart, kidneys, brain, joints, and other parts of the body. Dr. Horowitz’s periodontal practice is dedicated to improving the health of his patients through improving the health of their gums and mouth.

Call For An Appointment Today

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

The Perio-Systemic Link

Follow this space to learn more about the perio-systemic link, and how recent studies suggest a relationship between periodontitis (inflammation of the gums) and other systemic diseases. Recent studies suggest the bacteria present around your teeth and the health of your gums and mouth is connected to your overall health.

Plaque & Your Gums

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.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontitis, also called gum disease or periodontal disease, is a serious inflammatory process that damages soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth. The same process caused by bacteria around your teeth can lead to bone loss around dental implants.

Laser Therapy Treatments

New laser protocols are used to treat gingivitis, periodontal disease, and help speed recovery after dental surgery. These advanced methods can help reduce treatment times and make the processes more comfortable for our patients. Certain specific protocols, which Dr. Horowitz uses, target and kill the bacteria which may affect local and systemic inflammatory related diseases.

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.

Introducing Teledentistry

We are open, by appointment only, during the coronavirus pandemic. Call or email us for a teledentistry appointment to address dental emergencies, including tooth pain and dental infections. It is clear that dental professionals need to diverge from past practices. Dentists have always asked patients if they have had any changes in their recent health history and how they are feeling.
