Periodontist and Dental Implants Surgeon for Washington DC, Chevy Chase MD, and Bethesda, MD

Peridontal & Implant Associates of Greater Washington provide gum disease treatment and dental implants to Washington DC, Chevy Chase MD, and Bethesda MD. Our motto is “We Treat People, Not Teeth”. We offer you top-notch services using cutting-edge technologies and techniques, delivered by Dr. Karl Rose, who has over 30 years’ experience and who is consistently ranked as one of the best periodontists in Washington DC

Our office specializes in gum disease treatment, special adult orthodontics, and dental implant therapies including diagnosis and treatment planning of dental conditions requiring jaw reconstruction and the placement of dental implants. Our commitment to the best, most advanced techniques means that we offer treatments that are relatively fast, easy and painless compared to more traditional methods. A few of our specialties include:

  • Dental Implants – The best solution for damaged or missing teeth is to replace them with permanent implants. Our implants not only secure prosthetic teeth firmly to the jawbone, giving you a healthy, confident smile, but also strengthen the jaw itself, supporting those bones and the whole structure of the face. Dr. Rose has been successfully installing dental implants since 1986 and is one of the best periodontists in the Washington DC area.
  • Laser gum treatment (LANAP) –LANAP is a revolutionary treatment technique that uses lasers to remove diseased gum tissue rather than traditional surgery. The benefits are enormous: the laser technology selectively destroys damaged tissue while preserving healthy tissue, reducing the impact on the patient and speeding recovery time and success, the laser itself facilitates blood clotting and tissue regeneration, and the laser destroys the harmful bacteria that caused the gum disease in the first place. In addition to LANAP, we offer other laser-related treatments to minimize the amount of complicated, painful surgery our patients must endure. See our laser surgery treatment page for more information.

Dr. Rose is fantastic.

I would never consider anyone else. I have been a patient for many years and have had several gum and implant surgeries and regular periodontal care. Dr. Rose has provided first rate care with extraordinary skill and expertise, intelligence, confidence, thoroughness and thoughtfulness, tremendous concern for my well being and comfort, and always excellent humor. The entire staff is superb - professional, helpful, friendly, punctual and attentive.

  • Teeth in a Day – Our combination of technology and expertise allows us to offer “Teeth In a Day”, where we can give you a full set of dental implants in as little as a single visit. This usually means placing a dental implant and, at the same appointment, providing a temporary crown or bridge that is attached to an implant. This first crown or bridge is replaced by a more durable, permanent crown at a later date. This process dramatically cuts down on not only treatment time but healing time as well. Contact us today for more information and for a consultation to see if you qualify for this procedure.
  • Laser Dentistry – In addition to LANAP, we offer laser-based procedures to diagnose cavities, whiten teeth and correct gumlines.
  • Non-surgical periodontics – Surgery is painful and hard on the patient, and so we try to avoid it wherever possible. We excel at various non-surgical treatments for conditions like periodontal disease and receding gums. Visit our non-surgical treatments page for more information on our non-surgical periodontic services.
