Located conveniently in Chevy Chase, MD, Periodontal & Implant Associates of Greater Washington (PAIGW) is only a block away from the Friendship Heights Metro Station, which is convenient for residents from Bethesda, MD. Here are a few reasons you should schedule your next checkup or consultation today.
Are you missing some of your teeth? Tooth loss is exceptionally common in adults and seniors, affecting self-esteem and the ability to talk and chew. Fortunately, dental implants can replace missing teeth, providing a strong, stable chewing surface that looks completely natural.
Although many patients assume that dental implants are a new technology, they were actually invented in the mid-1950’s, and Dr. Rose has been placing them since 1986. Dental implants are anchored into the jaw tissue by a small titanium post that fuses with your natural bone tissue. Realistic, completely personalized dental crowns are then cemented onto these posts, perfecting your smile.
Oftentimes, patients require prerequisite procedures before dental implants can be placed such as extractions, gum reconstruction, bone grafting and gum disease treatment. When you come in for a dental implant consultation, Dr. Rose will start by talking with you about your dental concerns, goals, budget, timeline, and insurance coverage. Next, Dr. Rose will talk with you about your dental implant treatment plan and what to expect moving forward.
Dr. Rose is a certified periodontist who has extensive experience in the field of implant dentistry. In addition to having years of practice placing, maintaining, and troubleshooting dental implants, Dr. Rose regularly attends continuing education courses to bring the latest technologies and techniques to his patients in Bethesda, MD. As a true expert in the periodontic field, Periodontal & Implant Associates have developed some of the most useful bone regeneration procedures used worldwide, and Dr. Rose helps budding periodontists to hone their skills by teaching courses at University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
As one of the best periodontal practices in the Washington, DC area, Dr. Rose focuses on treating a large variety of periodontal health problems. Instead of attacking gum disease with the biggest tool in their arsenal right out of the box, both doctors focus on taking a conservative approach to treatment, saving patients time and money.
Each treatment plan is customized especially for the patient, with first steps usually consisting of non-surgical treatment options. After carefully evaluating your x-rays, gum tissue, and periodontal pocket depth, the doctors will talk with you about which periodontal disease treatments you should start with. Throughout the process, your condition is carefully monitored to keep you safe, comfortable, and happy with your results.
