Periodontal treatment may be sought in several ways. Your general dentist or a hygienist may recommend a consultation with a periodontist if they find signs of periodontal disease through the course of a checkup or other dental care appointment. You may also decide to see a periodontist on your own as a referral is not necessary to be seen at our office. In fact, if you experience any of these symptoms, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our office without delay:
Drs. Pollack, Odrich and Sarmiento provide a variety of surgical services for the treatment of periodontal issues. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are very conservative in our treatment recommendations and limit surgery to the areas where it is absolutely necessary. Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. Even in severe cases, non-surgical periodontal therapy often precedes to surgical therapy. This is done to improve the overall tissue quality prior to surgery and also to help limit the areas requiring surgery.
The following instructions may be helpful when preparing for your upcoming surgery. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any last minute questions. We can be reached at 212.838.0940 during regular business hours. You should receive your pre/post-operative prescriptions with this instruction sheet. For your convenience, please have them filled prior to your scheduled surgery, unless they have been previously phoned into the pharmacy of your choice. Please bring your filled prescriptions with you to your appointment. It is not usually necessary to stop taking aspirin and non-steroidals (such as Motrin and Advil) prior to your surgery.
