If I Have Gum Disease, Will I Need Surgery?

Although surgery is sometimes the most effective option for late stage periodontitis, today’s medical advances provide us with many options for the treatment of a very large number of gum disease cases. Dr. Joseph Amalfitano will discuss all your treatment options with you to find the best option for you and your teeth.

How Much Pain Is Involved?

Dr. Amalfitano prides himself on being gentle yet effective. Your initial exam will cause very little discomfort. Different treatments, however, require varying levels of discomfort. We provide a range of anesthetic and sedative options to keep your pain and anxiety to a minimum.

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

Each individual case carries a unique set of treatments. Your fee can only be calculated on an individual basis following your preliminary examination. Dr. Amalfitano strives to make the simplest, most effective treatment plans in order to restore your oral health. During your examination, we will discuss an estimate of fees and payment options with you. If you have any questions, please contact us today.

Do You Accept My Insurance?

While we do not contract with any particular dental insurance we are happy to submit forms for most dental insurances electronically. Payment will be sent directly to you based on your contract and benefits available.

Will I Lose My Teeth?

Dr. Amalfitano prefers conservative treatments that save the most teeth. With today’s advances in technology, he finds that most issues can be successfully treated so teeth are saved. Early treatment of gum disease and promptly replacing missing teeth with dental implants helps ensure that all your remaining teeth will continue to serve you for the rest of your life.
