Dental Implants in Northeast

Dental implants are one of the most common and effective way to permanently replace missing or extracted teeth. Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts that are surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. They bond to the bone to become a permanent part of the jaw, and serve as the foundation for a permanent restoration, also known as an artificial tooth.

Because dental implants are anchored into the jaw, a patient must possess enough bone density for the implant to securely fuse to. Many patients are told that because they lack the bone density required to sustain an implant, they are not candidates for dental implants. However, this is simply not the case. A periodontist in Northeast can offer patients several treatment options that allow patients to restore their smiles with permanent dental implants. In most cases, a bone graft can be done by a periodontist in Northeast, to replace the missing bone and create a secure foundation to place the implant. For patients who suffer from more severe forms of bone loss, there are graftless procedures that utilize the patient’s existing bone density to effectively anchor the implant. If you suffer from bone loss and are missing teeth, a Northeast periodontist can still restore your smile with dental implants.

Once the implant is placed, the patient will receive a temporary restoration, also known as an artificial tooth that is color matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of the patient’s smile and delivered within 24 hours. ⁣⁣This restoration ensures the patient has a complete, gap-less smile during the healing process. Once the tissue around the implant heals and implant fuses to the bone, a process known as the osseointegration, which usually takes between 3-6 months, the patient returns to receive their permanent restoration⁣⁣. These permanent restorations look just like real teeth and rejuvenate the aesthetics and function of the teeth, and restore patients’ abilities to chew, speak and smile again with confidence and ease! ⁣⁣

If you are missing teeth, permanent dental implants in Northeast may be the solution for you. To learn more or set up a consultation with a periodontist in Northeast contact us today.

Gum Disease Treatment in Northeast

Periodontal disease is an inflammation of the gum tissue due to the buildup and spread of bacteria below the gumline. At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal Therapy, we are pleased to offer our patients both non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapies to effectively treat periodontal disease below the gum line and restore proper oral health and function. Not every patient requires an invasive surgical procedure, and we work with our patients to create the best treatment plan for them.

Your dual-board certified Northeast periodontists understand that each patient requires a customized treatment plan to best fit their needs, budget and preferences. It is imperative to consult with a periodontist in Northeast if you believe you have gum disease, in order to determine the best course of action. A thorough and accurate diagnosis is the first step to ensuring you receive the correct treatment that will yield effective, long-term results. Further, if left untreated, gum disease can spread below the gum line and to the supporting bone structure. Periodontitis is the most extreme form of gum disease and can cause teeth to become loose and fall out, and as well as affect the underlying bone, causing bone loss in the jaw. If a patient experiences tooth and bone loss as a result of periodontal disease, there are several treatment options for restoring bone density, and a healthy, functional and complete smile.

Dr. Aalam and his entire staff are professional and kind – and have been throughout the whole process with them. I was hesitant and scared to have gum grafting performed. However, Dr. Aalam’s Rejuvagum procedure was absolutely painless…..yes that’s right, painless. I’m so happy I decided to have this done especially with Dr. Aalam. I HIGHLY recommend them especially if you need gum grafting.

She patiently explained all steps and options. And I can’t stress enough what an incredibly warm person she is. Never have I felt so taken care of by a doctor.
Patient Experience


Easily the best dental experience I’ve had. Went in to remove all wisdom teeth and it was as fast and painless as can be expected. As always the couple weeks after wisdom tooth surgery sucks, but they helped ease everything. I still go frequently for hygiene appointments.
