As a periodontist in Teaneck, NJ, Dr. Susan Goldfarb works to provide the very best care to our patients. Advanced technologies, from electric handpieces that work almost silently to lasers that reduce the need for cutting, have made periodontal care more effective and comfortable than it ever has been. Below are some of the technologies Dr. Goldfarb uses in our practice.
A healthy smile will benefit you for your entire life. Make sure it stays that way by contacting us with any questions you may have.
The LANAP® laser protocol allows Dr. Goldfarb to eliminate bacteria that cause gum disease, treat the affected areas, and facilitate the reattachment between the gums and the teeth. LANAP® treatment is a minimally invasive procedure using a laser rather than a scalpel. There is no cutting, only minimal discomfort, and a very quick recovery time.
Periodontal disease causes bone loss around teeth, which can increase the chances for tooth loss. Once a tooth has been lost, the supporting jaw bone will disappear over time.
Guided tissue bone regeneration helps the body to regenerate lost bone. By repairing the damage done by periodontal disease, this procedure will increase the chances of keeping your natural teeth and will decrease the odds of serious health problems associated with periodontal disease.
With a number of dental procedures, the numbing process can be the most uncomfortable part. Oraqix® is a numbing agent that is administered without needles. It is a gel that is applied to the gum line and almost immediately numbs the soft tissue for about twenty minutes. Oraqix® allows Dr. Goldfarb to numb just the necessary area and for only the necessary time, allowing you to get back to your day with ease.
Oral DNA® testing allow Dr. Goldfarb to detect harmful bacteria before their destructive effects can be seen. A simple rinse gives our lab enough material to identify the kinds of bacteria in your mouth. This information allows Dr. Goldfarb to construct a more effective treatment plan for your needs.
