Periodontics treats bad breath and bleeding gums. Gum disease treatment intends to eliminate the bacterial infection that also causes a bad taste in the mouth. This is frequently also associated with gingivitis (swollen gums). Our periodontist dentist provides conservative gum treatment and utilizes periodontal gum surgery only as a last resort. Services include bone grafting, gum surgery and perio disease/gum disease treatment. Our dental hygienists can educate you on the many choices you have regarding the nature of your specific type of gum disease, various preventative measures to employ at home and the benefits & risks of each type of proposed periodontal therapy.
Our team includes 16 cosmetic dentists and specialists (including a Periodontist) all in one high-end midtown Manhattan location. As a result, we are able to offer quick and comfortable appointments. We provide an intelligent and honest diagnosis based upon 33+ years of experience.
“The hygienist at your dental office is wonderful! She never leaves my mouth sore and bleeding like some places I’ve been. She is exceptionally gentle during cleanings, yet always leaves my teeth and gums incredibly clean. Thank you.”
“The treatment is comprehensive at The Center for Special Dentistry in New York, and Dr. Dorfman always goes the extra mile to provide care customized to my specific needs. Plus the staff is always courteous and the wait times are never too long.”
“I just went to this guys practice last week. I’m definitely not one to rave about the dentist, but this guy was actually a 5 star service. First off, you know how you usually wait in the waiting room with 20 other people for 2 hours past your appointment time, reading magazines from 8 years ago? Didn’t happen. I was only out there long enough to fill out all of the newbie paperwork, then immediately taken back into the office. Second, you know how the dentist comes in, starts poking around in your mouth first off, spend 5 minutes, mumbles and leaves? This guy actually spent an hour with me! An hour people! Just talking, getting to know me, and listening to what I wanted done. Never pushed me to get anything extra, and while he did point out some cavities I had, he didn’t immediately grab a drill, or start recommending 500 new treatments I HAD to have. One caveat though. 5 star service, 5 star price, ouch. Worth it, but know that going in. I’ll be going back.”
“Patience of a Saint – I used to be a jewelry designer. So when I went in for veneers I was EXTREMELY picky as to how they would look. They had to have the perfect shape, texture, color, and relation to the overall look. I made Dr. Dorfman send back the wax models 5 times before they were perfect and the real veneers could be made. He never yelled at me, was always patient and on my side, and my teeth look perfect, more than perfect, they look exactly like I want them to.”
