Periodontal disease is caused when the gum line recedes, causing the tooth to become exposed and at risk for decay and tooth loss. While there are numerous treatments that can help control periodontal disease, New York City dentist, Dr. Jason Kasarsky, uses advanced regeneration techniques to help reverse gum disease. Bone grafting or tissue grafting can be used to replace lost bone and tissue, and promote gum healing. Bone grafts are often used to help strengthen the jawline, while a gum tissue graft can treat receding gums and restore an even gum line. During this procedure, Dr. Kasarsky carefully folds back the gum tissue and uses special instruments to gently remove bacteria. In addition to bone grafting and tissue grafting, certain proteins can be used to help encourage and stimulate the body's natural ability to regenerate tissue and bone. Periodontal regenerative surgery is a special technique that can be discussed during a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kasarsky.

"Extraordinary expertise and state of the art tools, combined with warmth and kindness from all the staff, have well exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Kasarsky immediately built trust by showing me what he saw via a small camera, patiently explaining my options and addressing my concerns. His hygienist Marissa has set the bar for the most effective cleaning I have ever had - and the most gentle. The entire staff takes patient care to a whole new level. I can't imagine going elsewhere."- C.J. / Healthgrades / Dec 12, 2016
"I will start by saying I am very nervous when I go to the dentist. Having said that, I have been going to Dr. Kasarsky for 11 years. I think if it wasn't for Jason and his high level of care I would not go as much as I do.Yesterday I had my front tooth worked on. A slight cap. He did an amazing job. I really don't know what to say. I don't review. The precision and level of perfection is something that you rarely see these days. As a perfectionist myself it is something that I strive for everyday- but rarely see. Unbelievable. It matched so well my wife couldn't tell which side was complete and worked on.I trust him so much that since moving to NJ from the East Village, I still travel 1 hour to see him and his trusted team."- D.G. / Google / Aug 08, 2016
Why Tissue Grafting?
- To treat periodontal (gum) disease
- To contour and reshape uneven gum tissue
- To correct receding gums or gums that are too high
- To treat bone loss
- To stabilize dental implants due to gum loss
Dr. Kasarsky will use local anesthesia to numb the area being treated. In addition, other sedation options are available to help our patient with any discomfort and to ease anxiety. To start periodontal regeneration treatment, the gum tissue will be folded back so that the areas needing the graft can be visible. The area will be cleaned thoroughly, ensuring there is no bacteria. The graft will then be placed in the correct location and carefully sutured back together. Dr. Kasarsky will treat the area with medication and certain enhancement building proteins to help promote healing and regeneration. Most patients will return in about 7-10 days to have their sutures removed and so that Dr. Kasarsky can check to see how the gums are progressing.
After periodontal regenerative surgery, patients will be sore and will need to take it easy for a day. Patients will adhere to a soft foods, liquid diet while the surgical site heals. Pain medication and anti inflammatory medication will be prescribed as needed. Before leaving our office the day of surgery, patients will schedule their follow up visit with Dr. Kasarsky. Gentle brushing and flossing should continue daily, and regular dental exams and cleanings are important and should be scheduled routinely.
