what is periodontal regenerative surgery?
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.
"Dr. Kasarsky and his team are the best in the business. I used to put off going to the dentist for two years at a time because I've always hated the experience until I went for a cleaning at Dr.Kasarsky's office. Now I'm going 4 times a year for a cleaning. Last Sunday, I unfortunately chipped my tooth late at night, and in a panic, I reached out to Dr. Kasarsky around 11 pm. Within minutes, he responded to me and set up an appointment for the following day. 24 hours after chipping my tooth, I was all back to normal. Not only was it fixed, but you couldn't even tell it had work done it on. The man is not only a great dentist; he is only an artist. If you're like me and have always hated the dentist, I recommend switching to Dr. Karsarky. And trust me, a recommendation for me is essentially a guarantee."- C.C. / Google / Feb 25, 2022
"Dr. Kasarsky is personable, skilled, knowledgable and patient. The work is beautiful. It is as close to pain free dentistry as possible. Marissa, the hygienist, is a gem. The best cleaning ever. I enjoy them. The assistants and the front desk could not be nicer. They follow up (as does Dr. Kasarsky), take the time to know you and are super accommodating about scheduling changes. Office is attractive and super clean. Can't say enough good things."- G.I. / Google / Mar 30, 2022

"I had neglected my teeth for years and was in need of care. At the time I was working out of a midtown Manhattan office. One day I walked by the dental practice of Dr. Kasarsky (when he had a street level office). Something told me to give it a try so I went in and made an appointment and as they say, the rest is history. Because of my past neglect I required extensive teeth and gum work to get back to a healthy state. Mission accomplished. Throughout the years, the professionalism and skill of Dr. Kasarsky and his staff have been top notch. I no longer work in Manhattan but I still make the trek in whenever I need work or a cleaning. (Thank you Marissa.) Recently, I thought I had a painful dental issue but it was caused by a stretched muscle attached to the jaw. Quickly diagnosed and resolved by Dr. Kasarsky. I would not consider going anywhere else."- E. / Google / Dec 12, 2021
"Dr. Kasarsky and his team make me smile! My smile is my signature, and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else!"- DH / Office Visit / Feb 13, 2018
Why PERIODONTAL REGENERATIVE surgery uses 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
How does PERIODONTAL REGENERATIVE surgery work?
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.
what is recovery like for periodontal regenerative surgery?
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.
