What is a Periodontist and What Do Manalapan Periodontists Treat?

Thursday, September 28, 2017

The mouth might seem like a minor part of the body, but it is actually filled with complexity and hugely important for your overall health.  In order to better serve all of our our patient's needs, we are pleased to announce the addition of a wonderful Periodontist, Dr. Samantha Aaron to our team.


By adding Periodontist, Dr. Samantha Aaron to our Manalapan office, we feel that we had made our premier dental group even stronger, to the benefit of patients throughout New Jersey.  A native of the Garden State, Dr. Aaron is proud to bring her unique skills and extensive training to Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey. 

Periodontal (Gum) Care requires collaboration between the periodontist, the patients, and the restorative dentist.  While there are a variety of procedures available to prevent and treat gum disease in its various stages, excellent periodontal health depends on the patient's commitment to maintaining healthy habits and good home care oral hygiene between dental office visits. 

Dr. Aaron creates lasting partnerships with her patients by providing them with gentle care and the education they need to have healthy mouths for a lifetime.  Her compassion and friendly chair side manner help to put even the most anxious patients at ease.

As a periodontal plastic surgeon, Dr. Aaron performs pocket reduction therapy to maintain the cosmetic appearance of gums and prevent gum disease.  She will work closely with Dr. James Courey, Dr. Joseph Zagami, Dr. Nicholas Diaz, and the SDNJ team to provide:

  • Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease

  • Screening for oral cancer and other abnormal tissues in the mouth
  • Implant dentistry
  • Bone Grafting
  • Sinus augmentation
  • Periodontal surgery

  • Preparation of the mouth for the placement of tooth restorations

Furthermore, our patients will find in Dr. Aaron, a skilled periodontist, who shares SDNJ's dedication to patient service, care, comfort, and overall satisfaction.  We are excited that she had joined our team and she is dedicated to further our mission of caring for our patients with unparalleled quality and efficacy.  To schedule your initial appointment at our premier surgical, implant, prosthodontic, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry practice, contact us today.
