Why Do You Need A Periodontist?
(Terms that are underlined can be clicked on for further information)

More than half of Americans over the age of 30 have gum disease known as periodontitis. Symptoms include loose teeth, inflamed, receding or bleeding gums, and/or chronically bad breath. Recent studies have found that if left untreated, the disease can lead to tooth loss, and other conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimers disease, cancers, and low birth weight in a newborn. Periodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Periodontists are the only healthcare providers who are specialty trained to treat the above mentioned conditions.

The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) is the 8,400 member periodontal organization that board certifies periodontists. It also promotes research in the field, delivering continuing education to practitioners and raising public awareness of periodontal disease and its overall health implications.

Bryan Siegelman, D.D.S. is a Diplomate with the AAP –  which means he is board certified in the specialty. He is currently the only board certified periodontist in South Central PA. His practice offers comprehensive periodontal care including: treatment of gum disease (periodontitis), the placement of dental implants, tissue grafting to treat gum recession, and cosmetic periodontal surgery.

The office is located in the Brockie Medical Center, 924-G Colonial Avenue, York, PA.
