As a Board-Certified Periodontist with over 30 years of experience, Dr. Michaelides has helped countless patients receive successful periodontal treatment for their specific needs. If you're concerned about periodontal disease (gum and dental implant diseases), an appointment with Dr. Michaelides is an excellent first step toward improving your oral health.
Less Painful Minimally-Invasive Periodontal Treatment
Dr Michaelides uses minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of periodontal and dental implant diseases that are less painful and more cosmetically pleasing than conventional treatment.
As an alternative to conventional gum grafts, Dr. Michaelides uses Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) grafts which are similar to Collagen grafts used by plastic surgeons. ADM grafts do not require the use of your own donor tissue, making them less invasive and less painful. The results are more cosmetically pleasing as well.
Dr Michaelides uses Oral Conscious Sedation to keep patients relaxed and comfortable during their procedures.
His philosophy is to save diseased teeth and implants and to avoid extractions if at all possible.
Dr. Michaelides accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans. Dr. Michaelides is In-Network Provider for most insurance plans including Delta , Met Life , Cigna , Blue Cross, Guardian, Safeguard and with many others. He offers extended payment plans often without interest with the dental financing company Care Credit.
