Man with tooth pain


Our board-certified periodontists pursued special training to diagnose and treat issues with your gums and supporting structures.

Dr. Mark Khaimov and Dr. Leonard Swerdlof offer a wide range of periodontal treatments for patients in the Nutley and Florham Park areas.

What Is Periodontics?

Periodontics is the field of dentistry that is dedicated to maintaining the health of your gums and jawbone. In order to become periodontists, dentists must undergo additional periodontal training through a recognized program, making them more specialized than the standard dental professional.

Dr. Khaimov and Dr. Swerdlof are board-certified periodontists qualified to handle your periodontal treatment.

Periodontal Disease Affects Close to Half the Adults in the Country

Choose Our Board-Certified Periodontists for Comprehensive Gum and Dental Care

Periodontics and implant placement often go hand-in-hand. If you're missing a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, our periodontists can help.

They usually start by improving your gum health with periodontal treatment, like gum graft surgery or laser therapy. Then, when your gums have healed, they can keep you calm with sedation and place any necessary implants.

Finally, if you need any finishing touches after your restoration has been placed, our dentists can create a more natural-looking smile using laser gum contouring.
