Drs. Richard Amato and Michael Kang of Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut welcome a new periodontist to their practice, Dr. John Thomas. An experienced periodontist from Bridgeport, CT, his patients can now receive care from Dr. Thomas at his new location in Monroe, CT. Dr. Thomas will be joining Drs. Amato and Kang at Advanced Periodontics in offering leading periodontal care, including treatment of gum disease through laser dentistry and minimally invasive gum recession treatment.
Dr. Thomas has been working as a periodontist for over 50 years and has been a lifelong resident of the Bridgeport, CT area. He obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Pennsylvania and completed his Periodontal Residency at Georgetown University. As an experienced periodontist, Dr. Thomas focuses on the areas of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum related conditions, like gum disease.
Now at Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut, Dr. Thomas will be adding his skills to the team’s already extensive care offered for periodontal concerns. One of the leading services offered is treatment for gum disease. This common condition affects the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, including the gums, teeth and jawbone. When diagnosed early, gum disease can be treated before extensive and permanent harm occurs. However, if left to progress untreated, gum disease can cause serious oral and systemic health concerns. Advanced gum disease can cause jawbone deterioration and tooth loss. Research has even linked it to health concerns like heart disease and diabetes.
Periodontists Drs. Amato, Kang and Thomas provide effective treatment for gum disease through LANAP® laser dentistry. LANAP is an advanced solution that does not require the use of scalpels or sutures. With gentle laser light, infected gum tissue can be removed and healthy tissue can be stimulated for regrowth. Since there is no cutting, most patients find the treatment to be comfortable and sedation is often not required. This also means that treatment is quicker than traditional treatment and areas of gum disease can often be treated in just one appointment.
Existing patients of Dr. Thomas from Bridgeport, CT are welcome to join him at his new Monroe, CT location.
