Periodontist Dr. Patricia R Marrone is an experienced Dental Specialist who prior to graduating her intense 3-year Post-Doctoral Graduate Program in Periodontics from the Columbia University School of Dental Medicine; was a private practitioner for 10 years in a comprehensive professional Dental practice in Westchester County, New York. Born in the Bronx, she went to college at Fordham University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. She then attended the Fairleigh S. Dickinson University School of Dentistry where in 1986 she received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Dr Marrone performs a variety of periodontal procedures such as crown lenthening, gum grafts and cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The dental implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the dental implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
Periodontal diseases are ongoing infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically-susceptible individuals.
As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. The Englewood Cliffs NJ office of oral surgeon Dr Kallis and periodontist Dr Marrone use new technology developed for the treatment of periodontal disease.
