Advanced Treatments from a Qualified Expert

Periodontists are one of only two types of surgical specialists in the field of dentistry. Dr. Cushman has over 20 years of experience in this area. She also worked as a general dentist for four years. With this extensive background, she understands the significant effect oral health can have on your general health and well-being.

Dental implants are a major focus at our practice. These small metal posts mimic the function of tooth roots, providing unparalleled stability and durability for restorations. If you require preparatory treatment, Dr. Cushman can perform bone grafting, ridge augmentation, and sinus lifts on-site. We also offer comprehensive treatment for gum disease. It is important to treat this condition as soon as possible to minimize its effects. With early care, you can avoid significant discomfort and even tooth loss. Dr. Cushman can usually treat moderate periodontitis with a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planning. In the later phases, you may require a gum graft or osseous surgery. We offer a variety of additional procedures, such as crown lengthening, extractions, and cosmetic gum contouring.

Payment and Financing

We believe that each of our patients deserves affordable treatment. We accept many major insurance plans and all major credit cards. If you still need help covering your treatment, you may benefit from CareCredit™ or LendingClub. We proudly partner with these third-party financing companies to offer low, fixed, and no-interest repayment plans to approved patients.
