Patient Concerns

Patient Education

We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect on each step of a proposed treatment. As 65% of all learning is visual, we offer a three-dimensional animated presentation of all major periodontal and dental implant procedures. This computerized presentation (known as Consult Pro), has become a valuable aid in patient education.

Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.

We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.

Pre-medication

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Post Treatment Instructions

After treatment, home care and medication instructions will be thoroughly explained. For your convenience, you will also be given printed instructions. Of course, we are always available for questions after treatment.

Patient Comfort

We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures. Please click here for more information on this topic.

In addition, for your convenience, we offer:

  • Headphones with music in the operator
  • Television in the operatory and reception area

Special Equipment

We strive to stay on the leading edge of periodontal techniques and equipment. In order to do this, we take a great deal of continuing education. We also utilize advanced equipment in our office. This includes:

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays
Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation and have more flexibility in terms of rendition. They are also more convenient when planning treatment with your general dentist.

Panoramic Radiography
Panoramic Radiography (Panorex) is an advanced full-mouth x-ray that allows a full "panoramic" view of your teeth. This type of x-ray is often necessary in the diagnosis of dental implant placement and comprehensive periodontal therapy.

Dental Laser
Lasers can be used to get rid of periodontal bacteria in coordination with traditional techniques, such as Scaling and Root Planing or Pocket Depth Reduction (see the Periodontal Treatment section). In some cases a dental laser can be used to go deeper in the pockets around teeth in a less invasive manner. Lasers can also be used in several other procedures, such as gum contouring and crown lengthening. Dental lasers have been in use for nearly 20 years.

Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP techniques allow the periodontist to take advantage of the body's natural processes to accelerate soft tissue healing and increase bone regeneration following various periodontal procedures. Using a centrifuge, the periodontist first isolates platelets from a sample of the patient's own blood. The growth-factor rich platelets are then applied directly to surgical wounds or grafts to accelerate and enhance the healing process.

Magnifier Loops with Fiber Optic Lights You have probably seen a Magnifier Loop in a jewelry store when the jeweler was closely examining a diamond. Dental Magnifier Loops are made for periodontists to view your teeth and gums in minute detail during periodontal procedures. Dr. Reznikov uses periodontal loops in many procedures to ensure more precise treatment.

Piezosurgical Osteotome Pieziosurgery utilizes controlled three-dimensional ultrasonic vibration to precisely shape bone, but not soft tissues. This technique is ideal for delicate procedures, such as periodontal surgery, bone augmentation, sinus grafts and alveolar ridge augmentation. It allows for more precision, faster healing, and is less invasive than other techniques.

i-CAT In Office CAT Scans
A key to dental implant safety and success is advanced radiography. I-CAT digital CAT scanning allows us to take 3-Dimensional, high resolution CAT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors. A CAT scan ensures that every possible precaution has been made to reduce the risk of involvement of the nerves in the lower jaw, and the sinuses and nose in the upper jaw.

The i-CAT's scans are also used for bone reconstruction, bone grafting, TMJ evaluation, airway management and pathology detection.

Until recently, CAT scans were only done in hospitals or medical facilities. Our office is one of the very few in the United States with the latest in digital CT scanning, the i-CAT.

The i-CAT is ideal for patient comfort. It offers an "open-environment" design that reduces anxiety, and images can be taken in as little as 20 seconds, limiting discomfort and exposure to radiation. For more information about i-CAT imaging, please click here.

SimPlant Pro Version - Computer-Guided Implant Placement
Correct implant placement maximizes safety, longevity and the cosmetic end result. Precision implant placement begins with a CAT scan that must be extensively analyzed. Prior to the i-CAT, a cat scan was done at a medical facility and then sent to an analysis facility.

The SimPlant Pro Version is a computer system that automatically analyzes i-CAT information and provides exact placement perimeters for optimum results. This advanced system gives immediate guidance as to the exact size of implant needed and the ideal placement location. Case planning between Dr. Williams and your restorative dentist can then be done.

Additionally, the SimPlant Pro Version analysis can be immediately sent to our dental lab who will use it to manufacture a surgical guide. Implant placement becomes completely computer-guided eliminating any possible surgical error.

I had a great experience with a series of recent surgical procedures done by Dr. Gromov. I knew that I needed a gum graft - a surgery I had been postponing for some time and the more I researched it the more I dreaded it. Luckily, the experience at Dr. Gromov's office was as pleasant as it can get. Before the surgery he took time to answer all of my questions and walk me through the process, he...

I have only great things to say about my treatment with Dr. Reznikov. He is extremely knowledgeable and confident in what he does. The office is comfortable and equipment is technologically advanced compared to that of other offices I looked into before deciding on Glen Periodontics. I received a laser treatment and am happy I went that route - not many offices in the area even offer the...

I had a dental implant done elsewhere about 20 years ago and it failed. I had a marilyn bridge in the open space for the last 2 decades and it was beginning to fall apart. I got engaged in October and had the wedding date set for May. I needed to do something because it looked awful when I smiled and I wanted to have nice pictures for my wedding. I was worried about doing another implant and...

I was referred to Dr. Reznikov for a receding gum in which I had to have a tissue graft procedure. They showed video of the procedure and kept you well informed of what would take place. The staff was very professional and helpful. Its now been 2 weeks since the procedure and I have had no pain, or side effects. I have scheduled my next procedure and will be having an implant done at the end...

I was accommodated within 8 hours at Glen Periodontics by dr. Gromov. That was my first visit with the new doctor and I did not expect much. When I left less than an hour later after a complicated extraction I couldn't remember if I had actually just had my wisdom tooth extracted, or caught up with an old friend. Dr. Gromov is caring, kind, professional, warm, and gentle with great sense of...

I felt the whole staff was extremely knowledgable, professional and sincerely concerned about how I was feeling during the proceedures as well as the following day. Dr. Reznikov came highly recommended to me from a friend when I was...

Thanks Dr. Riznikov and your team for your remarkable treatments done on me. I am very happy with your services. The implant surgery was impeccable. I was very amazed by the whole process from the consultation to the following surgery. I lost teeth #18 & #19 (1st and 2nd molars on lower left) in July. Sadly I couldn’t function as biting and chewing on left side. The space of missing...

Dr. Reznikov and his staff have been the best from my experience visiting a dentist office, they are very very professional. The first time I visited Dr. Reznikov's office with a lingering gum problem,I never knew that there such a thing as deep cleaning he took the time to explain what the problem was and the cause of if . I can honestly say that I entered Dr. Reznikov feeling gozila and came...
