Stoneham Dental Care is proud to have Dr. Alan Tang as part of our team of doctors. Dr. Tang is an endodontist which is a root canal specialist. Dr. Tang is able to perform all aspects of root canal therapy from diagnosis to complex root canals and retreatments. A common misconception is that a root canal is an uncomfortable procedure. With today’s powerful local anesthetics, it is rare for the patient to feel anything while the treatment is being performed. We can offer our patients sedation dentistry to make necessary treatments not only tolerable but even more comfortable and relaxing.

Periodontics (Gum Treatment)
Stoneham Dental Care is proud to have Dr. Marc Pearlstein as a member of our office team. Dr. Pearlstein is a trained periodontist, who specializes in the placement of implants, the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of all aspects of periodontium. This specialty treats supporting structures of teeth, diseases and conditions that affect them.
The gum and bone tissue are the foundation for a healthy smile. We offer the latest treatments to stop the damage caused by periodontal disease -- a leading cause of adult tooth loss. These include scaling and root planing, insertion of new time-released pharmaceuticals and tissue regenerative procedures. Dr. Pearlstein practices at Stoneham Dental Care, so you will receive all your dental needs under one roof.
Most people have some form of periodontal disease and are unaware of it because it is painless in early stages. If undetected or left untreated the support for the teeth in the jaw bone is destroyed. At later stages this causes the teeth to become loose or painful. In addition, gum disease can cause bad breath and change the appearance of your smile. Early diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease is crucial.
Another aspect of dentistry that a periodontist plays a key role in is dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium post which is placed into the jawbone by a periodontist where a tooth is missing. The bone fuses to the implant making a secure and comfortable support. The restorative dentist then uses the implants as supports for new crowns or to make a denture fit more securely. The implant placement is easy for the patient and many patients afterward describe it as a similar experience to having a filling placed.
"It was so convenient and cost effective to have my implant placed and restored in one place!"
