Ask A Doctor
My dentist just informed me that despite my strong efforts to maintain my teeth and gums, it just isn't sufficient to prevent the frequent gum inflammations I experience. He recommends I see a periodontist to explore surgery options. I already had this surgery 2 years ago after I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. it caused severe bone loss and gum problems. surgery was quickly performed and I also lost a tooth in the process. once my blood sugar was controlled, I have only had minor gum issues, especially after cleanings. It's been a couple of weeks now I have been experiencing pain with my gums, saw 2 dentists. they say there is no infection but one says my gum is the issue, the other says my bite is an issue-it's putting pressure on the back tooth giving me pain. who do I listen to ? or, what do I do ?

If you are looking for an exceptional periodontist, Dr. Linden is that person. I have had gum surgery before, with another periodontist, but it was not a good experience - cutting of the gums and a long recovery period. When my gums started to become unhealthy last summer, I decided to do some research on the web to find another periodontist and found Dr. Linden and the LANAP procedure. I was impressed with other patients’ reviews but still a bit nervous to try another periodontist. Every review about Dr. Linden is absolutely the truth. I am not be best patient, but Dr. Linden and his assistant Patti put me at ease from the first moment that I walked into their office. Dr. Linden makes gum surgery painless and the recovery period is amazingly short. It was like I had never had surgery. Both Dr. Linden and Patti show concern and the follow-up with their patients is beyond excellent. I have Dr. Linden to thank for healthier gums. Do not hesitate to choose Dr. Linden. I highly recommend him for his work and for his professionalism.

Dr. Linden and his staff are proud to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined the following payment policies.

Unless otherwise specified, the entire fee is due at the time of the procedure. We will inform you of your responsibilities prior to performing any procedures, and help you make an informed decision.

For your convenience we accept cash, checks, money orders and credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express). If required, we also offer American Dental Association-endorsed payment programs such as Springstone and Care Credit, which allow for affordable payments (see below).

Although we are an out-of-network specialty practice, most insurance plans will cover your periodontal work with out-of-network benefits if your policy covers periodontal care. But of course, we cannot guarantee that your plan will cover our fees. We do not accept HMOs and PPOs. However, you might still be entitled to benefits. Please check with your provider.

As a courtesy, our office will fill out all necessary forms and submit to your insurance company for reimbursement directly to you, but in general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by service providers (dental offices), so you may wish to submit the claim yourself.

If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. They can be reached by phone at  212.595.5559  (Manhattan office) or  201.307.0339  (New Jersey office) or by fax at 201.307.0044 or email.

Longer period 24, 36, & 48 month financing is also available. Applying for CareCredit is quick and simple. Patients can apply online at, or by calling CareCredit directly at  866.893.7864 .
