Dr. Wang is a board certified periodontist with significant skills in both simple and complex gum surgery procedures, helping patients in Manhattan’s Midtown East neighborhood and throughout New York City maintain healthy gums and avoid tooth loss.
Osseous surgery uses bone grafts to add bone tissue to areas where bone loss has occurred due to advanced gum disease. When gum disease is allowed to advance untreated, the bacteria can eventually eat away at the bone that comprises the tooth socket. When bone is lost, the tooth becomes weak and can fall out. By augmenting these areas with bone grafts, either taken from your own body or by using allografts from a tissue bank, osseous surgery can repair the damage and help restore oral structures damaged by disease.
How can I tell if I need gum surgery?
Not everyone who has gum disease requires gum surgery; however, people with advanced periodontal disease may require surgery to prevent further decay and eventual tooth loss. The only way to know if gum surgery could benefit you and help you keep your teeth as healthy as possible is to schedule an evaluation. Being evaluated is especially important if you have any signs of gum disease, including bleeding gums, swollen or tender gums, sore teeth, or extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

I've been going to 209 dental for years. I now live in Long Island and still make the trip out for my appointments. Dr's Ahn and Kafko are very caring individuals. Best dental experience ever!
This is a wonderful dental office with very professional and friendly staff and up to date technology. They took me at a very short notice when I needed emergency dental work, they were so nice and accommodating.
The office itself is bright and modern, all staff are welcoming! All doctors are absolutely fantastic! The best part is that they have all Dental specialists at that office, so they’ll be able to help you with any dental issue without you leaving the office.
I highly recommend 209 NYC Dental!
This is the first dental practice I look forward to going to. The front desk staff, hygienists and dentists are some of the friendliest and best in Manhattan. I always look forward to my teeth cleanings and if I need work done, I know I'm in great care.
Also, Dr. Ahh did my Invisalign and I've never been more proud to smile!
