Emergencies Welcome

Welcome to the office of Kenneth Legunn, DMD  a Pleasantville, NY periodontist. Our office takes a patient-oriented and conservative approach to periodontal care; Dr. Legunn treats every patient as if they’re a member of his family. We’re proud to have been in Pleasantville for over 33 years.

Periodontal Treatment at our Pleasantville Office

We help patients fight the effects of gum disease and treat tooth loss with both non-surgical and surgical periodontal care, including:

  • Deep cleanings (root scaling and planing)
  • Periodontal maintenance
    • Periodontal surgery 
    • Regenerative treatments 
  • Tooth extraction 
  • Dental implant placement

When it comes to your treatment plan, our primary concern is to help you keep your natural teeth -- that’s Dr. Legunn’s job as a periodontist. If you are exhibiting signs of gum disease, Dr. Legunn helps minimize symptoms by non-surgically reducing pockets, or by surgically reducing pockets to create healthy gums. We also provide patient education on the best ways to care for your gums at home.

In the event that you are experiencing advanced gum disease and do require extraction, Dr. Legunn can extract damaged teeth and replace them with dental implants at his office.

Gum Disease Prevention and Periodontal Repair

Our main focus is treating periodontal disease and replacing teeth with implants, when necessary. Dr. Legunn has placed thousands of implants for patients over his career. 

When you visit our periodontal office for care, Dr. Legunn performs a comprehensive exam and designs the right treatment solution based on your needs. Most treatment can be completed non-surgically, which is part of our conservative focus. We recommend only what you need and select the least invasive treatment possible.
