Dr. Robert Javer and the team at Newton Dental Associates was included in Boston Magazine’s Guide to Aging Well in the November issue.
Dr. Javer specializes in periodontistry, working to help patients who are suffering from infections in their gums and soft tissues around the teeth and jawbone. He also performs dental implants to replace damaged or lost teeth. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects up to 70 perfect of people over the age of 65 and has been linked to chronic diseases. If problems in your mouth arise that require a consultation with a periodontist, your general dentist will make a recommendation during a regular checkup and cleaning.
Dr. Javer has been with Newton Dental Associates for 27 years. After receiving his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, he studied and achieved his Post-Doctoral Degree in Periodontology at Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry. Dr. Javer is a member of several local and nationwide organizations including the American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society and the Northeast Society of Periodontology. Earlier this year, he was named one of Boston’s Top Dentists by Boston Magazine.
