Dental Implants Including Teeth in a Day
If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant is the ideal replacement as it looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth. We can also use the revolutionary technique, Teeth-in-a-Day, to replace an entire upper or lower arch of teeth by using multiple implants. Our doctors use their excellent surgical skills and computer-guided implant placement technology, to carefully place implants and work very closely with a patient’s general dentist to coordinate and deliver the very best care.
Treating Gum Disease with Gum Grafting & Pinhole Surgical Technique
Gum recession affects more than half of Americans aged 30 or older and can cause patients to lose their teeth. Fortunately, our expert periodontists offer the most advanced procedures available that can save your natural teeth and gums. The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ is a non-invasive procedure that loosens gum tissue and moves it over the teeth, while gum grafting adds healthy tissue around the tooth.
Traditional and Modern Gum Disease Treatments
In addition to traditional gum disease treatments, we also provide cutting-edge laser techniques: LANAP and LAPIP. These minimally invasive procedures help tissue regrow by removing the infection from your body to create an environment for the bone or gums to regenerate. Pairing their clinical expertise with these techniques, our doctors look forward to successfully restoring your oral health.
