Excellence in Dentistry
Dental implants have revolutionized the practice of dentistry in that we can now place a tooth where there was no tooth. This new tooth does not decay or feel pain. Implants help preserve bone and facial features unlike dentures which cause a deterioration of the supporting bone. An implant is a supporting tooth like structure that a crown, bridge or denture can be built upon.
An implant is typically placed in our office and allowed to heal for 3-4 months. During the healing process a temporary crown may be placed, a denture may be processed to fit loosely around the implants, or a small healing cap may be placed over the implant. The determination would be made in consideration of what would be best for the patient and the implant’s ability to heal.
Our practice has seen an increased number of patients looking for a more comfortable, less stressful alternative to the traditional needle and drill. In a continuing effort to provide you with the best oral health care and advanced treatment options, our office is now performing many traditional dental procedures with the best dental laser system available – the revolutionary Waterlase iPlus™.
Unlike needle and drill dentistry, in most cases the Waterlase iPlus™ can perform many traditional dental procedures with no shots, no drill, and no pain. Waterlase uses a unique combination of laser energy and water to provide gentler, more precise treatment that conserves healthy tooth, and minimizes pain and discomfort. In addition, procedures that once took several appointments to complete, such as multiple fillings, can now be finished in just one visit.
If you’ve been avoiding the dentist for fear of the needle and drill, or just want a dental solution that is more comfortable and faster, stop delaying your dental treatment and schedule an appointment today.
