Complete Capabilities and Current Technologies
Orthodontics -We use the Progressive Orthodontics custom appliance system that allows us to achieve optimal results in the minimal time possible. The system’s advanced software helps us create a completely customized diagnosis and treatment plan using individual appliances for each tooth. With this coordinated archwire-bracket system, we are able to fit your mouth perfectly for better comfort and faster results.
Cosmetic Dentistry – Ask us about the many choices available to improve your smile, including bonding, veneers, ceramic crowns and home whitening.
Implants – Our Sirona 3D scanner is a valuable tool in helping us diagnose whether there is enough healthy bone for a successful implant, and in preparing the site. Because it allows us to do the smallest scan necessary, the dose of radiation is lower than a full-head scan. Scans can be done here in our office, saving patients the time and hassle of making an appointment at a hospital or imaging center. Implants are usually done in one or two stages, depending on the individual case.
Pinhole – The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.
This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
