Welcome

Patient Education

We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect on each step of a proposed treatment. As 65% of all learning is visual, we offer a three-dimensional animated presentation of all major periodontal and dental implant procedures. This computerized presentation (known as Concise Vision), has become a valuable aid in patient education.

Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed.

Patient Safety

We take patient safety very seriously and adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.

We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.

Pre-medication

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might need pre-medication.

Post Treatment Instructions

After treatment, home care and medication instructions will be thoroughly explained. For your convenience, you will also be given printed instructions. Of course, we are always available for questions after treatment.

Patient Comfort

We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures. Please click here for more information on this topic.

Special Equipment

We strive to stay on the leading edge of periodontal techniques and equipment. In order to do this, we take a great deal of continuing education. We also utilize advanced equipment in our office. This includes:

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays
Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation and have more flexibility in terms of rendition. They are also more convenient when planning treatment with your general dentist.

Advanced Dental Implant Placement
Recent advances in dental implant technology and bone regeneration allow trained periodontists to place dental implants anchoring dentures and partials immediately. Single tooth implants can also be restored immediately in a number of cases.

Piezosurgical Osteotome
Pieziosurgery utilizes controlled three-dimensional ultrasonic vibration to precisely shape bone, but not soft tissues.   This technique is ideal for delicate procedures, such as periodontal surgery, bone augmentation, sinus grafts and alveolar ridge augmentation.   It allows for more precision, faster healing, and less invasion.
