The basis of sound dental care is routine dental examinations and cleanings. We customize dental cleanings (Hand Scaling, root planing, ultrasonic scaling, polishing and laser-assisted periodontal therapy) on the basis of your periodontal health. We screen every patient for periodontal disease at every comprehensive and periodic exam. Periodontal disease is characterized by elevated gum pocket depths around the teeth and bleeding gums.

We use desensitizers, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), numbing gels and The Wand local anesthesia to help sensitive and anxious patients experience a relaxed visit. Laser-assisted periodontal therapy (L.A.P.T.) with a diode laser is used in treating periodontal disease and oral tissue inflammation to include apthous ulcers and herpetic "cold sore" lesions. The Wand is the state-of-the-art computerized anesthetic delivery system that administers anesthesia (numbing) in the most comfortable way in small, controlled increments.

Children and adults at high risk of dental decay may benefit from using additional fluoride products, including dietary supplements (for children who do not have adequate levels of fluoride in their drinking water), mouth rinses, and professionally applied gels and varnishes.

 

We use these products for this type of treatment:
