Missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, can be a stressful experience. That is why we invest in multiple systems to ensure your treatment is comfortable, fast and accurate. Here are some highlights of our technology.
  • Reduces radiation exposure by 75% or more
  • Allows doctor to adjust image contrast and zoom in and out for better viewing and more accurate diagnosis
  • Clarity and image detail often surpass traditional film x-rays
  • Instant electronic images—no waiting for film to develop
  • Environmentally friendly because chemical developers are not needed
  • Overall easier, cleaner, and faster than conventional x-rays
  • Images can be shared electronically with other doctors to facilitate interdisciplinary care
We were one of the first practices in our area to use CBCT. The main advantage of this advanced x-ray technology is that is creates a three-dimensional image which is critical for planning surgical cases. The technology greatly benefits the doctor in diagnosis and treatment planning and it helps patients understand their needs and treatment options. Being able to see features in three dimensions is useful in a variety of clinical situations, including showing patients bony defects associated with periodontal disease and the proper placement of dental implants.
This technology is a simple, non-invasive way to check your bite using computer technology. An unbalanced bite can lead to numerous problems including pain, grinding of teeth, tooth wear, damaged teeth or restorations, loose teeth, and receding gums. By using this new technology, the doctors evaluate your bite and provide recommendations for treatment.
Our office invented this unique patient education system that shows patients the steps in dental implant treatment using animations. Even patients who are apprehensive about dental procedures find the cartoon-like images on the computer to be non-threatening and easy to understand during consultations.
REP provides the benefits of conventional periodontal surgery, but REP is minimally invasive surgery. With REP, the periodontist uses a very small fiber optic camera that is placed into the periodontal pocket. Using this camera, the periodontist is able to see below the gum line and clean the tooth roots. The periodontist is also able to make an early diagnosis of root fractures, tooth decay, and the breakdown and erosion of tooth roots.

The abbreviation ISQ stands for “Implant Stability Quotient.” The Osstell ISQ is a handheld, non-invasive, computerized device that provides a numerical value to determine dental implant stability and integration into the bone. This value is very important to the periodontist in making clinical decisions that affect the long-term anticipated success of dental implant treatment.

Note We have 2 laser systems. Nd:YAG, which is specifically designed for treatment of periodontitis and implant bone loss (peri-implantitis) and a diode laser, designed for biopsies and gum tissue contouring (note hyperlink Nd:YAG to LANAP).
We make extensive use of imaging technology for diagnosis, evaluation, monitoring and enhancement of results, particularly when esthetics are important. This also allows us to instantly communicate specific and accurate information to other professionals and laboratories.

Accelerated Orthodontics Piezocision®

We are pleased to implement a new treatment method for adults who want to improve their smiles with orthodontics. Typically this took 1-2 years whether using traditional braces (wires and brackets on teeth) or Invisalign®(clear plastic trays to move teeth).

We are the leader in this technique in the region. The method accelerates tooth movement up to 50%. Recent studies from Belgium and other sites around the world validated and supported the original evidence and technique from Boston University, indicating this is a future increasing trend.

Piezocision® is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed by one of our periodontists resulting in activation and temporary softening of the jawbone. This allows teeth to move more rapidly. The incisions are small cuts in the gum between the teeth that generally don’t need suturing (stitches). After the cuts are made, the periodontist uses specialized ultrasonic instruments to activate the underlying bone. Typically people having the procedure take over-the-counter pain medication for a couple of days afterward, do not have swelling and return to normal lives immediately. A dentist or orthodontist manages the tooth movement, while we manage the gum and jawbone reactions.

The increased plasticity effect of bone lasts about 3 months, while the teeth are quickly moved. If more movement is necessary, the procedure can be repeated. Afterward, bone goes back to normal and teeth are straight and solid. This method reduces possible damage to teeth during movement, does not affect periodontal support and can be combined with other procedures to correct gum recession and even increase bone support.

We are very enthusiastic about this technique and our first patients include several office team members and Dr.Ganeles. If you have always wanted to improve the alignment of your teeth but didn’t want to invest years doing it, this might be the answer. Ask us if you are interested

We have several different computer based planning tools that are often used to virtually analyze and plan implant placement and to simulate the outcome. This allows safer, more precise and successful implant placement. We often use this software to produce computer generated guides to insure accurate implant placement.

Yomi is a new alternative to traditional surgical techniques. Yomi provides dental surgeons with robotic guidance during surgery. The surgeon is in control at all times. Yomi combines your surgeon’s skill with the benefits of robotic surgery.

  • Digital radiographs
  • Millenium NdYAG laser
  • Operating microscope
  • Periodontal endoscope
  • Yomi robotic implant surgery
  • Computer guided surgery
  • Digital periodontal examination

Because we are always looking to provide our patient with the very best, we are so excited to announce a minimally invasive new way we provide bone grafting procedures with the cutting-edge S.M.A.R.T. ™ technique.

The S.M.A.R.T.™ technique provides superior bone regeneration with less pain, less swelling and cuts down on the number of potential complications than traditional techniques. S.M.A.R.T™ requires only a small incision, with no flap elevation, no tenting screws and no membranes and can be performed predictably and with minimal risk of complications even in more complex situations.
