The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. Our commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs for healthy teeth and gums so you not only look your best but also have optimum overall health.

painless-injection

Painless Injections? Is This Possible?

In a word, yes! Even if you aren’t nervous about going to the dentist – who wants to feel even a little pain? Nobody! We are proud to be one of the first dental practices to employ the very latest in dental technology that helps to eliminate the fear of needles. It’s called Vibraject™. This device sends gentle vibrations to the area of the injection. The vibrations are picked up by the nerve endings before the sensation of the needle. This essentially eliminates any pain messages and allows us to give you a comfortable, pain-free injection. Our patients routinely tell us they “didn’t feel a thing!”

The Isolite™ Dental Isolation System

This multi-function unit’s most important feature is suction that removes droplets and aerosols from the air during treatment. Additionally, its flexible mouthpiece provides an increased level of dental isolation and includes a light for improved illumination of the inside of your mouth. For comfort, there is a built-in bite block to assist you in keeping your mouth open. Isolite was designed to make your treatment quicker and easier, not only eliminating multiple hand instruments previously used by dentists and dental assistants but also shortening your time in the chair and in our office.

laser-treatment

Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

Our office is licensed to practice the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure™, a minimally invasive method of treating gum disease. LANAP is the only laser-assisted procedure certified by the FDA for treatment of periodontitis or gum disease. With LANAP, gum disease can be treated successfully without scalpels or sutures, so healing and recovery is generally faster and less painful than traditional gum surgery. If you’ve been told you need gum surgery, but have been putting it off, let us show you how easy your treatment really can be.

More Comfort with Laser Dentistry

Our practice now features two great dental lasers for safe and effective treatment that is virtually painless and easier than ever before! The Picasso™ laser is FDA approved for soft tissue treatment such as cosmetically treating uneven gummy smile lines, re-contouring inflamed tissue around crowns for better long-term results, and treating painful canker sores and mouth ulcers with instant relief. All with virtually no post-op discomfort!

The Waterlase™ laser also allows you to have your fillings placed painlessly without drills or needles! Energy from the laser is absorbed by water instead of by the teeth, as the energized water removes the tooth decay – usually with no pain and no need for needles.

air-abrasion

Air Abrasion – Goodbye Drills and Needles!

One of the most spectacular advances in recent dentistry is called air abrasion. Instead of a conventional drill, this device aims a stream of tiny particles and air at the area of decay and gently mists it away! Many patients require little or no anesthesia at all. The sound and vibrations of the drill are gone – and so is most of the pain! For many procedures, it’s good-bye needles, good-bye drill!

These restorations are so lifelike we can meet the demands of the most discerning eye. Additionally, our ceramists are very talented and can do crown tattoos – a great way to make a fashion statement!

Metal-Free Fillings

For years, the silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling material used in dental practices, but their shortcomings include a poor bond with tooth enamel and an ugly look. We have partnered with 3M™ and use Filtek™ Supreme to make the most lifelike fillings possible. The chemists at 3M have perfected and advanced the art of bonding with the Scotchbond™ products of bonding.

Saving Hopeless Teeth

Teeth with roots that have been damaged or infected can often be saved with advanced root canal therapy, a procedure that removes the pulp chamber of a tooth and fills it with a filling material.

We use EndoSequence™ by Brasseler! This material has revolutionized the world of root canals and has greatly increased the success rate. The old way of doing root canals is a thing of the past with MaxWire™ technology that makes root canals more efficient and easier on you.

The Risks and Realities of Oral Cancer

These tools use a specially designed light that makes any suspicious tissue immediately and easily visible during your exam. This screening could literally save your life!

Protect Your Teeth During Sports

Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.

In-House Tooth Extractions

If a tooth is extensively damaged or infected, or if third molars are impacted, extraction is the solution to the problem. We do most extractions in our office, so you will not be inconvenienced with a referral to another office. Our compassionate manner will make you feel comfortable in our care for this treatment.

We use bone-grafting materials from Miami Tissue Bank, the exclusive partner of BioMet 3i, a leader in the implant field of dentistry. This helps preserve the bone that is lost due to extractions.

Relax Through Your Care

While we take great pride in being able to deliver painless injections, some patients are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle. If this sounds like you, we have an offering that may help. One hour before your visit you take a pill that we dispense to you. You reach a level of sedation that allows you to respond to questions but relax through your entire visit. This is also ideal for those who have a busy schedule and want to get all their treatment done in one visit. With some cases, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a lighter form of sedation. We want you to feel comfortably relaxed throughout treatment.

The Cleanest Your Teeth Can Be

We use a Piezo Scaler™ to aid in removing deposits of plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially under the gumline and even in deep pockets, in the case of gum disease treatments. This hand tool uses high-frequency vibrations to enable us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular scaling instruments. Your teeth have never felt so clean! As a bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the Piezo Scaler.

Our doctors work hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. The amazing intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!

Digital X-Rays

Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images.
