Endodontics is a dental specialty dealing with the tissues surrounding the root and pulp of a tooth. The principal focus of endodontics is root canal treatment — a tooth-saving procedure should a tooth become severely decayed or infected. Although most general offices refer root canal patients to specialists, we have an endodontist on-site who can perform the root canal procedure here in our office with the utmost degrees of comfort and efficacy. Plus, our practice is one of very few dental offices in the region equipped with the highly advanced OPMI® Pico Dental Microscope — a sophisticated magnification system that can give our endodontist a full view of the treatment site, resulting in a superior quality of care and better outcomes from root canal therapy.
Prosthodontics is a subset of dentistry dealing with the restoration and replacement of teeth. From dental crowns and implants to dental bridges and full mouth reconstruction, our experienced prosthodontist provides a number of oral rehabilitation procedures that can be performed singularly or together to effectively address your dental needs.
Laser Gum Treatment vs. Traditional Surgery
Without intervention, mild cases of gingivitis can progress to more severe concerns, such as bacterial infections and periodontitis. Unlike traditional surgery to treat periodontal disease, laser gum disease treatment via the LANAP™ procedure can rid the mouth of bacteria without harming healthy surrounding tissue. This less invasive, more comfortable solution to periodontitis is designed to precisely target damaged tissue in and around the gumline, allowing patients to heal their gum disease using minimally invasive techniques.
LANAP™ Gum Disease Treatment
Short for “Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure,” LANAP™ is a revolutionary method of addressing gum disease when compared to older, more invasive approaches. This bladeless technique not only allows for greater comfort and accuracy during treatment, but LANAP™ also encourages the regeneration of healthy gum tissue. For those who exhibit more severe cases of gum disease, LANAP™ can be a successful and virtually painless solution.
