"Just a big thank you for an experience of my first (and hopefully last) implant. I feel very fortunate that you were able to be my dentist for this extremely skilled procedure. Your office is very calming and everyone has such a good attitude."
If one of your family members has periodontal disease, it’s a good idea to avoid contact with their saliva by not sharing eating utensils or oral health equipment, which can spread the bad bacteria.

What We Do
A dental implant is a titanium or ceramic screw that is placed into the upper or lower jaw to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is biocompatible, and in most instances is considered the "standard of care" to replace missing teeth.
Periodontal disease is very common, and often undiagnosed. It is a serious infection that has many effects on an individual's oral health as well as their overall medical health. We employ many different treatments for periodontal disease. These include: LANAP (Laser assisted non-surgical treatment), non-surgical treatment, use of antibiotics, and utilization of growth factors to regenerate lost gum and bone that supports the teeth.
Cosmetic periodontal procedures are often recommended for patients during restorative dental treatment by their dentist. Usually, this means either removal of excess gum tissue (crown lengthening) or addition of missing gum tissue (soft tissue grafting).
We are also certified and trained in the Chao Pinhole Technique
