Advanced 3D imaging makes treatment faster and less invasive

We use high-tech digital X-rays and a 3D cone beam CT scanner to get detailed images of your teeth, gums, and jaw structure. With these images, we precisely plan your implant placement ahead of the appointment for surgery. We can then place your implants quickly and with no or minimal incisions.

Revolutionary
Non-surgical gum treatment using the Perioscope

We treat most cases of moderate to severe gum disease completely non-surgically by using the Perioscope. The Perioscope is a revolutionary, tiny camera that enables us to see deeply buried plaque and calculus deposits, that before the Perioscope would have required exploratory surgery to see. Using the Perioscope, we thoroughly remove these deposits with our scaling instruments.
