Gingivitis is an early stage of gum disease that causes tender and swollen gums. If not treated properly, it can lead to bone and tooth loss, as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and a host of other systemic diseases.
The emphasis in our practice is conservative periodontal therapy. Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical techniques. These include specialized procedures that are designed to remove plaque and calculus below the gum line.Learn more...
Recession occurs when the root of a tooth is exposed. There is loss of the gingival tissue and bone as a result of recession. Many times you will experience cold or hot sensitivity in these areas.
When recession of the gingiva occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using gum grafting techniques is necessary.Learn more...
An implant is a titanium "root" which can be placed into the jawbone. Once integrated with your bone, the implant can be used to support a crown, a bridge, or secure a complete denture.
Implants have been used successfully for over thirty years and are now standard of care for replacing missing teeth.
We ensure the highest standard of care when it comes to your dental health. Our staff will ensure you are comfortable with your chosen treatment option.Learn more...
All-On-4 Teeth In A Day
Reduce the number of visits to your dentist, also reduce recovery time
Rather than living with the constant discomfort and hassles of dentures, many people opt for a full-mouth dental implant restoration. The good news is that you don’t need a dental implant for every one of your missing teeth. Thanks to advances in dental implant technology, Drs. Passero and Feeney can attached an entire arch of upper or lower teeth using as few as four precisely placed implants, sometimes referred to as All-On-4. In combination with Guided Dental Implant Surgery this process can be done effectively and efficiently.
LANAP® Laser Treatment
WHY IS THE LANAP® PROCEDURE better for the treatment of gum disease?
The LANAP Procedure is about as easy as erasing a blackboard- there's NO CUTTING and NO SUTURING.
With gentleness, laser surgery efficiently clears away bacteria without hurting tissue. Most patients say they only experience mild soreness after the laser treatment.QUICKER RECOVERY TIME
Most patients require less than 24 hours to heal, being able to return to daily activities immediately after the procedure.
This treatment only requires one or two sessions at around two-three hours each, and several follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires more time and visits.LESS GUM LOSS
LANAP® is the only laser gum disease treatment FDA cleared that re-grows the tissue and bone lost to gum disease.
